American Idol is taking its Top 8 back to the 1980s tonight.

And judging from the song spoiler list I just saw, we're going to be treated to classics recorded by everyone from Michael Jackson to Joan Jett to Cyndi Lauper.

The big question, of course, isn't what the Idols are singing.

It's whether they can build on the moment created by last week's performances, the best we've seen yet from this group.

For song by song grades from tonight's show, head here.

Those still in the competition include Jess Meuse, Jena Irene Asciutto, Malaya Watson, Caleb Johnson, Sam Woolf, Alex Preston, Dexter Harris and C.J. Harris.
