Audience members at last Wednesday’sÂ American Idol results show were treated to a special performance from pop star Lady Gaga which will air this coming week. According to witnesses, the eccentric singer’s exciting and elaborate production took nearly an hour to set up before cameras started rolling. Keep reading for a sneak preview of what to expect from Lady Gaga’s outlandishÂ American Idol appearance…
AfterÂ American Idol‘s live results show concluded on Wednesday, fans were invited to stick around for an outrageous performance from pop superstar, Lady Gaga. The appearance was taped for an upcoming episode ofÂ American Idol.Â It took Idol producers an hour to reset the stage for Gaga’s elaborate production which required a giant fire-breathing angel, black metal trees, and park benches.
Zap2It reports that “the entire set looked like the S&M version of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ meets the cemetery scene from ‘Phantom of the Opera’ populated by half-naked nymphs from ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream.’” After the props were set, Lady Gaga’s band and backup dancers took the stage for a run-through without the pop star. She appeared moments later and performed a medley of Bad Romance and Alejandro.
HollywoodLife reports thatÂ ”There were eight hard-bodied male dancers scantily clad in what looked to be black Spanx â€” each guy wore a black glove as well, Ã la Michael Jackson.Â They writhed and gyrated to the music before the lady herself took to the stage wearing a black bra, garters and underwear covered by some filmy gauze. Her butt cheeks were on full display, but at least she kept her girls covered!” According to Entertainment Weekly, two of those backup dancers were former contestants onÂ So You Think You Can Dance (Mark Kanemura from season four andÂ Ben Susak from season two).
Before Lady Gaga’sÂ American Idol performance, she addressed the crowd saying,Â ”I just want to say thank you.Â You’re my little monsters, and you’re the reason we all work so hard for our dreams.” Lady Gaga tweeted that the performance will be featured on this week’s results show, but Idol producers have yet to confirm that.
