Katy Perry Collapses Following Gas Leak On American Idol
Usually on talent shows like American Idol, it is the performances which have the greatest impact on the judges. But in an unusual turn of events, it seems it was actually a gas leak which knocked Katy Perry for six while making the show.
In a clip from the episode, which airs in the US on Sunday evening (23 February), judge Perry can be seen saying: "Do you guys smell gas? It's pretty intense.
"I have a slight headache from it. Oh it's bad, it's really bad."
The studio is then evacuated as emergency services arrive, with country music singer Luke Bryan keen to point out 'this is not a joke, there really is a gas leak'.
As if scenes could get any more dramatic, Perry then gasps 'I'm not feeling good,' before collapsing in a heap.
Whether or not Perry really was knocked out by it is for you to decide, but safe to say ABC has made the most out of it either way.
If you are concerned about the welfare of the 35-year-old singer, then it seems you shouldn't be, as she has told fans not to worry about her on social media.

Last year, Perry faced backlash after a shoe design in her fashion range was accused of depicting blackface.
The 'Rue Face Slip On Loafers' and the 'Ora Face Block Heel Sandals' were available in both pink and black and featured blue eyes, a triangular nose and bright red lips, but were pulled from sale following the controversy.
In a statement, Perry told The Hollywood Reporter she was 'saddened' by the reaction to the shoes.
She said: "The Rue and The Ora were part of a collection that was released last summer in nine different colourways (black, blue, gold, graphite, lead, nude, pink, red, silver) and envisioned as a nod to modern art and surrealism.
"I was saddened when it was brought to my attention that it was being compared to painful images reminiscent of blackface. Our intention was never to inflict any pain. We have immediately removed them from Katy Perry Collections."
