To say that the entertainment industry is suffering because of the coronavirus would be an understatement. From big-budget movies to prime time TV shows, production on always everything has been paused indefinitely. Among these shows is the American Idol. One of the American Idol judges happens to be Katy Perry. The Roar singer recently discussed how the reality singing contest would carry on with its live shows amidst a pandemic.
Katy Perry Answers Fans’ Burning Questions!
Whenever we see a celebrity live on any social media platform, we go crazy (hey, that’s a fact). So this Sunday, Katy Perry decided to host a QnA session on Facebook in an Easter bunny costume. And boy, were people ready to flood her with their questions!
Among the most common questions were the ones regarding the current season of American Idol. For those of you unaware, the show was all set to start airing its live episodes from April 6. But considering that all non-essentials are in quarantine due to coronavirus, how would the live shows be produced? Well, looks like Katy has the answer to that question.
“We’re gonna all have to be really creative — I know we are going to be really creative,” said the 13-time Grammy nominee.
Perry Recommends Viewers to Tune in!
Katy Perry remains hopeful that she, along with the rest of the American Idol judges, will attempt to use the power of creativity to make the live shows worthwhile. However, viewers will have to tune in to see how that turns out. Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry will be judging the show from their homes.
Celebrity Family Feud and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Secrets & Surprises ended up replacing the live broadcast of American Idol on April 6. Moreover, a two-part special covering the lives of the Top 20 contestants will be spread across two Sundays: 12th (this past one) and 19th April.
We are curious to find out how the creative team behind the show manages to get around such an obstacle. What about you?
