    The U.S. ambassador to Indonesia is urging the powers that be to let Lady Gaga's canceled show go on as planned. Gaga's June 3 gig, which was sold out, was canceled when the permit was revoked after Islamic extremists threatened to cause chaos.

    The ambassador Scot Marciel said, "This is a matter for Indonesia to decide. Our hope would be of course that it’s the Indonesian community as a whole to be heard on the views and not the views of a small group. The U.S. believes in freedom of expression and tolerance. And you know I think that Indonesia as I said has a long tradition of support for freedom of expression and tolerance as well," according to the Jakarta Post.

    Will this show take place?
