Craziest Wardrobe Malfunctions to Ever Happen on TV Talent Shows

1. Katy Perry, American Idol 2022

During an impromptu performance of her smash hit “Teenage Dream,” Katy Perry hilariously suffered a fashion disaster. The singer was bending down when her red leather pants suddenly ripped at the back. Perry didn’t seem ashamed though, even asking for a yellow duct tape to repair her bottoms.

2. Katy Perry, American Idol 2018

Once when Perry joined an auditionee on stage to dance, energy and excitement probably got the better of her that it led to a wardrobe fail. While moving to the music, she lost balance on her heels and slipped, accidentally giving people in the studio something to “unsee.” Not losing her poise though, the singer just laughed it all off.

4. DreamBears, Britain’s Got Talent 2009

Reaching the Semi-finals of BGT, Justin, Luke, and Dan danced to “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls. Unfortunately though, Simon Cowell buzzed the act, jokingly citing “wardrobe problem” as the reason why. This was because one member’s tight short lifted too much that it revealed his black underwear.

This wasn’t supposed to be a wardrobe malfunction, but David Walliams is willing enough to drop his trousers for everyone’s eyes to see. Back in BGT 2017 auditions, Walliams jumped onto the judges table to pull his pants and show his cheeky tattoos. What made this scene even funnies was Cowell’s unhidden horrified reaction.
