The pop star was sitting next to her fellow judges when she burst into fits of laughter.
“I just split my pants,” the roar singer announced before showing her wardrobe malfunction to the audience. The show makers covered the wardrobe malfunction by using their logo.
Singer and judge Lionel Richie, ever known as the gentleman, reached out to help the singer, but Katy decided to turn around and showed the audience her splitting shimmering pants.
After the singer posted the video on her Twitter, fans were quick to criticize her, calling her immature and saying she did it for the ratings.
Grow up Katy.

This is why the ratings are not good, the talent is there but the judges are questionable, boring to say the least they like to haha with each other way to much disrespectful to contestants. Ryan rocks as usual ???

The other judge, Luke Bryan, stayed in his seat and jokingly told Lionel, “Save the children.”
A crew member came to rescue Katy Perry and used tape to patch up the singer’s pants.
Previously, the Teenage Dream singer fell off during the auditions of American Idol and showed the audience a little too much. Perry has been making headlines quite often for her Idol antics nowadays.
Katy Perry was recently also brutally criticized for flirting with a male contestant on screen. She forcibly locked lips with the young contestant, who wasn’t very comfortable with her act. Katy was widely criticized for ‘stealing a teenager’s first kiss’.
Meanwhile, there are many who love Katy for the outgoing personality she has and continue to watch the show for her.
