Katy Perry is keeping "social distance," amid the spread of the Coronavirus. The singer who recently announced that she's pregnant is reported to be in lockdown currently.


The most recent episode of "American Idol" features one of the last auditions for the show's 18th season, and it got a new feel for the singing competition series. 

Three of the show's judges, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, headed offshore to give their verdict on a contestant, Meghan Knight.

The judges listened to the singer's guitar-accompanied rendition on a yacht and gave the show's very first "boat-vote," which turned out to be a "Golden Ticket" for Knight.

Katy Perry later took to Twitter to share a video clip from moments after the audition where she mimics the famous "Jack and Rose" pose from the 1997 film, "Titanic."


In the clip, the 35-year-old singer was held by the waist by Bryan, who was held too by Richie, as the three gave their rendition of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." 

Making a light-hearted reference to the COVID-19 spread, Perry wrote in the tweet, "This was before the 6-foot social distance rule...sometimes I wish that always applied between [Luke Bryan], [Lionel Richie] and I."

The "Wide Awake" crooner had announced earlier this month that she's pregnant. Perry revealed alongside Bryan and Richie in a special that she's six months pregnant, with her fiance, Orlando Bloom, being the father.

Katy expressed her joy as she opened up that she can't wait to watch her fellow judges play a role in her kid's life. Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie took to their social media pages to congratulate Perry and Bloom on their forthcoming baby.


Due to her delicate condition, amid the spread of the Coronavirus, the singer is reported to be in lockdown.

Country artist, Luke Bryan tweeted the hilarious moment on the yacht as he shared a picture of the "Titanic" couple doing the pose, but with the faces of the three judges photoshopped into the picture. 

He wrote, "Near, far, wherever you are, #American Idol will find you." Lionel Richie also tweeted a clip from the legendary moment and welcomed the contestant, Meghan, to the singing competition show.
