Taylor Hicks, Rat Pack Week coming to 'American Idol'
Adam, Matt, Danny, Kris and Allison will tackle Frank, Sammy and Dean next week
"American Idol" will celebrate the music of the Rat Pack next week, while also welcoming back a former winner.
FOX announced on Wednesday (April 22), in the aftermath of the double-elimination of Lil Rounds and Anoop Desai, that the remaining five contenders -- Kris Allen, Matt Giraud, Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert -- will perform standards made famous by the members of the original Ray Pack, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.
Rat Pack Night will be next Tuesday, April 28.
The following night, on April 29, "Idol" will send home one finalist, cutting the field to the Final Four.
Wednesday will also mark the return of Season Five winner Taylor Hicks, who will perform "Seven Mile Breakdown" off his album "The Distance."
Hicks, who follows recent "Idol" returnees like David Archuleta, Jennifer Hudson and Kellie Pickler, can currently be seen co-starring in the national tour of "Grease."
