Katy, 36, brought some comedy to the show when she admitted to her two co-judges, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, that she forgot to wear deodorant.
“Oh shoot I forgot to wear deodorant,” she revealed, as the other judges moaned in disapproval.
She continued: “You know how it goes. All the moms that are watching right now, you know exactly how it goes.
“While I was pregnant I was sharp as a tack and now I’m like weeee! I feel like I’m a little drunk, that’s where I’m at!”

The TV personality has been very honest about her post-baby journey, keeping it real about using Spanx to hide her bump.
Personal trainer Neema Sempebwa spoke to The Sun spoke about Katy’s portrayal of the process, saying: “It’s so refreshing to see real pictures of celebrities.
“When I saw the pictures of Katy Perry it brought a smile to my face – she looks so happy.

“She’s never tried to filter anything on Instagram, she’s just showcasing what her motherhood journey is like – it’s different for everyone.”
Katy has shared hilarious photos and videos of her body post-baby, including a snap of her in just her undergarments while preparing to pump milk.
“What? You mean you don’t lose the belly as soon as the baby is born??? – nope! You don’t,” she insured the public.
The singer also shared a TikTok showing off her Spanx that she uses as her secret weapon until her pre-baby body returns.

Neema also explained the concept of how women’s bodies are portrayed in the media: “I think there’s a lot of pressure in the media for celebrities and non-celebrities to look a certain way after you’ve had a baby – almost like trying to erase all evidence that you’ve had a child.
“There are some people whose bodies will genetically go back to being slim after they’ve had babies, so I’m never going to knock them, that might just be the way their bodies are.
“But I think the majority of women who are mothers will probably relate to a picture like the recent ones of Katy Perry more than the opposite – it almost gives them a sigh of relief.”
Katy spoke out about the first six weeks after giving birth, confessing that the time was “a roller coaster.”

She said her daughter was the ‘greatest gift of all’[/caption]
“I had my fifth album coming out… You know, every other album cycle, there’d be some kind of celebration or party or dinner, whatever.”
“This time I was giving birth to the greatest gift of all for me, and then my album came out the next day, and I was in the hospital, and I could not wipe my own butt.”
“Having a baby is exhausting, you have to fit that in around everything else that you’re doing,” she continued.

“In the first year, especially when you’re a first-time mum and just trying to understand how to be this person – because it’s not just a child that’s been born, it’s a mother too – it’s exhausting.
“I don’t believe in getting your body back to where it was – back, to me, is regressing. Let’s work forwards and get stronger and fitter and healthier.”
