PREGNANT Katy Perry put her growing baby bump on full display during the American Idol finale on Sunday night.

The 35-year-old pop star showed off her body on the last episode of the ABC singing competition as she sang her latest hit Daisies for the first time.

Dressed in a puffy pink dress, the Never Worn White singer danced around barefoot as the background continued to digitally transitioned.

During the performance, the visuals surrounding Katy changed from an American Idol stage to a cartoon-like room.

The Idol judge interacted with the animations as she stepped into a falling frame and grabbed a yellow 2-D chair.

“Start on the American Idol stage, end up in a whole new world thanks to brand new technology that’s never been seen before on TV,” she wrote alongside the Instagram clip.

The mom-to-be represented the new single in her Sunday night ensemble wearing a daisy printed floral dress.

Katy decided to go more causal after she faced backlash in the past for her controversial outfits.

“I didn’t wear a costume on Idol tonight because I figured it was time to be a little normal.

“And I was running out of dumb ideas. And it’s getting too hot,” she said on Facebook Live before the show aired.

“I’m dressing like daisy-themed, because my new song, Daisies, is out, so I guess it’s a little themed.

“But I’m not, like, wearing a daisy on my face. Although, don’t think I won’t do that at some point in the future,” she continued.

The Santa Barbara native sparked controversy for dressing up as a bottle of hand sanitizer during the first remote show during the coronavirus pandemic.

She wore a costume that read “American Idol Instant Music Sanitizer” in Purell’s font and design.

The outfit choice immediately sparked online backlash, with some fans slamming the star for turning the global pandemic into a “joke.”

“Like, you’re already Katy Perry…you don’t need to steal more focus from the singers by dressing like a frat’s Halloween party reject.

“Show the young talent some f**king respect.” one person tweeted.

Another fired off: “Someone please tell @katyperry to lose the costume on @AmericanIdol. She’s turning this into a joke.”

The mom-to-be is expecting a baby girl with fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43, and is due later this Summer.

On April 4, the proud parents revealed they are having a baby girl – who will reportedly be named after Katy’s late grandmother Ann Pearl Hudson.

The Dark Horse songstress has been open about her struggle with mental health while pregnant amid the COVID-19 health crisis.

Katy tweeted last week that she has experienced “waves of depression” in quarantine.

The singer has been with her baby daddy on-and-off since 2016 and previously credited him to “saving” her during hardships.
