“American Idol” had quite a scare!
The singing competition paused a round of Season 3 auditions when judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie noticed a strong propane smell on set and Katy fell to the ground.
A video shows the trio getting evacuated along with the crew and contestants before EMTs arrive.
There is a scramble to evacuate and once outside, Perry appears to be overcome.
‘I’m not feeling good,‘ she said before falling to the ground.
“Do you guys smell gas? It’s pretty intense,” says Perry in the clip.
“We’re getting heavy propane,” answers Bryan to the Idol producers.
However, propane is odorless, so nobody ever smells propane. Maybe they have smelled an odorant added to propane… But I wouldn’t give it the smell of rotten eggs… Would you?
But, as you know, another gas called hydrogen sulfide smells like rotten eggs at lower concentration.
