Mondayamerican idol It brought a lot of surprises, both in terms of who made the Top 16 and Katy Perry’s new look.
The singer of “Roar” and Idol The judge was stunned by a striking ‘do’ in black, in stark contrast to the bright blonde looks she’s been offering all season.
Perry’s long black locks stole the spotlight, and the singer paired the new style with a big, bold gold cross necklace and an animal print blouse that really came together to wow fans.
While many tuned in to see which of the top 24 would make the Top 16, and which eight hopefuls would receive the ax, fans couldn’t help but marvel at Perry’s look on Twitter.
Perry teased her sassy look before the show, sharing some snapshots on her social media, revealing both her hair and her ensemble.
“Coming into the top 16 with raciones vibes tonight, don’t forget to watch then vote!” Perry wrote.
Perry didn’t exaggerate it either: The show actually shrunk the competition down to size when the Top 16 was revealed, leaving more than a few contestants, including pop star-like Hannah Everhart, tall and dry.
