idol-rehearsal-you-dont-know-youre-beautiful.jpgThe "American Idol" Season 11 summer tour doesn't officially start until July 6 in Detroit, but Zap2it caught up with the Top 10 finalists for a preview of the big extravaganza, which, as of right now, spans three hours. The cast even gave reporters a preview performance of one of the new group numbers, a cover of the One Direction hit "You Don't Know You're Beautiful."

While winner Phillip Phillips hasn't been able to rehearse too much while he recovers from major kidney surgery ( he's doing "better than expected" and should be back to 100 percent soon), the rest of the gang has been putting in long hours at a North Hollywood rehearsal space.

Phillips walked in to join his castmates after they'd finished their a cappella version of the One Direction song (the real thing will feature a full band with a "sick" drummer, promises Elise Testone), and the group decided they'd sing again and dedicate it to their ailing friend.

Check out Zap2it's video of the performance below:
