Katy Perry is precious in pastel pink as she rings in the third season of American Idol at the show’s premiere party in Hollywood

American Idol returns to ABC on Sunday after the judges spent months scouring the country for season three’s contestant roster.

And Katy Perry looked ready to celebrate when she hit the blue carpet with fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan for the popular talent search show’s premiere party in Hollywood on Wednesday evening.

Perry put on an exceptionally leggy display in an iridescent pink mini-dress for the American Idol soiree, while her co-stars Richie and Bryan kept their ensembles on the casual side.

Perry’s soft pink dress featured an asymmetrical polka dot pattern, which was outlined in shimmering silver thread.

Her curves were further accentuated by the dress’ tie strap belt which gave her waist a flattering cinch.

Her newly signature blonde locks were styled in cohesive finger waves, which beautifully framed the singer’s oval shaped face.

Danging from Perry’s ears were a pair of geometric drop earrings that coordinated with her iridescent dress.
