Mother’s Day and Coldplay might seem like an unusual theme for American Idol, but that’s exactly what we can expect from this Sunday’s new episode. And now we know exactly which songs each of the Top 7 singers will be performing.

Sunday’s episode has been dubbed “Coldplay Songbook & Mother’s Day Dedication.” Each singer will perform a song for their loved one, as well as a Coldplay hit. Frontman Chris Martin will be the singers’ mentor, as well as debuting the band’s new single “Higher Power.”
