Can't select my image in Illustrator CS6 to fill it with color


I traced an image in image trace, (Illustrator CS6) it is on its own layer and now I can't select it. I've tried with the select tool, the direct select tool, magic wand, lasso to fill it with a different color but nothing works. I can't drag the eyedropper into it with the color from the fill box, nothing. Do I need anchor points on it to select it? How to I get that?

Select the image and click the Expand Button on the control bar across the top of the screen.
