On American Idol last night, most fans were probably unaware that Lady Gaga‘s appearance on the show was edited down. Lady Gaga, however, wants the world to see the full, unedited version of her performance of “Alejandro” and “Bad Romance” on American Idol – and we’re happy to oblige.
Lady Gaga’s appearance was taped last week, which apparently gave the American Idol powers-that-be plenty of time to decide what they did, and did not, want shown on air. American Idol producers allegedly made the cuts to Lady gaga’s performance due to time constraints. Honestly, we can’t find anything racy enough in the extended version to warrant censorship, so we hope that’s true.
Regardless, Lady Gaga may not have been pleased by the editing of her performance on Idol. Although she hasn’t directly said anything negative about the snips, she did make sure fans knew about them.
“Idol cut down my performance,” Lady Gaga posted to her Twitter fans. Gaga also posted a link to the unedited video version of her performance. That link stopped working, but we found a copy of the Lady Gaga unedited “Alejandro” video and share it with you here. Enjoy little monsters!
What do you think? Did American Idol edit Lady Gaga’s performance just because they were short on time? Or do you think producers thought the parts they snipped were a bit too racy for their prime time show?
