KATY Perry had to awkwardly shut down fellow American Idol judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie when she was asked if they were invited to her upcoming wedding to Orlando Bloom.

The famous trio appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the newest season of the ABC singing competition show when the Never Really Over singer, 35, spilled the tea on her tight guest list.

The late night host, 52, noted pop star Katy had recently gotten engaged to actor Orlando, 43, the last time she appeared on the show when he asked if the Hello singer, 70, and the country hitmaker, 43, made the invite cut-off.

The current pink-haired beauty tried to play it coy and laughed when she told Jimmy she “can’t afford them” before she attempted to change the subject.

He continued to press the issue when he asked again: “Will these guys be expected to sing at your wedding?”

Things began to get even more awkward when the Teenage Dream songstress cringed and sank down into the couch: “Like I said I can’t afford them.

“Look, they have a lot of work to do while I’m out getting married… again!”

In case there was any confusion, the TV funny man made it clear: “So this is your way of saying they’re actually not invited to the wedding?”

“It’s going to be a small wedding,” the Grammy nominee uncomfortably said to her co-stars.

The Knockin’ Boots crooner even admitted he and Lionel had been “dropping hints” to be invited before Katy “solidified” the letdown on the talk show.

To add more sting to the burn, the Dark Horse singer shared: “Let’s just say they’re on the B-list.”

The Pirates of the Caribbean star popped the question to his now-fiancé on Valentine’s Day 2019 after dating off-and-on for three years.

They each broke the news on Instagram with the same close-up shot of Katy’s massive floral diamond engagement ring.

She wrote “full bloom” alongside her photo while the Lord of the Rings actor captioned his “lifetimes.”

Katy also revealed to Jimmy she booked the ceremony venue just five days after the engagement but has not publicly said when the wedding date will be.

Orlando was previously married to supermodel Mirada Kerr, 36, but divorced in late 2013 and share nine-year-old son Flynn together.

The Teenage Dream vocalist married British comedian Russell Brand, 44, in a traditional Hindu ceremony in India.

On December 30, 2011, Russell filed for divorce – which was finalized the following year – citing irreconcilable differences.

The superstar panel of judges joined the reboot of the singing mega-hit show back in 2018 and have continued to sign on in the following two seasons since.

The 18th season of American Idol – the third since the show changed networks – is set to premiere February 16th on ABC at 8pm EST.
