American singer and one-third of American Idols’ judging panel, Katy Perry, left social media in shock after footage of her collapsing at an audition went viral.
Watch: Katy Perry collapses at American Idols auditions
Katy Perry left her fellow co-judges — Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie — and American Idols candidates speechless and worried when she suddenly dropped to the ground following a gas leak at a venue in Sunriver, Oregon US.
This video was sourced from People Magazine.
It is believed that Katy Perry collapsed as a result of a propane gas leak on the set of the popular talent show, ahead of Sunday’s episode.
Katy Perry was the first to alert the crew about the smell of gas.
“Do you guys smell gas? It’s pretty intense,” she said before the judges and crew members were escorted outside the audition hall.
Soon afterwards, the contestants and everyone else in the building was evacuated and the fire and rescue department was notified.
Perry, standing outside with everyone else, complained of a slight headache, crying that she’s “not feeling good.”
Before anyone could come to her aid, the pop star fell to the ground. While it is not known if the auditions were allowed to continue after the gas leak, Perry did assure fans that she was doing just fine in a tweet.
When does American Idols play in South Africa?
Multichoice, South Africa’s cable network, no longer broadcasts American Idols, unfortunately.
