Katy Perry suffers wardrobe malfunction on American Idol

The Teenage Dream singer, who serves as a judge on the singing competition, revealed in the middle of judging a contestant that her silver sculptural crop top had broken. She poked fun at the fashion mishap by kneeling behind the judging panel while her fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan made quips about ratings. "I guess it is a woman's world... It's a family show!", Katy Perry / American Idol. Katy later returned to her seat, hugging a cushion to her chest to protect her modesty.
