Katy Perry performed on American Idol Thursday night.

Sadly, it was pre-recorded, leading to a chorus of boos from an audience that was beyond pumped for her to treat them to a live rendition of "Part of Me."

While awaiting the week's American Idol results, the crowd was screaming and squealing in anticipation of Perry, one of the biggest stars in music today.

For whatever reason, the stage manager and audience coordinator refused to let the crowd in on the secret that the performance was actually pre-taped.

According to E! Online, they kept teasing enraptured fans, saying, "Should we tell them? Do you want to tell them? OK, let's just let it be a surprise."

That "surprise" sucked royally. Disappointed Katy Perry fans began booing and being vocal about their disapproval of only seeing a pretaped performance.

Pretty weak for sure. Why not just say it up front? Anyway, you can still watch Perry's pre-taped rendition of "Part of Me," her latest hit, after the jump:

Katy Perry and Robert Ackroyd may or may not be "dating" but they are definitely hooking up. These photos of them at Coachella leave no doubt about that.

The pop sensation and the Florence and The Machine guitarist, who were also spotted together at the music festival last weekend, were all over each other.

According to some reports, Katy, who was linked to Baptiste Giabiconi just last month, was already referring to him as her "boyfriend." One can see how:

Looks like Perry is ready to move on from her soon-to-be ex-husband Russell Brand, who filed for divorce back in December after 14 months of marriage.

Brand and Perry have been on relatively good terms since then, with Brand refusing to make a play for Katy's money and expressing nary a harsh word.

He's even keeping the tattoo he got in honor of her. Who said all breakups had to be contentious? Anyway, here's more photos of Katy and Robert Ackroyd:

Baptiste Giabiconi was so February.

It seems like Katy Perry is wasting no time playing the field splitting from husband Russell Brand. Her latest reported love interest? Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, who was holding hands with her at Coachella last weekend.

Here's them on the way to see her BFF Rihanna and Calvin Harris:

She also reportedly called him her "boyfriend" too, according to reports.

"Backstage at the Artist Lounge at Coachella last weekend, Katy kept saying her boyfriend was the guitar player for Florence + the Machine," a source says.

"Then later, he and a bunch of friends were supposed to go see Dr. Dre together, but Katy said she was waiting to watch her 'boyfriend' perform!"

Ackroyd also tweeted, "Best Coachella ever. Scratch that, best weekend ever. Dre, Snoop, Pac, Nate, Fiddy & KP." So clearly he's into her in some way!

What do you think? New couple alert? And do they make a cute one?

Who knew Carly Rae Jepsen's song “Call Me Maybe” would be a viral craze?

The unofficial music video featured Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Tisdale. Now Katy Perry is getting into the act with a homemade version of her own.

Perry's vibrant purple hair is on display as she and her friends sing, dance and rock out to the song by the pool, making their lives look way more fun than ours.

Anyway, live vicariously through Katy and Carly Rae's infectious hit below!

Katy Perry rocked purple hair to Coachella this weekend.

The "One That Got Away" singer abandoned her signature blue hair for a darker shade of oddness for the music festival ... which she apparently enjoyed quite a bit.

Sporting purple locks, KP has undergone yet another couture change since her split with Russell Brand. In recent months, she's also been a blonde and a ... pink.

Which of her two most recent shades is best? Vote!

Teen Vogue features the lovely Katy Perry on its new cover. The pop superstar says she has already tired of being famous ... but it's just the price of creating.

A heavy price, no doubt. The 27-year-old despises the massive fame that her success has brought her, calling it “disgusting by-product” of what she does.

The singer has endured heavy scrutiny after the end of her marriage to Russell Brand, and admits she’s sick of critics commenting on her personal life.

Katy Perry in Teen Vogue

She tells Teen Vogue, “I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do."

“It’s a delicate creature – a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago."

"If you try to be everything to everyone, you’ll only end up completely confused.”

Perry admits she wants to be “as approachable and relatable as possible,” but can’t understand why some devotees break down in tears when they meet her.

She says, “When I meet fans and they’re crying, I’ll say, ‘Calm down, there’s nothing to cry about. I’m not going to bite or attack or grant you three wishes."

"Let’s just hang out and have a good time.’”

Indeed. And enjoy these Katy Perry pics:

The incomparable Katy Perry is set to add movie star to her resume with the release of her 3D concert documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, premiering July 5.

The film not only offers a front row seat to the pop hit-maker's concerts, but takes viewers behind the scenes for the rarest of looks inside Perry’s personal life.

Above all, KP promises eye-popping 3D sequences: "The word 'cheap' was not in the vocabulary. Hello - it's 3D. You're going to get hit with a lot of sh!t."

Bold words, but undoubtedly true. Here's the full-length trailer:

Now that's one way to make a memorable fashion statement and avoid becoming one of the celebrities who got slimed ... what would the point be?

At least night's Kids' Choice Awards, Katy Perry showed off a few inches of her midriff in a neon green ensemble with matching peep toe heels ...

... and a sports bra-like top dripping in slime:

  • Katy Perry at Kids' Choice Awards

The award show, of course, is known for its orange carpet and time-honored tradition of dumping industrial-size quantities of green slime on some "lucky" winners.

Perry was among the Kids' Choice Award winners for her role in The Smurfs, but the only slime Katy wore was on her chest from the get-go, though.

Paired with her purple and blue ponytail and bubblegum lips, the pop superstar actually managed to make this absurd ensemble look cute. Not a small feat.

Katy Perry and rumored rebound beau Baptiste Giabiconi have been playing it coy as far as the romance rumors go ... but here they are in a cute Twitpic!

The hunk personally Tweeted a picture of the duo cuddling up this past weekend.

"@katyperry hey my #littlekats u look So amazing in this pics!:)" he wrote. Aww.

Katy Perry and Baptiste Giabiconi

The duo has become inseparable as Perry makes her way around Europe this week, with Baptiste Giabiconi, a model and aspiring singer, fielding equal measures of abuse and encouragement over his rumored dalliance with Katy.

No official confirmation about their relationship status, of course. She's not one for the celebrity gossip. Good ol' Bapts did actually clarify one matter, however.

"Sorry i m not gay!" he wrote in response to a follower asking if he was. Yeah. And that's probably the closest thing to a response we can expect from either.

The lovely Ms. Katy Perry will soon be making the jump from pop superstar to queen of 3D with her upcoming concert movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

The voluptuous, Grammy-winning artist is offering fans the chance to walk the red carpet with her when the film premieres this summer, to boot.

Check out a video of Katy promoting the “Golden Ticket” to the film below ...

From Paramount Insurge Pictures, the same studio that brought us Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, it's safe to say this film won't disappoint the faithful.

The studio, Perry and Twitter have combined forces to offer her legion of fans multiple opportunities to help shape the film as it is being put together, too.

That's even more exciting than our gallery of Katy Perry pictures ... or at least it's pretty close. It's a pretty awesome gallery we've compiled at THG.
