Katy Perry and Kanye West Get Alien for 'E.T' on 'American Idol (VIDEO)

Katy Perry, 'American Idol'You weren't fooling anyone Ryan Seacrest by pretending you were backstage with Jacob and Stefano after Katy Perry and Kanye West's performance of 'E.T.' We've seen enough of these 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) to know a pre-recorded segment when we see it.

Or how about the fact that the audience was deathly quiet when they cut to the trio backstage. They were just cheering raucously at the conclusion of Perry's memorable performance, as well as West's mid-song appearance.

When the number began with a clip of West rapping from the 'E.T.' video, we weren't sure if he was going to be on hand, but he showed up later to bring his signature style to the hit single.

Rocking a unique style of her own was Perry herself. While she wasn't decked out nearly as "alien" as in the music video for the single, she and her backing dancers certainly had plenty of visual flair.

In fact, Perry's performance factor was something the contestants would be good to pay attention to. She's not a great dancer, and in fact settled for being carted around the stage on a strange wheeled platform, but she knows how to keep her performances interesting and engaging.

Katie looked like a Lady GaGA want a be. Not and never will be. She needs to rethink her act.

The audience was dead silence and they quickly switched to ryan seacrest because katy perry was lip syncing. That was obvious. American idol didn't pretape anything, they just had to make due with the fact that katy perrty came out and put on a horrible show w/ lip syncing. Thats why no one talked to her after the performance, which they do with every star that comes on the show. Rewatch the video and pay attention.

I agree, it was horrible and she only half heartedly lip synched it too.

Why do you allow Katie Perry to do anything, is this your answer to keep her from being un-employed? She brings absolutely nothing to anything, never has, never will! I watched Lady Ga-Ga's " Born this way", she is very entertaining, smart, and always doing something new, how can you not like her? Katie on the other hand, there is more talent on " American Idol"! As far as putting "rap" in every song, ever made, it's hit and miss, but the worst is in country music!

Why do so many talented female singers think they need a "rapper" mixed into their recordings? It adds absolutely nothing. Katy Perry can stand on her own.

i like the song...but just a little advice for future AI performances...if you have to edit out half the words of a song for the performance...its probably not the best choice...

I thought the performance strange and the song boring and if I would have known Kanye was going to be on I wouldn't have watched at all. If she is trying to compete with Lady GaGa shame on her, Lady GaGa has sold her soul to the devil. A disgrace to performers a bad influence on youth.

They could form a group. Maybe call it "Rap & Crap"?

Interesting contrast - Katy Perry needs Lady Gaga props to give a performance of a pretty boring song. Speaks to the talent of the idols performing without all the jazz on just their own talent!

As for being taped - yes, something felt off, that's for sure.
