Katy Perry on American Idol has got to be one of the more colorful – and controversial – guest performances in Idol history. As a result, the Katy Perry on American Idol video clip has the Internet buzzing with ferocity. But it is her shameless promotion of Adam Lambert that might be generating more controversy than he skimpy outfit.
Decked out in an Elvis-inspired ensemble (with her butt cheeks hanging out for the world to enjoy), Katy Perry stirred up controversy right away with her silky cape. It had Adam Lambert emblazoned on it in script lettering. Yes, Katy Perry shamelessly pimped front-runner Adam Lambert and, as a result, some people are outraged.
Did AI approve this blatant show of favoritism? Will it have any affect on the vote? One could certainly argue that odds-on favorite Adam Lambert doesn’t need Katy Perry’s support to win the American Idol crown. So, is really a big deal that Katy Perry – who was scantily-clad in a high-collared Elvis suit that showcased her magnificent tush – pimped Adam Lambert in front of millions of people?
How ’bout that outfit? Shazam! Her high-colored, Elvis-inspired outfit (with her butt cheeks hanging out for America to enjoy) definitely overshadowed her vocal skills while performing her latest single, “Waking Up In Vegas.” But who cares? It was really all about the butt cheeks, was in not?
A little less controversial was Season 6 Idol winner Jordan Sparks’ performance of “Battlefield,” a tune on her currently-untitled second album. Great song, great performance (do you think it rips off Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield? I’m just saying) She also looked great, but in a more toned-down way than Katy Perry, whose butt spilled out of her outfit as if it had a mind of its own.
Interestingly, Katy Perry proves that a singer need not have a great voice to have a successful career. Persona and stage presence play an important role (having a great a%& doesn’t hurt either), and this is one of the reasons why Danny Gokey may have been voted off. While he’s a great singer (and my personal favorite), he apparently did not have enough charisma to get him into the finale. But then again, neither, in my opinion, does Kris Allen. Go figure.
Speaking of figures, I can’t get Katy Perry’s out of my mind. Color me a typical male, but that outfit has people talking. What a spectacular pr move. Bloody brilliant.
