Watch Katy Perry's Parents Roast Her on "American Idol"

Katy Perry's Parents Say She Is Attention Seeking From Being A Middle Child

Kentuckian Layla Spring has big 'Idol' moment, but eliminated from competition

The wig-snatching viral star was eliminated during last week's American Idol, which narrowed the singing competition from 50 to 24 contestants.

After the first dramatic elimination of the season, complete with Ryan Seacrest saying, "Kieran, dim the lights", the following contestants were sent home by judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan: Dominique, Brandon Diaz, Layla Spring, Trevor McBane and Kay Kay. He made a decision to sing Rufus and Chaka Khan's hit song "Ain't Nobody" and wowed judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan. Katie tells him, "You really have it".

For his solo, Dominique sang "Ain't Nobody" by Rufus and Chaka Khan and "Wake Me Up" for his duet with Aloe Black. "I feel like it's turned out OK for them", she eventually yelled out.

Katy has a fairly loving relationship with her parents these days; they've come a long way since Katy first chose to pursue her music career.

The Dallas teen is one of the most polished performers of the pack, with near-flawless performances of songs by country hit-makers Chris Stapleton and Josh Turner, and a deep, smoky voice that sounds like it belongs to someone twice his age.

Katy Perry is impressed by how she's grown leaps and bounds.

The Top 24 will be trimmed down to Top 14 before hitting the stage for the Live Shows on April 22. Simultaneously from the back, the "Bon Appétit" singer yelled, "You guys!"

During Sunday night's episode of ABC's American Idol, which kicked off the performances of the top 24, judge Katy Perry's parents, Mary Christine and Maurice Keith Hudson, both Pentecostal pastors, took their on-camera time to embarrass their daughter. "That was the real deal", Richie said.

An upbeat, bilingual version of "If I Were A Boy" by Beyonce was Michelle Sussett's choice for solo.

Brandon Diaz decides to take a risk and sing "Despacito" with Luis Fonsi. The singers slow down the song for a more soulful rendition. Bryan said he wanted to polish him on his stage work, but also added that he has shown that he is learning a lot week-to-week. Katy Perry calls her performance "amazing", and Lionel Richime adds that she "killed it". "I don't think we've seen anyone tonight nail it from top to bottom like that", noted Luke.

Cade Foehner, Michelle Sussett, Dennis Lorenzo, Gabby Barrett, Jonny Brenns, Michael J. Woodard, and Catie Turner will move on to the next round.
