Arriving as soon as possible after the phenomenal success of Fox's American Idol: The Search for a Superstar and just before the American Idol national tour begins, American Idol: Greatest Moments collects some Battle-Field Of Love - Blues Dimension - B.D.
Is Dead, Long Live B.D. the ten semi-finalists' definitive performances from the series.
