American Idol judge Katy Perry has well and truly divided the show's audience, with some fans calling for her to be booted off the show after pretending to be a cat on live TV.

The 'I Kissed A Girl' singer - who is joined on the panel by Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan - has been a mainstay on the ABC show since 2017.

But in recent months, Perry has come under fire for 'bullying' allegations amid some of her behaviour.

And now some viewers are still calling for her head, for trying to be a cat. Watch below:

Some thought her comments were 'mom shaming' and 'inappropriate'.

Sara Beth Liebe, recalling her audition in a now-deleted TikTok, said that Perry's dig was 'hurtful' and added that it was 'embarrassing' that it happened on TV.

Speaking to Nutsa Buzaladze, the singer said: "Nutsa, every time you take the stage it’s like you glitter bomb the stage.

"Listen, one thing that I would like to see from you is not one piece of glitter the next time. I know that is going to be hard."

More recently, the American Idol Instagram account uploaded a clip of Perry pretending to be a cat while dressed in leather pants and boots.

Luke Bryan called her 'Katy Purry' as Lionel Richie joked they had 'Catwoman with us'.

Perry, or Purry, was doing her best to look the part and kicked out her leg to put her foot on top of the table.

"I’m ready to prowl for talent," she joked.

Then she started clawing at Luke’s shoulder, adding: “That’s me pawing.”

Some viewers were not amused one bit.

"Can't stand her they need to get rid of her & Luke," wrote one person.

Others commented that Perry has 'lost her respect' and accused over of 'overdoing it'.

Notably, not everyone was so against the video.

"Cat woman is magnificent," one penned, as another added: "I love to ROAR."

A third penned: "I love you Katy, you perfect, beautiful, nice, humble, very good."

Fellow judge Bryan, came to her defence earlier this month and said: "You can’t be so safe in the moment that you’re so homogenized, you can’t ever go for a joke or go for a fun moment."

UNILAD has contacted Katy Perry's representatives for comment.
