Led Zeppelin will reportedly be heard on American Idol as one of the choices for the show Wednesday night. The parents of Haley Reinhart were at the Monday council meeting of the Village of Wheeling, Illinois and gave some suprise details of the Led Zeppelin song to be used on Wednesday night's Idol performances.

According to Haley's parents, the group members Jimmy Page and Robert Plant reached out to the American Idol executives and gave permission for the Idol hopeful to use any of their singles for a performance.

"Jimmy Page and Robert Plant has never given any permission to use a Led Zeppelin songs to Idol. When they heard Haley do ‘House of Rising Sun' they contacted Idol and said if she wants to do one of our songs she can," explained Haley's mom to the city council. "When you get that kind of offer you do it."

According to Haley Reinhart's parents the three songs the Idol contestant will be singing are "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac, "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morissette and "What Should Never Be" by Led Zeppelin.

American Idol Top 3 performances start tonight at 8pm on FOX with Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina vying for the top prize of being the next American Idol.
