We'll be on the edges of our seats watching 'American Idol' next week, as the remaining Top 5 perform Wednesday, followed by the results show on Thursday, May 5. But country fans who cling to Scotty McCreery will not only get to see him sing. They'll also receive a fresh dose of Lady Antebellum on Thursday night.

The trio is due to perform a brand-spanking-new song, according to Twitter. "SO excited to perform a new song next Thurs on Idol! Hope you guys can tune in!" Lady A tweeted this morning.

Additionally, 'Idol' judge Jennifer Lopez will take the stage alongside rapper Pitbull to perform her latest track, 'On the Floor.'

We'll have our fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed that our favorite Josh Turner soundalike Scotty McCreery is able to hold onto his top spot next week, but even if not, he'll be out on the road for the 2011 'American Idol' Tour this summer with the rest of the gang, including the handful who have been kicked off in recent weeks.

Lady Antebellum are currently wrapping up their third studio album, the follow-up to 'Need You Now.' The premiere single, 'Just a Kiss,' will reportedly make its world debut on May 2.
