Both competition shows have seen major changes this season, with Idol returning to the airwaves for the first time in two years and the original Idol victor, Clarkson, serving as a first-time coach on NBC's rival series. He and Katy Perry had a moment after he said "wig", leaving Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie confused. Glaze nervously agreed, and when he leaned in for a second cheek-kiss, Perry turned her face so their lips connected, which surprised Glaze so much he fell backward.
This time around, she's released new Katy Kat lip gloss in a range of colors, two Katy Kat eyeshadow palettes in warm and cool tones, fake lashes and loose glitter.
After contestant Michelle Susset invited the judges to get up and dance during her energetic audition, Perry toppled over in her sequined dress, exposing her crotch to the camera and fellow judges.
There was bad blood when Fox ended "American Idol" two years ago, with producers wanting to continue the show. She got to the finals on America's Got Talent in 2014 when she was just 12. And Lionel hugged her.
Jokes aside, it really was all fun and games in the end and the judges gave Sussett a golden ticket to Hollywood, because they thought she was super fun. William Casanova, 26, is the next artist to audition, and he sings "A Song For You" for the judges. He had the judges singing along with him, but there was no ticket for him.
Trevor Holmes, a 27-year-old construction worker from Thousand Oaks, CA, then performed Brett Young's "In Case You Didn't Know", and Luke admitted, "Good Lord you're a dreamboat". He performed "Unaware" for which Katy dubs him the best male artist they've auditioned so far and the judges agreed he's quite ready for Idol and he'll be moving on.
You can't keep Katy Perry off the dance floor. As she was dancing, Perry lost her balance, taking a tumble and exposing herself to the judges in the process.
