American Idol has revealed the music genres the Top 5 will be tackling on tonight's live performance show.

A photo of musical director Ray Chew's setlist was posted on the show's official Facebook page.

The Top 5 - Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez - take their picks from the '60s and British Pop. The contestants are also set to perform as duos and trios with each other.

The Top 5 setlist is as follows:

The '60s:
'Ain't Too Proud to Beg' - The Temptations
'The Letter' - The Box Tops
'Proud Mary' - Ike and Tina Turner
'Fortunate Son' - CCR
'River Deep, Mountain High' - Ike and Tina Turner

British Pop:
'To Love Somebody' - The Bee Gees
'Time of the Season' - The Zombies
'Bleeding Love' - Leona Lewis
'You Are So Beautiful' - Joe Cocker
'You Don't Have to Say You Love Me' - Dusty Springfield

Duos/Trios:
'Higher and Higher' - Jackie Wilson
'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling' - The Righteous Brothers

Last week, the Top 6 contestants chose famous tracks by Queen and got the chance to pick their own songs too.

Akon recently admitted that he hopes 16-year-old Sanchez gets "voted off" so he could sign her on his label.

"She's beyond the talent that's supposed to be there," he said. "I think she's overqualified, I really do."

American Idol airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox.
