Listen up, ‘American Idol’ fans! Check out this song list for Sunday’s 3-hour gangbusters finale [EXCLUSIVE]

We who idolize “American Idol” already know which artists will perform on this Sunday’s live finale starting at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT alongside Alejandro Aranda, Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg — the Top 3 contestants who are vying for the Season 17 title. They include all three judges — Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

But Gold Derby —  along with “Billboard” magazine — has scored an exclusive look at what actual songs will be done by the participating performers, included singers previously eliminated on the show. Here is the line-up of grand finale numbers, which could be expanded or changed by showtime:

SEE ‘American Idol’ winner predictions: Alejandro Aranda widens lead over Laine Hardy, but what about Madison?

Left off this list is Alejandro, who is expected to get a solo spot on the season wrap-up. One might presume he will do a reprise of one of his original compositions that he performed previously. Another change from what was released before: The entire Top 10, and not just Uche, will jam with Kool & the Gang. Changes might still be pending for this line-up, but it is bound to be quite the show.
