Katy Perry Cringes Through Her Parents' Appearance on 'American Idol'

"You've shown us so many different shades of you", said Perry, adding that being able to sing in Spanish is something that gives him an edge in the competition.

Before her performance, 16-year-old Layla Spring from Lebanon, Kentucky, had the chance to video chat with her idol - and "American Idol" season 10 runner-up - Lauren Alaina, who advised her that the show would "change her life", but she would "have to continue on that journey".

Catie Turner teamed up with pop singer-songwriter Andy Grammer to sing a duet of Grammer's own song "Good to Be Alive". With dramatic cuts hanging over all their heads, the talents know that these short moments on stage revolve around much more than a attractive voice from the person standing in the "American Idol" oval. "You didn't miss one thing", he says.

Katy Perry has been absolutely stealing the show since she started judging on American idol, from befriending "wig" boy to giving another reluctant contestant his first kiss but this time the tables have turned on her. By the way, the song choice was Catie's dad's idea.

An upbeat, bilingual version of "If I Were A Boy" by Beyonce was Michelle Sussett's choice for solo. Additional females to get to the next phase reportedly include Mara Justine and Michelle Sussett. Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan then eliminated five singers based on both performances. She sang Beyoncé's moving "If I Were a Boy", with her native language mixed into a verse.

Surprise American Idol guests Mary & Keith spilt the tea on the judge and their daughter Katy calling her mouthy and attention seeking! Katy Perry calls her performance "amazing", and Lionel Richime adds that she "killed it".

Trevor McBane explained his unique style of dress to Bobby Bones, and that brought out an unexpected emotion that the mentor encouraged McBane to keep as he performed "Way Down We Go" by Kaleo. Woodard, Gabby Barrett, Jonny Brenns and Catie Turner. "You're a world-class singer", Bryan said.

In the next duet, it's Kay Kay with Train's Pat Monahan. I hope she'll be able to sing because her mouth is wide open.

Of the pre-recorded experience, Briggs tells PopCrush the men didn't need much guidance, but that she did impart at least one key piece of wisdom. Brandon Diaz perhaps took the biggest risk of the night, singing "Hello" in front of the man who wrote the love song. Michael J Woodard [VIDEO]bowled a bit with Bones before an emotional rendition of the Beatles' classic "Golden Slumbers" from the "Abbey Road" album.
