"I think we just need to vote". Unfortunately, however, Katy's enthusiasm got the best of her during a recent episode of the hit singing competition series when she made a decision to get up and dance while contestant Michelle Sussett sang Selena's 1994 single "Techno Cumbia". Fellow judges Lionel Richie and country music star Luke Bryan were dancing along with Venezuelan contestant Michelle Sussett, who beckoned the 33-year-old "Swish Swish" singer to join in. Perry said. Lionel Richie commended her for being unique. She not only impressed the judges with her singing but with her songwriting, performing an original tune. What is "wig"?Plenty of viewers had that question after Noah Davis' audition, with the phrase trending on Google search.

The classic American Idol censor graphic hovered over Perry's bottom as she laid on the floor and jokingly struggled to get up.

Perry kept up with flirtatious attitude with a couple of other contestants who made it through to Hollywood, including one hopeful named William Casanova who said he "sells shoes to handsome women". They complied, but Katy slipped and fell. But it was his day job that had the judges fascinated. "What if they're missing a toe?" She came in to the audition room with her sister Layla (who was just barely old enough to audition herself) and the two both charmed the judges. And Lionel explained that Rissa sucked him into her world with the beauty of her voice. The producers liked her personality enough to put her in an interstitial Macy's commercial with Ryan Seacrest. It was clear William was battling a case of nervous, but the judges had no complaints and decided on a unanimous "yes" to send him to Hollywood. It was a no.

ABC's Idol dropped from its premiere high of 10.3 million viewers (which was in fact an historic low for Idol premieres) to 8.4 mil, with a 1.8 rating in the key adults 18-49 demo.
