'American Idol' Judge Embraces Embarrassing Wardrobe Malfunction During Show

This isn't the first time this has happened.

Katy Perry accidentally bared it all to the American Idol audience for the second time this season.

A wardrobe malfunction left the judge flashing more skin then she planned, forcing producers to cover her up with a digitally imposed logo.

It all went down on Monday night's episode after contestant Maddie Poppe wrapped up her rendition of "Bubbly" alongside Colbie Caillat.

Perry surprised the audience by announcing that her reaction to the performance led her silver jumpsuit to rip at the seams.

"I just split my pants!" she yelled out.

The "Roar" singer put her butt on display shortly after that, turning around to show everyone that she wasn't kidding around.

Although Lionel Richie attempted to cover his fellow judge up, she was too quick for him.

"Save the children!" Richie yelled out, with judge Luke Bryan shown with a grin on his face.

As a quick solution, a member of the American Idol crew came out with tape to patch up Perry for the time being.

"Tape my butt," she said while they mended her outfit.

Clearly not embarrassed by the incident, Perry took to social media with a video of what went down."I have good news and bad news today," she wrote on Twitter.

"I won’t be able to live stream today but I CAN promise you some pants splitting fun. Tune in at 8/7c for round of All Star duets!"

Perry's previous wardrobe malfunction took place around the same time last month.
