Katy Perry reacted quite hilariously to a Top 11 contestant on American Idol during a unique song challenge on Monday night’s episode.

Each of the remaining contestants were given a song to perform by each judge – Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan – with the singer selecting one and then tasked with guessing which judge picked that song for him or her.

20-year-old singer Noah Thompson selected John Mayer’s 2009 song Heartbreak Warfare, which was actually selected by Bryan, though Thompson guessed Perry… seemingly unware that Perry and Mayer dated off and on from 2012 to 2016.

After his performance, host Ryan Seacrest asked which of the judges picked the Mayer song for him to perform, with Thompson seemingly unsure.

‘I picked Katy. But honestly, I don’t know. I picked Katy. That was my guess,’ Thompson said, as Perry seemed quite surprised.

Seacrest gave him a chance to change his mind, but Thompson said he was sticking with it, with Seacrest asking Perry if it was true.

‘Noah… I feel like maybe you should Wikipedia me,’ the 37-year-old singer said, which caused both Richie and Bryan to burst out laughing.

Still oblivious, Thompson said, ‘That’s a big no then?’ as Perry said she picked a John Denver song.

‘It’s all a great song, you did great, but I can’t talk anymore,’ Perry said, shaking her head before disappearing under the table.

Bryan admitted that he picked the John Mayer song as Katy started to compose herself after messing with Thompson a bit.

Both Bryan and Richie praised Thompson for his performance, and when it came to Perry, she joked, ‘Who’s going to pay for my extra hour of therapy?’ 

‘Honestly, you sounded great. It’s a great song. He’s a great artist. You’re a great artist,’ Perry began.

‘And I think that the fact that you keep on challenging yourself to grow, like, in the moment, is brilliant,’ she added.

‘You’re surprising us. You couldn’t do John Denver, because that was a little bit, you know, obvious. Good for you, man,’ Perry concluded.
