'American Idol': Katy Perry Saves Contestant From Elimination After Covering One of Her Hit Songs

Following American Idol's first live show on Sunday, contestant Alyssa Raghu found herself on the edge of elimination without enough votes to guarantee a spot in the Top 10.

Which meant that the 17-year-old Idol hopeful had to pull off something big, splashy and amazing for her performance on Monday if she wanted to get a save. 

So, she decided on a risky gamble and performed one of Katy Perry's own songs, "The One That Got Away," right in front of her -- and she nailed it!

Belting out a slower, more soulful rendition of the popular track, Raghu stunned Perry and her fellow judges, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie, and earned tremendous praise from the Witness artist.

"First of all, how dare you!" Perry deadpanned. "How dare you come out and sing that song 100 times better than me."
