"The Voice" 2014 continues May 12 on NBC as the top five aspiring artists hit the stage to sing live for comments from the esteemed panel of celebrity mentors and America's votes. A May 12 update to the iTunes store revealed the names of the songs that each of the talented hopefuls will perform.

Country singer Jake Worthington, who represents three-time winner Blake Shelton's last shot at taking a record fourth show trophy, will stray from his down home roots by tackling the Bryan Adams' anthem "Heaven." But he'll then return to his comfort zone with Waylon Jennings' "Good 'Ol Boys," which is perhaps best known as the theme to the hit TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard." The fact that both of Worthington's tunes are heavily dated could spell trouble during the May 13 elimination show.

On the menu for Kristen Merlin, the last of international sensation Shakira's team members, are a pair of very different hits by a pair of popular ladies. Included are the 1995 ballad "Foolish Games" by Jewel, and the more recent power revenge song "Gunpowder and Lead" by country diva Miranda Lambert.

Josh Kaufman, who competes as part of Team Usher, will keep it completely current with two songs released in 2013. Featured on his set list are John Legend's "All of Me" and the OneRepublic tune "Love Runs Out."

Two-time Twitter Instant Save recipient Kat Perkins, who sings as part of Team Adam Levine, will also sing two extremely current tunes. Included are the "Frozen" mega hit "Let it Go" as well as Sia's 2014 release "Chandelier." Both songs represent a marked departure from Perkins' usual 80s rocker girl vibe.

The final hopeful in the mix is YouTube star Christina Grimmie of Team Adam. Grimmie, 20, will show off her vocal versatility with her creative spins on Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" and the Fun hit "Some Nights."

The week's top two vote recipients will advance safely to the "The Voice" 2014 performance finale on May 19. The third finalist will by chosen via the final Twitter save of season six at the close of the May 13 results show on NBC.
