Katy Perry’s American Idol Judging Goes Viral
This week marked the Showstoppers round on American Idol Season 21, as the contestants fought for their chance to make it into the Top 24. As we’ve come to expect, the judges tried to fake out several singers by making them think they had been eliminated before revealing the good news.
In one clip, Perry tells Nutsa, “We did not put you in the Top 24… You put yourself in that Top 24.” In another clip, she tells Zachariah Smith, “You may not be going home to flip burgers, but you will be going home… to pack your bag to come back to the Top 24.”
The compilation was posted on TikTok, where commenters are comparing Perry to Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model. One user wrote, “Katy Perry as a doctor ‘you did not get cancer, but cancer did get you’.”
