Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie attend ABC's "American Idol" Finale on May 21, 2018 in Los Angeles. 

The new season of American Idol is around the corner, and an Oct. 3 behind-the-scenes teaser (via PEOPLE) shows Katy Perry strut by fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie in an airport hangar.

The teaser shows a cameramen filming the three judges, donned in pilot gear for a promo shoot. Richie and Bryan watch as Perry walks between them with hands on her hips. "Ready boys?" she asks, throwing her head back to laugh.

“We just got upstaged,” jokes the 42-year-old country star. “Yeah, we did,” Richie replies. “Yeah, we did.”

American Idol’s Season 17 auditions began online May 5 and will continue through Nov. 5. While the show's release date is yet to be announced, it is scheduled for ABC’s 2018-2019 television season.
