Perry’s co-judges, including soul and R&B legend Lionel Richie and country singer Luke Bryan, are aware of her upcoming plans. Perry credited Lionel Richie for his influence on her performance during King Charles III’s televised Coronation Concert, highlighting his ability to persuade anyone to participate in memorable moments.

Reflecting on a viral incident at Westminster Abbey, Perry humorously recounted her struggle to find a seat with no assigned seating, acknowledging that her fashionable lilac Vivienne Westwood fascinator might have obstructed views for those seated behind her.

Known for her chart-topping hits like “I Kissed A Girl,” Perry joined American Idol during its sixteenth season in 2018, following in the footsteps of previous judges like Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey, and Nicki Minaj. Her time on the show wasn’t without controversy, as she faced accusations of “mom shaming” and backlash over a kiss with a contestant.

Katy Perry‘s journey continues to evolve, encompassing music, family, and a desire for personal growth beyond the American Idol stage.
