lady gaga 320 'American Idol': Lady Gaga returns?Lady Gaga tweeted on Friday, April 16: “See you on ‘American Idol.’ MAY 5th, Little Monsters.”

We are taking this to mean that Ms. Gaga is returning to the “American Idol” stage on May 5 to perform her hit “Telephone.”  Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Lady Gaga previously appeared on “American Idol” May 1, 2009 when she joined David Cook at the results show to perform her hit “Poker Face.” Check out the video below if you missed it the first time around.

This means in the coming weeks, we’ve got the Black Eyed Peas and Carrie Underwood for “Idol Gives Back,” Justin Bieber performing at some point (he pre-taped a performance) and Lady Antebellum for whenever “Idol” goes country (they also pre-taped a performance).

We have reached out to FOX for confirmation on Lady Gaga’s tweet. Are you guys excited about her return to “American Idol?”
