American Idol fans have slammed Katy Perry once again over her reaction to live voting results.
After such an intense battle, the top 20 contestants of American Idol season 21 were finally revealed. The last singer to be announced was Wé Ani and she stunned the viewers with her impressive performance of ‘Skyfall.’
But Katy Perry seems to rub fans up the wrong way due to her shocked expression.
Presenter Ryan Seacrest stood before Ani, Elijah McCormick, Malik Heard and Dawson Wayne.
After Ani’s name was announced to join the rest, she took to the stage and performed Adele’s Skyfall and blew judges and audiences away with her voice.
Judge Luke Bryan told her: “You’re so deserving. It’s amazing what you do night in and night out, you crushed it.”
Lionel Richie also made similar remarks before adding: “The amount of talent you have is undeniable.”
But the feedback of Perry, who was a huge supporter of McCormick, said: “Wé, oh my god, I’m just so shook right now.
“First of all, shook by the results, and I’m also shook by that song is so dramatic, there’s so much drama going through my body right now I need a nap.”
The Teenage Dream singer failed to give Ani praise or specific feedback but took the opportunity to tell viewers about the importance of voting.
“But the truth is, America, you guys have the votes. You’re the ones voting,” she said.
“And if you’re not voting, you’re not using your voice. Your faves aren’t safe. So from now on, vote for who you want to see in the Top 12,” she added.
Many fans were quick to slam Perry, with one person tweeting: “Katy Perry needs to leave! That was very rude to show her displeasure with America’s choice of We Ani. She had the best performance of the night!”
Another said: “As much as I love them, I hope @katyperry and @lukebryan apologize to We Ani for not letting her have her moment and telling America they need to vote instead of applauding her performance. Ryan said move votes than last season came in, so obviously America voted!!!”

I watched the show tonight and thought nothing of her reaction. People are too quick to react. Stop the nonsense and go on with the show! America does vote so except it. It is what it is!!! The girl is talented and made to the top! I’m so tired of hearing stupid comments like this and people making a big deal over a comment that didn’t even disturb her getting the top 12. 🛑 STOP ✋
I watched the show and noticed her expression which was down right wrong. She owes We Ani and apology. Unbelievable!!!
Omg. People are not allow to have an opinion? She thought it was the wrong choice. It’s her professional opinion. Ffs go to your cry room
My thoughts are …good God our country is crashing and these idiots are on here tryin’ to cancel Katy Perry because they don’t like her opinion. As my grams would say, “you mad? You got the same rags to get glad in. “
And Katie is correct in saying people need to vote! Stop whining about someone’s comment, she deserves to have a reaction just like everyone else does. Even the judges are going to have ones they like. Lionel tonight told Lucy that she would get his vote. When it came down to it, he voted for her. If Katie couldn’t have an opinion, then he shouldn’t have either. Get over it!
I was shocked as well. There was a platinum card holder and I thought he would go through. They are judges they are supposed to have an opinion 😳🙄
Perry certainly was acting very snobbish towards Lionel, sitting with her back towards him and sitting closer to Luke..plus facial expressions.
I had to Google why she’s acting like that, very very noticeable..
I saw her reaction as well. She really should resign from the show! That’s the second time she insulted a contestant!
Katy Perry is getting to big for her britches…she no eds to go sit her happy ass down somewhere and have several seats!!!!🤪🤪
See I took her reaction as shock that it came that close to We being cut from Americas votes… she was rooting for her. People misinterpreted the situation and Katy’s reaction.
Just get over your interpretation of what someone says. She is a judge and allowed to have an opinion! That is what she is paid for, unless it offends someone! Which every opinion will!
Katy Perry is a ignorant idiot.
