American Idol
8 pm/ET Fox
The epic sing-off signs off in tonight's Season 8 finale. It's been a zigzaggy, sing-songy journey — a four-month, spaced-out odyssey that rocketed through the preliminary auditions (remember Bikini Girl?), the Hollywood rounds, catty group performances and the cuts at the judges' mansion. (Got drama, Tatiana?) Over 100,000 hopefuls auditioned this season, and it all comes down to the Top 2 and the crowning of either Kris Allen or Adam Lambert. On tap is a big pop celebration with special performances, surprise guests and a reunion of the Top 13. From the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. — Dean Maurer

Romance sparks for Barb, too, with one of Richard's single friends, and Matthew continues his giddy pursuit of the bride's adventurous sister, who is determined to spice up the proceedings with a little naughty fun. — Tim Holland
