As if it wasn’t awkward enough to watch “American Idol” cute country dude Laine Hardy trying to learn how to dance from this week’s coach, Grammy-winning former contestant Lauren Daigle. There was an even more “what-the-heck” image to deal with right at the start his showstopper performance of Chuck Berry‘s “Johnny B. Goode.”
When all the judges stood up, Katy Perry couldn’t resist upstaging the lad by using the occasion to fix a wedgie situation. Certainly, we never saw Paula Abdul or Jennifer Lopez ever try to pluck at their posterier region on live TV. Watch the video above and you can’t miss it.
It didn’t take long for viewers to call out Katy’s rude move on social media:

But Katy being Katy, she didn’t hide her head in shame and apologize for her on-air adjustment. She simply owned it — as she did with her heartbreak over having to send Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon home last night.
Let’s not be too hard on the lady. She has other things on her mind such as already declaring Alejandro Aranda the Season 17 winner last night when he gave one of his best performances while singing an original song, “Poison,” while playing acoustic guitar during the showstopper round. Her exact words: “How wonderfully interesting will it be when you change ‘American Idol’ by winning ‘American Idol.'”
Plus, she is in seventh heaven these days after getting engaged to actor Orlando Bloom on St. Valentine’s Day. Plus, there is talk of having a Disney Land-themed wedding at Cinderella’s Castle although no actual details have been set.
