Tension between the two goes back to 2014 when Taylor accused Katy of stealing her backup dancers, which is believed to be the inspo behind Bad Blood. And while there has been talk of peace in the past, a new episode of American Idol has some on social media speculating that the feud is far from over.
But even if they won't be BFFs in the future, Katy insisted to the contestant that she remains a huge fan of Swift as an artist: "Oh, you don't have to be sorry", she replied.
"I love her, and I want the best for her", Perry added. Most contestants arrive on Idol as a work in progress, but as you can tell by watching the above video, Amelia Hammer Harris already looks like the complete package. "I love her, as a songwriter, as well". While some couldn't help but laugh at the moment, calling it "awkward", others were left "screaming" over the interaction.
American Idol 2018 heads back to Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, and NY tonight on ABC as the three judges continue their search for the next victor of American Idol armed with their stack of Golden Tickets.
For the uninitiated, the beef between Perry and Swift started way back in 2013 during the latter's Red tour. Perry then tweeted, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing..." about Swift. I think it's actually like, I think it's time.
Perry, who is also a judge on the show, seemed fine with it. "We've had our differences but I just continue to say, 'God bless her on her journey". Last year, Perry reportedly brought up the drama with Swift while promoting her Witness album.
