The “Last Friday Night” singer, who has appeared on the program for the past six seasons, has received criticism for remarks she has made to participants several times in recent months.

Initially, she was accused with “mom-shaming” Sara Beth Liebe after making a joke about how the 25-year-old mother of three had been “laying on the table too much.”

Then, in April, when Perry criticized contender Nutsa Buzaladze’s attire, the audience booed her.

“Nutsa, every time you take the stage it’s like you glitter bomb the stage,” she said. “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.”
