She may be several months pregnant, but that didn’t stop Katy Perry from giving an incredible performance on the season 18 finale of American Idol. Katy took a break from judging during the finale to sing her new song, “Daisies,” which was just released on May 15. This was the first time she ever performed the track publicly, and she killed it! Of course, even while performing from her home, Katy also looked amazing. She had her baby bump on display while wearing a pink mini dress.
Katy announced her pregnancy by debuting her baby bump in her music video for “Never Worn White” in March. The exciting news came about one year after she and the baby’s father, Orlando Bloom, got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2019. The couple’s wedding plans have been derailed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but at least they still have the birth of their little girl to look forward to! This is the singer’s first child, although Orlando already has a nine-year-old son with his ex, Miranda Kerr. The baby is due this summer.
Katy and the rest of the American Idol judges, contestants and crew have been filming the show from their homes for the last several weeks amidst the coronavirus. Every episode, Katy has gone above and beyond with her style choices. For the first two virtual episodes, she dressed as a hand sanitizer bottle and roll of toilet paper. Then, she channeled Dumbo’s mom from the classic Disney movie for Disney week on May 10.
