'Idol' contestant surprises mom with call from Katy Perry and Lionel Richie

Jonny Brenns sings original song

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have been feuding for years and days ago, the "Firework" singer found herself face to face with a Swiftie.

Bryan asked an auditioning contestant who he looks up to and he said, "I'm sorry for this Katy: Taylor Swift". "I love Taylor Swift", he explained, according to a March 18 report by Hollywood Life.

Taylor and Katy had had a friendly relationship right up into 2014, when Taylor revealed her song Bad Blood was about another woman in the music industry who she was now "straight-up enemies" with. At this point, we don't know if it's for publicity or if they truly just despise one another.

One of the most memorable auditions so far on American Idol's reboot season was from singer-songwriter Effie Passero, who performed her original song "Troubled Mind" for the judges.

USA trade groups warn against higher tariffs
Trump recently announced sweeping tariffs of 25 percent on imports of steel and 10 percent on aluminum. Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation and the Information Technology Industry Council.

Katy replied: "You don't have to be sorry".

Wearing Daisy Duke cut-offs and holding a Starbucks drink, she sings a medley of Mariah Carey's "Emotions" (yes, she hits the high notes ) and Demo Lovato's "Stone Cold". And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational - you would not believe how much I hate conflict. "It's awkward, and I don't like it". This isn't the first time that Katy has spoken about her support of Taylor's songwriting, and it's possible that she genuinely meant what she said. And during a Carpool Karaoke segment with late night host James Corden, she even admitted that the feud with Swift was "about backing dancers". She kept silent while Perry went on a press tour for "Swish Swish" and her album "Witness". "I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn't speak to me". Fans suspected that Taylor's Bad Blood video was aimed at Katy and that Katy's Swish Swish lyrics were about Taylor.

American Idol airs on Sundays and Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
