american idol top 8 'American Idol' Top 8: '80s night set list revealedThe Top 8 finalists on “American Idol” are getting their ’80s on, and now we know what songs the group of kids — all but one of them weren’t even alive in the ’80s — are singing. There’s some “Time After Time,” some “Islands In the Stream,” some “Flashdance” — but nary an “Against All Odds” in sight (though Phil Collins is repped with some Genesis to start off the show).

They were mentored by No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal.

Check out the playlist, including a list of four ’80s-a-riffic duets, as tweeted by the official “Idol” twitter account (which posted a pic of musical director Ray Chew’s set list for the night):

“That’s All,” Genesis
“Time After Time,” Cyndi Lauper
“Wind Beneath My Wings,” Bette Midler
“Flashdance … What a Feeling,” Irene Cara
“If You Don’t Know Me By Know,” Simply Red
“I Like It,” DeBarge
“How Will I Know,” Whitney Houston
“I Want to Know What Love Is,” Foreigner

“Stop Dragging My Heart Around,” Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty
“Islands in the Stream,” Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton
“I’m So Excited,” The Pointer Sisters
“I Knew You Were Waiting for Me,” Aretha Franklin and George Michael
