Katy Perry Thanks EMTs After Fainting On “Idol” Set Due To Gas Leak
A grateful Katy Perry shows her gratitude to first-responders who attended to her after she passed on while filming American Idol. During a clip of the audition episode for the new season, the judges began complaining that the set smelled like gas. Co-judge Luke Bryan said that it was “heavy propane,” so production rushed the judges and auditioning singers outside.
