King Charles III and Queen Camilla, on Sunday, surprised fans and audience of the United States talent show, ‘American Idol’, when they appeared on the live stream of the show.
Earlier, the judges of the show, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry, had performed at the coronation concert of the monarch in the United Kingdom.
Ed Sheeran and Alanis Morissette served as guest judges during the episode in place of Perry and Richie.
Richie, 73, while announcing the presence of King Charles, said to the audience, “What a party, it was unbelievable. We’re trying to figure out what can we do to bring something different to the show, so I have a surprise.”
Perry then appeared shocked when the king and queen wandered into the shot, with the king joking: “I just wanted to check how long you’ll be using this room for.”
He added to say, “Thank you so much for your brilliant performance, it’s a pleasure to have you both here. It’s a great treat to have you both here.” The queen said of their performance: “Fantastic, absolutely fantastic.”
Perry, 38, who executed a couple of curtsies, asked if they were making too much noise. And Richie said: “We understand there’s a party … you’re throwing the party right next door.” and the king responded: “Ah you’ve heard about that. We better take you to that, but you are busy with all these other things.” Richie said: “As soon as we finish, we’re coming to the party.”
