Katy Perry Says It's Not Always About The Person That Wins 'American Idol'

Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie all stopped by Good Morning America this morning (February 27) to dish about the all-new season of American Idol!

The three judges revealed that this year’s pool of talented contestants “really showed up,” noting that the singing competition is “not always about the person who wins.”

“It is called American Idol not American Idols and some of these kids that have made it to the top — they all deserve that spot,” Katy, 34, said. “History says maybe it’s not about the person that wins.”

“I tell people every day you got to be very aware of the fact that No. 1 means you have to be famous now,” Lionel added. “[Being a runner up] means you’ve studied the course and can figure it out and you can go home and have time to work on it.”

Katy, Luke and Lionel then engaged in a friendly competition to see if they can name each other’s songs in guessing game – Watch more after the cut!
