Katy Perry handles wardrobe malfunction like a pro

Olivia Morris

What was meant to be a bit of fun for Katy Perry, her fellow American Idol judges and a contestant turned into a slight wardrobe mishap for the singer during a recent auditions episode.

The auditioner, Michelle, encouraged Katy and other judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie to get up and dance.

But when it came down to twerking, it didn't go quite so well for Katy.

As can be seen in the video above as she was dancing, the 33-year-old fell over with her dress unfortunately riding up.

The quick-thinking singer clearly knew what to do in that situation, gracefully posing as she fell over, keeping cool as a cucumber.
