Katy Perry takes a tumble and flashes fellow 'American Idol' judges

Last Night Now

American Idol auditions continued Monday night, and one contestant had the judges on their feet. Well, at least for a little bit.

Venezuelan singer, Michelle Sussett was all about turning up the energy in the room, as she told judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, "I consider myself a show-woman. I'm here to make people dance, laugh and enjoy music, and make them have a super, super happy moment." Sussett kicked off her audition performance by singing an a cappella song in Spanish, before she suddenly stopped to play music from her portable speaker. It was then that Sussett asked the judges to stand up and dance with her. Initially, Perry seemed to have some reservations about the request but, eventually, the pop star obliged.

There was definitely some awkwardness as the three judges stepped out onto the floor to bust a move, and then things got even more awkward when Perry slipped and fell. However, it wasn't embarrassing at all. In fact, Perry turned it into a hilarious moment as she then proceeded to pretend like she couldn't get off of the floor, slipping and spreading her legs wide, in a mini dress. No one was quite sure exactly what was happening but, luckily, the pop star's wardrobe malfunction was handled, thanks to fellow judges Richie and Bryan. Once the two men helped Perry to her feet, Richie stated, "Some things you have to do for the business. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it," while Bryan exclaimed, "There are things a man can't unsee."

Jokes aside, it really was all fun and games in the end and the judges gave Sussett a golden ticket to Hollywood, because they thought she was super fun. Bryan even stated, "She may be the next damn Jennifer Lopez."
