Once-paralyzed singer tries for American idol, what happens next Special

New American Idol judge Katy Perry has stirred up controversy with viewers questioning her professionalism following "inappropriate" and "flirtatious" behaviour during the show.

Thaddeus sang "Don't You Worry Child" by Swedish House Mafia. She did one of Perry's hits in 2014 to make it into the AGT top 12.

"Have you kissed a girl and liked it?" I was really getting into this performance - and I wanted to hear even more! Unfortunately, however, Katy's enthusiasm got the best of her during a recent episode of the hit singing competition series when she made a decision to get up and dance while contestant Michelle Sussett sang Selena's 1994 single "Techno Cumbia". Hearing this Perry asked him to come to her and, after letting him kiss her on her cheek, "tricks" him and kisses on his mouth. Katy and Luke agree, and away Ms. Jones goes to Hollywood.

"Nobody's gonna wanna make out with me ... it's frightful", Perry moaned, as she repeatedly puffed out her throat, frog-style.


William Casanova, a 26-year-old women's shoe salesman from Washington, D.C. was up next, and he performed "Song For You" by Donny Hathaway.

Trevor had a girlfriend, but he also confessed to having the biggest crush on Katy for years.

"Katy Perry the pop princess got many pulses racing in 2008 with the release of the hot single 'I Kissed a Girl" and she is still hotter than ever. Some of the best on the internet, she says.

Autumn Wood, 27, Katy, Texas: The library clerk came in dolled up in what Katy described as "glamazon" style, but her version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was weird: She sounded like Cher with a bad cold.


During Monday night's episode, Perry had similar antics up her sleeve.

Garrett Jacobs sang "A Man's Man's Man's World" and also played guitar.

Lionel called the quality of his voice "fantastic", adding that he can "go places" with that gift.

Benjamin was the floored when on a second attempt, Katy turned quickly and smooched him right on the lips. However, Garrett received a golden ticket. Spring is a younger version of country favorite Kellie Pickler in the naïve young singer department, and to Richie's credit, he gives the 16-year old a major truth bomb about the music business. David feared he'd be paralyzed from the waist down forever, but he gradually saw his condition improve.
