Lady Gaga edited on “American Idol,” posts full performance online

HollywoodNews.com: Lady Gaga’s appearance on last night’s “American Idol” results show has caused a bit of a controversy … not for what was shown, but rather for what was not.

The pop sensation pre-taped a performance of her latest single, “Alejandro,” and apparently started with a slower riff of another hit, “Bad Romance.” But the clip was edited down to account for time before it aired on the results show. Is it us, or is “Idol” frequently going long, even as they remove singers week after week! And a results show should never have to be trimmed for time. Announcing the results should take 30 seconds, and the rest of the time should be allotted to guest performers. But I digress.

So Gaga, never one to remain quiet, posted a link to the full version on her Twitter account.

“Idol cut down my performance–see the full-length performance here little monsters,” the starlet wrote, providing a downloadable link. Sadly, that link is now busted. But not before Perez Hilton was able to grab the performance and put it on his own site. Click here to check it out.

Earlier on Gaga’s Twitter page, she dedicated her “Idol” performance to her “Little Monsters,” saying, “Paws up! I dedicate this performance to you. You make me strong.”
