The “Judas” singer arrived in Paris Tuesday to promote her new album “Born This Way,” and is set to perform some of her hits at the festival, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Gaga will also head to Cannes to perform a live concert on Wednesday on Canal Plus’ hit show “Le Grand Journal” and will sit down for a little Q&A with the show’s host Michel Denisot.

Gaga’s presence will surely cause a stir as the 64th annual Festival de Cannes kicks off on Wednesday.

The eccentric 25-year-old will also be expected to draw in big ratings for Fox’s “American Idol,” when she mentors the four final contestants on Wednesday.

Throughout the show, Gaga will be seen coaching James Durbin, Scotty McCreery, Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina as they prepare to sing songs by Leiber and Stoller, who wrote such Elvis Presley hits as “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock,” and co-wrote “Stand by Me” with Ben E King.

Another controversial singer,, Kanye West, is expected to perform at the Cannes Film Festival party next week.
