Perry, 35, is expecting her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43. In the footage she shared on social media, the singer was seen sitting next to fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

As the Grammy Award nominee watched a contestant walk away she noted: “I’m the toughest [expletive].” She then confidently added: I’m gonna be a good mom. My kids are always gonna get it straight.”

Bloom is already a parent as he shares his son, Flynn, 9, with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr. In March, the musician tweeted how relieved she was that she didn’t “have to suck it in anymore,” referring to her baby bump.

Debuting her baby bump

The California native initially debuted her baby bump last month in the music video for the song “Never Worn White.” She also shared that she was happy to not have to carry a “big purse” around to hide her growing stomach.

Perry also confessed that her baby was planned and not a mistake. She had actually wished for a baby girl before she confirmed that she was getting her wish fulfilled.

According to a source this month, the couple “are both so excited about having a baby.” The insider added: “They love that they have this amazing, positive thing to focus on right now. It’s such a happy distraction for them.”

The musician revealed the news that she was having a girl by sharing a cute photo of Bloom. Taking to Instagram, the “Firework” singer announced their baby’s sex with a photo of her fiancé covered in pink-hued cream.

Brownlee walks off stage

She suddenly walked off stage before falling to the ground backstage. On-site medical personnel attended to Brownlee, and ambulances were called as she began to have a seizure.

Singer reveals medical diagnosis

It was later discovered that the up and coming singer had been diagnosed with vasovagal syncope in the seventh grade. Brownlee explained that it was a heart condition that caused her “to react to stress differently than other people, and it could cause a seizure."

After coming back a few hours later to perform, Perry was moved to tears as Brownlee made her way off the stage.
