Feb. 20, 2013 at 2:29 PM ET

The "American Idol" hopefuls are going to get a lesson in rock 'n' roll stardom this season. Fox announced on Wednesday that Bon Jovi is set to perform live on the March 14 results show.

The band, which has sold more than 130 million albums since forming in 1984,  won't be performing any of its classic hits that older viewers will be familiar with, though. Instead, Bon Jovi will be performing its new single "Because We Can," from the upcoming album "What About Now," out March 12.

This week, "Idol" kicks off its Sudden Death Round in Las Vegas. The show will go to live airings the week of March 5.

"American Idol" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
