It's your resident American Idol blogger Nicole back with more dish from last night's episode where Katy Perry sat in as the guest judge!
The spunky singer made it very clear from the start that she was going to be an honest judge during her day on Idol. Back in August she tweeted, "Ok, I must confess, I'm SO excited to guest host on American Idol. I think Simon & I are gonna get along famously. He tells it like it is & truthfully, that's how ppl need to hear it. This isn't like ur local highschool talent contest. This is AI! Ppl that wanna b in music biz need to know this **** isn't a cake walk! :P No more pitty passing kids on to the next level just cause they have some kinda sob story or cuz they look like a replica of past idol winners."
And honest she was! But not only to the contestants, but to fellow judge Kara DioGuardi! The most interesting part of last night's episode was Kara belting out the lyrics to Katy's hit, "I Kissed A Girl", only to be quickly interrupted by the singer. "Please stop before I throw my Coke in your face!" she said.
From that point on, there was plenty of tension in the air, especially when the two disagreed over the fate of Idol hopeful Chris Golightly who sung "Stand By Me." Kara loved his audition but Katy was definitely not feeling it. "This is not a Lifetime movie, sweetheart. You have to have talent!" Ouch!
That was the end of the "Hot N Cold" singer's time on Idol this season, but next up tonight in the judges chair is Joe Jonas and Neil Patrick Harris! You know I'll be tuning in.
Your J-14 Intern,
