Katy Perry took to Twitter to salute first responders, following a scary incident which saw her collapse on the set of American Idol due to a gas leak.
The ABC show was in the middle of filmingauditions in Sunriver, Oregon, last year when things took a dramatic turn, and the whole ordeal played out on Sunday night's new episode.
"Big shout out to all of our first responders around the country - thanks for risking your lives every day…and ? all night long ? #AmericanIdol ??," Perry captioned a video on Twitter, showing her embracing one first responder while exclaiming, "You saved me!"
It all started when the judges were preparing to hear from a new group of hopefuls, but started to sense that something might be wrong.
"Do you guys smell gas? It's pretty intense," Katy Perry wondered.
"We’re getting heavy propane," Luke Bryan agreed, speaking off camera to Idol producers.
"I have a slight headache from it," Perry added, standing up to leave the studio as production started evacuating the crew and contestants. "Oh, it's bad. It’s really bad."
The fire department and ambulances then arrived on the scene, and the judges remarked on how they could still smell gas from outside.
"This is not a joke, there really is a gas leak," Bryan confirmed, approaching the fire truck.
"I’m not feeling good," said Perry, as she tumbled to the ground from a crouched position.
This season of Idol has already been packed with intense moments, including an episode, in which Perry guided an Alabama garbage man named Douglas Kiker through his emotional audition, which ended up wowing the judges.
"For a man who has no idea what his voice can do, for a man who has no idea what key he's singing in, for a man who has no idea who the heck he can be, he's here to do one thing: He's trying to show his daughter that he's somebody," Richie said, as we walked up to Kiker to shake his hand.
