Sunday night on “American Idol,” Trevor Holmes sang Phillip Phillips‘ “Home” in front of judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. Trevor and Katy have a flirtatious history, but Katy declared that she was “over it” before he came out to give his latest performance during Hollywood Week. However, soon after Trevor sang Katy fell into a jealous rage over his girlfriend. Watch Trevor’s performance video above.
After Trevor finished his “Home” performance at the Dolby Theatre, Katy tried to follow him but then stopped cold when he hugged his girlfriend in the audience. She fake cried in Luke and Lionel’s arms, screaming, “He wanted to make this place my home!”
As Luke tossed tissues in Katy’s face, Lionel threw his arms up and told the crowd, “I want to go home. I don’t think I signed up for this. Did I sign up for this?” Katy pretended to blow her nose in the tissues, truly committing to the act.
Backstage, unaware of what was going on, Trevor remarked, “I got a good feeling from the judges. When I was singing they were all smiling and Lionel was like, ‘Look at me, focus right here.’ That calmed me and helped me with my performance, so I do feel like I’m gonna make it through.”
Trevor is a 27-year-old construction worker from Thousand Oaks, CA who’s had a massive crush on Katy for years. He was thrown for a loop back in his initial audition when Katy flirted with him, seemingly falling in love at first sight. Our “American Idol” live-blogger Denton Davidson wrote in his latest recap that the Katy/Trevor crush is “getting a little old at this point.” Do you agree?
