"American Idol" 2014 resumes March 26 on FOX as the top nine finalists lead the band as they sing their favorite songs. Spoilers posted to The Idol Pad just hours before the live broadcast revealed the evening's complete set list, which includes an eyebrow-raising set of tunes from a variety of musical genres.

Alex Preston, who drew the favor of One Direction fans for his March 19 take on "Story of My Life," will take America back to the 1990s with his spin on the No Doubt hit "Don't Speak." Aspiring country singer Dexter Roberts, who has earned judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr., and Keith Urban's praise for his song choices but criticism for his delivery, will stick with his roots as he tackles Little Big Town's "Boondocks."

On the heels of an inventive Lady Gaga cover that received a lukewarm reception, rocker-in-training Caleb Johnson will go classic with "Dazed and Confused," which was originally written and performed by Jake Holmes but later re-invented by Led Zeppelin. Former Vegas front runner Sam Woolf, who's taken heat for an apparent lack of confidence, will sing "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's. Finally, the last guy still in the mix, C.J. Harris, is scheduled to perform "If It Hadn't Been For Love" by The SteelDrivers.

On the ladies' side, teen Malaya Watson will go ultra classic with "The Long And Winding Road" by The Beatles, while Jessica Meuse, who drew a very mixed reaction from the judges for her March 19 iteration on the dark Foster the People hit "Pumped Up Kicks," is slated to sing "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac.

Finally, teen and electronic music aficionado Jena Irene Asciutto is slated to sing "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence and Paul McCoy, while Majesty York, who finished in the bottom three during both the top 11 and top 10 results shows, will tackle "Shake It Out" by Florence and The Machine.

"American Idol" 2014 continues March 26 on FOX with the top nine performance show.
