She was all set to be on X Factor UK and The Graham Norton Show, but now, suddenly, Lady GaGa has pulled out!
The Poker Face singer surprisingly backed off of Norton's show on Friday and then X Factor — which airs tonight — and the last minute cancellations are causing concern for producers and leading to a LOT of speculation.

According to media reports, TV execs at both the BBC and ITV were furious about GaGa's cancellations, and music industry insiders are claiming that it all comes down to poor chart placings for her brand new singles, Perfect Illusion and Million Reasons.
One source revealed more about GaGa's decision to step back:
"Lady Gaga had been scheduled to come to London this week to promote her new album Joanne but she cancelled all her appearances a little over a week ago. No one knows why but there's speculation it's because the comeback singles are underperforming."

Of course, her new album Joanne is due out on Friday, so that should be pretty telling — good or bad — in terms of how she will do with fans.
On X Factor tonight, One Republic is all set to replace her.
Inneresting timing with all this!!
