Katy Perry collapses as American Idol gas leak suspends auditions

Katy Perry dramatically fell to the ground on American Idol after a suspected ‘gas leak’ suspended auditions.

In a clip exclusively shared with People from Sunday night’s episode, guest judge Katy is interrupted during auditions after sniffing out the worrying scent of gas.

Asking her fellow judges, music legend Lionel Richie and country star Luke Bryan, if they could ‘smell gas’ (which as we all know is never a good start to a sentence), things quickly escalated on set.

‘It’s pretty intense,’ she continued, with Luke agreeing: ‘We’re getting heavy propane.’

‘I have a slight headache from it, oh it’s bad, it’s really bad,’ Katy said, standing up from the desk while the auditionees waiting outside were quickly evacuated from the building as the fire service was called.

‘You can smell it, right,’ Hello singer Lionel asked the firefighter, adding: ‘Holy crap.’

Things then take a turn for the worse outside, with 35-year-old Katy saying: ‘I’m not feeling good’ before dramatically falling to the floor. Yikes!

It’s not the first time the Roar singer has hit the ground on American Idol, last season collapsing to the floor during a performance from wedding singer Uché Ndubizu.

Then again, when has KP ever been subtle?

Last week Katy appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live with her fellow American Idol panelists, with all attention turning to the pop star and her upcoming nuptials to Orlando Bloom.

Asked whether she would be inviting Lionel and Luke to her wedding, Katy gasped: ‘I can’t afford them! It’s gonna be a small wedding! Let’s just say they’re on the B-list!’

‘But you know what, it’s so funny, I’m actually like a, not a Bridezilla, I call myself a Bridechilla. I’m like, I’m kinda chill but I am one of those girls where I got engaged February 14th and then I booked the place February 19th. I took it very seriously!’

American Idol is available to stream on Netflix.

American Idol’s Katy Perry ‘tears up set’ after Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan axe ‘great singer’ Saveria – The Sun

AMERICAN Idol judge, Katy Perry, tore up the show's set in protest after Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan kicked off Saveria.

The 'California Girls' songstress wanted the chance to train the aspiring singer and make her into the next American Idol, but Luke and Lionel's decisions thwarted her aspirations.

Katy went into a rage during last night's auditions for American Idol's season 18 after Saveria was kicked out after her audition.

The young English teacher, who hailed from London, Ontario, performed an original song "Tell Me This Is Real" and Katy immediately vouched for her.

However, Lionel and Luke didn't think she had what it takes to be a singer.

Katy told her: "You're a great singer. You are a gymnast singer. You can do cartwheels and backflips and do it all. You have so much potential."

But ultimately, Luke made the final decision and said: "My gut tells me it's a no."

Immediately, Katy stood up and flipped over the other judge's cups, letting out a scream.

She raised her voice: "Y'all are crazy!"

Saveria was shocked, to the say the least, as she stood there with her mouth ajar.

Katy asked the other judges to reconsider their decision and said: "I don't know if you're the next American Idol, but you deserve a ticket to Hollywood, don't make me take my earrings off!"

Still, she was shut down again, which caused Katy to storm off the set.

As Lionel and Luke shook hands with Saveria, Katy was busy destroying the set.

She flipped the lights, took off her earrings, and screamed in the background.

Luke even asked Katy: "Are you really mad?"

This caused Katy to run away barefoot while growling.

She told the cameras: "They need to get their hearing checked."

She even took to Twitter to express her anger towards their decision.

She wrote: "Honestly, this almost made me quit the show because I thought Luke and Lionel had lost their damn minds."

She followed it up by tweeting at Saveria directly: "I still think they were wrong. How bout that!"

And Katy wasn't the only one protesting the other judges' decisions because #JusticeForSaveria started trending on Twitter moments later.

One fan of the show wrote: "I'm going to be honest. Both Lionel and Luke got this wrong! SMH. I heard potential. More than some golden ticket winners from past season!"

Another one tagged all the judges and said: "Luke and Lionel are nuts. She has a beautiful voice. You guys could have told if she can sing a different song.

"I agree 100% with Katy and also a lot of fans agree. She has potential. You guys should reconsider bringing her back!"

While another one commented: "She was a very good vocalist! ok, maybe the arrangement wasn't perfect but she sings better than most that got put through."

Saveria thanked fans and Katy for the support and tweeted out in gratitude.

She wrote: "I can't believe #JusticeForSaveria is trending on American Idol's twitter page. Ya'll are so sweet. I can't believe the amount of love I'm receiving.

"Sending you all my love to you guys too."

Saveria was actually a child star back in Canada and was hoping to restart her career with the show.

Taylor Swift and Katy Perry are a purr-fect match in pink leopard print

Best friends fur-ever?

Katy Perry was snapped at Wednesday’s “American Idol” premiere in LA wearing a blush pink metallic animal-print minidress by Stella McCartney ($2,130) with wide, fluttery sleeves and a matching rope belt.

If the frock feels familiar, it’s likely because Taylor Swift — Perry’s once-foe, now-friend — chose the very same one for a December appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to promote “Cats.” A longtime fan of the British designer’s, the 30-year-old musician recently collaborated with McCartney on a clothing line and pop-up shop tied to her latest album, “Lover.”

The two pop stars, who famously feuded for years before burying the hatchet with baked goods, styled the dress quite differently.

True to her maximalist M.O., 35-year-old Perry played up the piece’s shine with more sparkling accessories, including crystal-studded Jimmy Choo heels ($995), a bedazzled statement necklace by Lele Sadoughi ($325) and starry earrings from Maryjane Claverol ($258).

Swift kept her look more minimal, simply adding a pair of metallic Christian Louboutin platform sandals ($1,095) and a swipe of her signature red lipstick.
