Katy Perry collapses on American Idol set after judges and contestants are evacuated amid gas leak
AMERICAN Idol will see its most dramatic episode yet as judge Katy Perry appears to collapse on the ground following an on-set gas leak.
The entire crew, cast and contestants of the talent show which kicked off season 18 last week had to be evacuated from their auditions in Sunriver, Oregon.
In a sneak peek ahead of Sunday's instalment, Katy along with her other judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryant are suddenly overcome with the smell of "propane" in the log cabin holding the auditions.
在周日这一集的抢先看中，凯蒂和其他评委莱昂内尔·里奇（Lionel Richie）和卢克·布莱恩特（Luke Bryant）在举行试镜的小木屋里突然被“丙烷”的气味熏倒。
Firework hitmaker Katy becomes increasingly concerned as she exclaims: "Do you guys smell gas? It's pretty intense."
To which country crooner Luke, 43, tells the crew around them: "We're getting heavy propane."
Beginning to feel unwell, Katy adds: "I have a slight headache from it. Oh it's bad, it's really bad."
Soon emergency services rush to the studio as crew and contestants are evacuated from the building in a rush while fire alarms are heard going off around them.
One of the contestants, who is about to audition is left reeling as the camera crew is ordered to leave and an ambulance arrives outside.
Singer Luke then informs viewers at home: "This is not a joke, there really is a gas leak."
As sirens flash in the background, Katy, 35, dramatically collapses to the ground after declaring: "I'm not feeling good."
Katy has yet to comment publicly on the gas leak or her falling to ground in the aftermath.
