Reports are coming in that American Idol have paid a truly hefty price to have Lady Gaga perform on Wednesday’s results show.

Gaga reportedly asked for $250,000 which left producers initially balking (especially considering the steep price increase since she performed 'Just Dance' on the show just two years ago) but they have obviously given in.

We're hearing Gaga will be wearing a particularly provocative thong/fishnet body suit which has already been taped.

Let's hope the performance lives up to the hype. But that's the thing with Lady Gaga (it usually does).

This week American Idol will be minus Siobhan Magnus, the Irish American beauty who won the support of Irish America, but not the nation.
