I’m sure this is being couched as a positive thing, but I just don’t get it.
Lady Gaga is set to mentor the final four contestants on American Idol: James Durbin, Scotty McCreery, Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina. In a bizarre fit, they will perform songs written by Leiber and Stoller, who wrote Elvis Presley hits, such as “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock.”
Ryan Seacrest tweeted: “I only have one word for our mentor on @AmericanIdol next week………. Gaga.”
How she is going to mentor country singer Scotty McCreery will be weird….. maybe something about theatricality?
Gaga will also perform at the Idol finale, as will Stevie Nicks. Performing at Idol is a win / win, but mentoring?
Gaga fans are reminded there is a concert on ELEVEN at 8:30pm Sunday night.
