The American Idol auditions have always been known for quirky contestants and the unique ways aspiring singers attempt to snag a Golden Ticket to the Hollywood round.
On the next new episode of the competition series airing Wednesday (March 6), Kason Lester starts his audition off on a sweet note, delivering a gift basket full of treats from his family’s strawberry farm to the judges, and Billboard has an exclusive preview above.
“You know they call me Straw-Perry?” Katy Perry jokes, before she and Lionel Richie munch on some.
“Do I need to call your assistant for the removal of the goodie bag?” Luke Bryan asks, as Perry shakes her head no.
Catch Lester’s full audition and more on the next episode of American Idol, airing Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
