Katy Perry Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction During ‘American Idol’ When Her Skintight Leather Pants Split

Katy Perry handled her American Idol wardrobe malfunction like an absolute champ!

On Monday, March 28, the “Firework” singer suffered a wardrobe malfunction during Idol’s first round of Hollywood Week.

The pop superstar split her pants on the set of Idol during an impromptu performance of her chart-topping hit, “Teenage Dream.” The incident occurred when Perry and her fellow Idol judges, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, as well as Idol hopefuls were singing along to the hit song.

During the random sing-along, Perry was singing the lyrics, “let you put your hands on me in my skin-tight jeans,” when she bent down and ripped the back of her tight red leather pants in front of Richie and Bryan as well as the Idol contestants watching from the audience waiting to perform.

“They busted!” Bryan then shouted, referencing Perry’s pants, which split.

“That was a first ladies and gentlemen, the concert is officially over,” Richie said jokingly, while Bryan pointed at Perry laughing. “”I’m so sorry, all video will be collected.”

“Can I get some tape? Some gaffer’s tape?” Perry asked, as she walked off the stage to try and get some tape to repair the rip in her leather pants.

Bryan and Idol producers then assisted Perry in correcting the wardrobe malfunction with yellow duct tape.

This wasn’t the first time Perry encountered a wardrobe malfunction on Idol. In 2018, the hitmaker was faced with a similar situation alongside Richie and Bryan. The “Daisies” singer laughed so hard that her silver bodysuit ripped at the seams. Luckily, Richie helped cover her up when she repaired the split.

American Idol airs every Sunday and Monday at 8/7c EST on ABC.
