Fox has released a featurette from "Lisa Goes Gaga," the season finale of The Simpsons on Sunday guest-starring Lady Gaga.

To watch the clip, CLICK HERE.

Here's how Fox describes the episode.

"Lisa tries to reverse her status as one of the least popular girls in school by ghostwriting positive things about herself on the school blog. When her plan backfires, her social ranking plummets to a new low -- until a psychic force tells Lady Gaga (guest-starring as herself) that Lisa needs her help. With Gaga's assistance, Lisa and the entire town of Springfield realize that being yourself is better than being like anyone else."

Look for video from the episode later in the week here in The Continuum.

Dr. Lee Rosen (David Strathairn), having exposed the existence of Alphas to the unsuspecting public, finds himself discredited and imprisoned by a government desperate to cover up his revelation. The rest of the core team has disbanded and some, without Rosen's guidance and care, have regressed to their old, destructive ways. They must now battle their individual demons in order to reunite and try to save their own."
