Backstage pictures of Katy Perry prior to American Idol surfaced on Twitter as she wore a stunning attire.

“American Idol” got heated Sunday night when a young contestant opened up during his audition about surviving a school shooting. Trey Louis, a 21-year-old mattress salesman from Santa Fe, Texas, impressed judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie by showing off his rugged voice on the country song “Stone” by Whiskey Myers.

After getting a standing ovation, he shared his story: He narrowly survived the 2018 shooting at Santa Fe High School in which 10 people died.

“A gunman walked into my school,” Louis said. “I was in art room one, and he shot up art room two before he made his way to art room one. Lost a lot of friends.”

Perry began to weep, burying her face in her hands, before exploding into an impassioned speech.

“Our country has (expletive) failed us!” she shouted, through tears. “This is not OK! You should be singing here because you love music! Not because you had to go through that (expletive). You didn’t have to lose… friends. I hope that you remind people that we have to change, because, you know what? I’m scared too.” The judges huddled with Louis and all voted yes, sending him through to Hollywood.
