While also dispensing some fashion advice — "Ladies, careful with that blue eye shadow ... it's tricky" — Lambert said he will be returning to the "American Idol" stage in April, though he didn't reveal the exact date. Lambert's appearance would round out the return of last season's top five, following on the heels of performances by winner Kris Allen, third-place finisher Danny Gokey, fourth-place finalist Allison Iraheta and fifth-placer Matt Giraud.
"The remix EP ... is coming out around the 14th of April," Lambert said. "That has 'Voodoo' on it and remixes of 'Whataya Want From Me' and 'For Your Entertainment.' " He said "Voodoo" probably wouldn't be released as a single. His next single will be "If I Had You," with a video slated for filming in April. A spokesperson for Lambert could not be reached for confirmation on the "Idol" return engagement or the release date of the remix EP at press time. When fans asked on Ustream if he might also release his pre-"Idol" music some day, Lambert said probably not, as he prefers to focus on his new music. He added that he plans to record new material with guitarist Monte Pittman this summer.
