Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson & Jason Aldean to perform on next results show

Finalist Pia Toscano was eliminated last night on "American Idol" after she received the fewest of America's votes. On Wednesday's performance show, the Top 9 performed the songs from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Toscano, 22, from Howard Beach, N.Y., sang "River Deep, Mountain High."

The episode also featured performances by punk legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Iggy Pop and season four "American Idol" finalist Constantine Maroulis.

On Wednesday, April 13 (8-9:30 p.m. ET live), the Top 8 finalists - Casey Abrams, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald and Haley Reinhart - return to the "American Idol" stage to perform songs from the movies.

Tune in the following night, Thursday, April 14 (8 p.m. ET live), to the live results show to find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who is sent home. In addition, Grammy Award-winning pop singer Rihanna will take the stage and season one "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson and country music superstar Jason Aldean will perform their duet, "Don't You Wanna Stay."
