Katy Perry flashes 'American Idol' audience after she has a wardrobe malfunction
Katy Perry's has had her share of wardrobe malfunctions on American Idol and this time, it's tape to her rescue
Katy Perry seems to have bad luck when it comes to her dresses on American Idol. The singer happened to have yet another wardrobe malfunction on the show but this time, she tried to work with it like a pro with the help of a tape. As crazy as it sounds, Katy showed us how a tape can save the day.
The incident took place on Monday night's episode moments after contestant Maddie Poppe finished her collaborative “Bubbly” performance with Colbie Caillat. Katy was sitting next to her fellow judges, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan when she burst out laughing. Little did she know that it would turn out to be a disaster as her silver jumpsuit was unable to handle her excitement. “I just split my pants!” Katy was seen announcing on the show.
The singer then got up to show people that she wasn't joking. Lionel quickly jumped up to cover her backside but he was a bit late as the people got to see something more than they had expected on the show. In order to not let too much be seen, the show logo was quickly placed strategically to hide the split from TV viewers.
As Katy walked around the stage in disbelief, Lionel joked around as he shouted: “Save the children!” Luke happened to be a silent watcher of the entire incident as he was seen laughing while being seated in his seat throughout this fiasco. Luckily, there was one thing that could save the day and it was none other than a tape.
A crew member came to Katy's rescue as she was seen saying “Tape my butt.” The singer then apologized and made sure that she sat comfortably in order to avoid any more wardrobe malfunctions. Unlike others, Katy decided to laugh it off. She took to Twitter and shared the video on Monday (April 16). “I have good news and bad news today,” she wrote. ” I won’t be able to live stream #AmericanIdol today but: I CAN promise you some pants splitting fun.”
This is not the first time that Katy has suffered a wardrobe malfunction on the show. Previously, Katy suffered a wardrobe malfunction when she got up to dance as contestant Michelle Sussett sang Selena’s “Techno Cumbia.” While showing off her moves, Katy accidentally lost her balance because of her heels and fell to the ground, unable to get back up. The singer suffered a wardrobe malfunction revealing her undergarments.
