As reported on last night's Top 12 performance show, this year's American Idol finale has found a new home, leaving the Kodak Theatre for the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. The 7000 seat venue opened in November 2007, and stands adjacent to the Staples Center. Both the performance show on Tuesday, May 20th and the two hour grand finale on Wednesday, May 21st will broadcast live from this state of the art facility. While there's no mention of tickets being for sale for the event, I'm sure mine are in the mail. The rest of you guys will just have to watch at home. For more pics, check out the Nokia Theatre L.A.

Fuller said, "Having an undiscovered songwriter create the winner's single seemed like a natural next step for our show . . . This show has always been, and will continue to be, all about fulfilling dreams."
