Pia Toscano won’t release her debut single, “This Time,” until July 12th, but fans will get a first listen tonight when she performs it for the American Idol Summer Tour, kicking off in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In an age appropriate performance, Thia Megia is expected to cover Selena Gomez’s feel good hit “Who Says,” while Casey Abrams will put his own twist on Rob Thomas’ “Smooth.” Group performances and duets will likely include Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” Rihanna’s “California King Bed” and Katy Perry’s “Firework.”

A fan favorite this season, Paul McDonald is expected to bring back his rendition of Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May” for the tour as well.

Naima Adedapo, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Haley Reinhart, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin and Season 10 victor Scotty McCreery round out the Top 11, also taking the stage on the nationwide tour. Debuting tonight, the show will wrap on September 10th in Rochester, NY.
