During a song challenge on “American Idol,” Katy Perry had a humorous reaction to a Top 11 participant.
The participants competed in a “Judges’ Song Contest,” in which each contestant chose one of three songs to sing and had to guess which judge chose the song.
Noah Thompson was chosen to perform “Heartbreak Warfare,” a song by John Mayer released in 2009. The Kentucky contestant, 20, then told host Ryan Seacrest that Perry had chosen the song for him. “I choose Katy,” Thompson remarked, oblivious to the fact that Mayer and Perry had dated. “But, to be honest, I’m not sure.” Katy was my choice. That was my educated guess.”
Perry said, shaking her head in astonishment, “Noah… “I’m thinking you should Wikipedia me,” the singer of “Teenage Dream” stated nervously.
“That’s a big no then?” Thompson joked.
Perry hilariously yelled “I’m triggered!” before sliding out of her chair onto the floor in embarrassment. “It’s a great song, you did great, but I can’t talk anymore,” the singer, 37, laughed.
When it was finally revealed that Luke Bryan chose the song for Thompson, Perry asked, “Who is going to pay for my extra hour of therapy?”
Perry and Mayer dated on and off from 2012 to 2015, and even have a song together titled “Who You Love.” She is now engaged and has daughter Daisy Dove with her longtime partner, Orlando Bloom. The couple welcomed their little girl in August 2020.
Katy Perry is in need of ‘treatment’ after she covered ex-boyfriend John Mayer on American Idol.
