"We have a problem", Lionel told the contestant in the clip. "Well, a big problem actually because I don't like you". "They have a lot of work to do, you know, while I'm out getting married again", referencing her ex Russell Brand, who she was married to from 2010 to 2012.
Richie, who was praised for his wise words to Idol hopefuls, added, "The reason I don't think she needs me there is you only need one preacher, you can't have two". I don't like your voice. "I take it very seriously". "I don't like your attitude". What made the moment even more awkward was the fact that they were also there when she said it!
When things continued to unravel as the trio sat on Jimmy's sofa, Katy absolutely added,"It is gonna become a little wedding" Making light of this embarrassing situation, Bryan joked,"Lionel and I, we have been dropping hints and this solidified [it]". "Simply kidding." Lionel added, "The explanation I don't assume she wants me there may be you exclusively want one preacher, you'll be able to't have two".
True to her maximalist M.O., 35-year-old Perry played up the piece's shine with more sparkling accessories, including crystal-studded Jimmy Choo heels ($995), a bedazzled statement necklace by Lele Sadoughi ($325) and starry earrings from Maryjane Claverol ($258).
"And to watch the back stories of the kids", Bryan said. "We get to watch the premiere like America get's to watch it. We get to fall in love with these contestants and their ups and downs and their paths to get here".
"American Idol" returns for Season 3 on Sunday, Feb. 16, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
