The fifth-season Idol champ will perform "Seven Mile Breakdown," the latest single from The Distance, his new album, during Wednesday's live eighth-season American Idol results show, which will feature another finalist being eliminated based on home viewer votes cast after Tuesday night's performance episode.

American Idol's Top 5 eighth-season finalists will be singing songs that were made famous by members of the original Rat Pack that included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. during Tuesday night's performance show.

Hicks released The Distance in February. The album was produced by Simon Climie -- who has worked previously with Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana and Faith Hill -- and was released under Hicks' own Modern Whomp Records label.  Hicks "mutually agreed to part ways" with Arista records, the label that signed him to a recording contract after he won Idol in 2006, in early 2008.

Last summer, Hicks also made his Broadway debut in Grease, playing the role of Teen Angel. He reprised the role when the musical began a national tour in December.
