Lady Gaga...mentors American Idol!

On the heels of her sizzling-hot release, Judas - Pop Diva Lady Gaga - will charge into the rehearsal hall at American Idol next week to mentor the four finalists vying for pop star super stardom.

The segment - featuring the Queen of the Monster circuit - will be broadcast May 11th.

James Durbin, Scotty McCreery, Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina will perform songs written by award-winners Leiber & Stoller.

The songwriters are best-known for drumming up memorable musical top-charters like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock."

"Stand By Me" was another big hit they penned.

In addition to the exciting news about Lady Gaga, American Idol producers have acknowledged that there is another treat in store for fans next week.

Steven Tyler will premiere his new music video, “(It) Feels So Good" on the May 12th results show.

Finally, it should be noted that Ryan Seacrest (MySpace friend) announced that auditions for Season 11 will begin Tuesday June 28th in St. Louis.

The show will follow up that open-call session with others in Portland (OR) and Charleston (S.C).
