Katy Perry Says Josh Groban is 'The One That Got Away'

Katy Perry has revealed that Josh Groban was the inspiration for her song “The One That Got Away!”

The 32-year-old singer had James Corden as a special guest during her Witness World Wide live stream in partnership with YouTube on Sunday (June 11) and they played a game of “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.”

During the game, Katy was asked to rank three of her ex-boyfriendsOrlando Bloom, John Mayer, and Diplo – from best to worst in bed. She threw the host for a loop when she said that Josh needs to be in the ranking!

Josh Groban is in there, I’m just kidding,” she said. “He’s amazing.”

After James asked if he’s really in her top three, Katy said, “No, he’s not in there. But I do want to say, people are like, who is ‘The One That Got Away’ about? That’s Groban.” She then made a mind blown motion and said, “He’s one of my good friends.”

Josh Groban took some time out of his busy schedule to help teach music to some lucky students at a school in the Bronx!

The 36-year-old singer – whose new song “Evermore” is featured on the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack – documented the experience on Instagram earlier this week.

“What an inspiring afternoon at PS91 in the Bronx,” Josh wrote. “These kids are so inspired by music and the arts. It’s all about the look on their faces, that spark.”

“Thank you Kathy Damkohler, executive director of Education Through Music and Principle Meridith Struhl Nasjlett and mostly to the students for their glorious voices and focus and drive,” he added. “Future leaders in the making. #artsed #findyourlight (edited last photos because there were some “looks on their faces” that were caught off guard 😂).”

“Thanks PS 91 kids for pulling me up to sing Hallelujah with you!!!” Josh captioned the video below, in which he leads the kids in singing the late Leonard Cohen‘s hit song “Hallelujah.”
