  • Show-stopper Katy Perry appeared as energetic as ever during her dazzling performance in Brazil's Allianz Parque stadium in Sao Paulo on Saturday evening

American Idol airs on Sunday nights at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.

After the premiere of American Idol last week, some viewers were in an uproar over the fact that judge Katy Perry kissed contestant Ben Glaze on the lips after he said he'd never been smooched.

For her "Idol" audition, Rittenhouse chose to perform Underwood's version of the country classic "I Told You So".

Perry replies "Oh, you don't have to be sorry", when he reiterates: "I love Taylor Swift".

While some of the viewers interpreted the comment of Perry as a honest compliment, the others thought she was just trying to throw shade.

Katy attempted to bury the hatchet previous year when she told journalist Arianna Huffington she was "sorry" for the dispute on her Thrive Global podcast, but Taylor has yet to publicly respond to her rival's apology - and back in 2015 said she would "never" discuss her competitors in interviews. Nevertheless, the singer refused to reveal whom.

The judges were all smiles when Passero sang her composition, "Troubled Mind", and they gave her a standing ovation when it ended. "It was just kind of fun and games", he said.

Swift went on to claim that that singer tried to "sabotage an entire arena tour" and hire a group of people out from under her.

Watch Bryan's full interview below. Incredibly, Perry offered her a third chance since surely, there couldn't possibly be anymore pee or poop inside the dog - which is where you would be wrong! During an episode of Carpool Karaoke in May 2017, she said that she tried to talk to Swift about it but she did not speak to her.

Entertainment Weekly called Passero's voice "insanely powerful" and the Vulture blog from New York Magazine said she unleashed a "vivid, Earth-opening vocal". She added that she forgave her and she was sorry for anything she ever did and that she hoped the same from her.
