Katy Perry proves she’ll perform “Unconditionally,” even if she suffers a serious wardrobe malfunction.

While belting out “Teenage Dream” on Monday night’s episode of “American Idol,” the pop star split her pants in spectacular fashion.

Fittingly, she was singing about her “skintight jeans” when her red leather trousers ripped open.

“They busted,” fellow judge Luke Bryan joked, as Perry came up with a quick fix for her sartorial stumble.

“Can I get some tape?” she asked the crew.

Several strategically placed strips of bright yellow gaffer tape later, Perry’s pants were (almost) as good as new.

She joked about the mishap on Instagram and Twitter as the episode started, teasing, “ima get ur heart racing in my skin-tight jeans on #americanidol tonight tune in now for a RIPPING good time.”

This wasn’t her first wardrobe malfunction on the reality show. During her first season in 2018, she similarly split her pants and asked the crew to “tape my butt.”

Ahead of her latest side- (or, rather, seam-) splitting moment, Perry took to Instagram to show off her outfit, which included a vintage leopard-print Just Cavalli corset top, zebra-striped Bottega Veneta sandals and Ben-Amun jewelry in addition to her lace-up Drome pants.

It’s no surprise Perry took the onscreen style slip in stride — as she recently told Page Six Style, “I take fashion risks all the time, but I never have any regrets.”
