'A pizza my heart will always be on the #Idol stage,' Perry captioned the video on Instagram.

'I'm a fan, but you should never do that to anyone,' wrote another. 'Wrong doing, sorry.'

'This is bad. Shouldn’t throw food just like that,' read one comment.

Other fans noticed the clip was a nod to her 2022 appearance at a Las Vegas nightclub, where she infamously flung slices of pizza into the crowd on paper plates like a frisbee. 

'It's an inside joke with her fans, you people are so soft,' someone wrote, as another added, 'Mom feeding her babies.'

'You are the champion in the Olympics in the pizza throw category,' one follower praised her.

'Lol I am sure someone picked up and had a delicious dinner!!! Forget the haters… [You're] Freaking Katy Perry!!!' another commented.

Some fans used the opportunity to press her for her next album. 'Now it's time to feed us with NEW MUSIC,' wrote one follower.

Perry donned a strapless gold metal breastplate with a sculpted floral embellishment, paired with a white skirt.

The Teenage Dream artist was clearly emotional as she stepped onto the stage with fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, as well as host Ryan Seacrest.

'Katy is a mess,' said Bryan, 47.    

She then performed her 2020 song 'What Makes a Woman' as a duet with finalist Jack Blocker, donning giant dress printed with the faces of former contestants she worked with on the show.

Blocker ultimately came in third, with Will Moseley as runner-up and Abi Carter winning season 22.

Perry previously announced she's leaving American Idol after seven seasons ahead of a 'very exciting year.' 

'I think this probably will be my last show, my last season for Idol,' she said on Jimmy Kimmel Live at the time. 'I mean, I love Idol so much.

'It's connected me with, like, the heart of America, but I feel like I need to go out and feel that pulse,' added Perry.

She is rumored to be working on new music, which is said to be the 'biggest musical comeback since Mariah Carey with The Emancipation of Mimi.'

After releasing her sixth studio album Smile in 2020, Perry sold her entire music catalog for $225 million in September.

Meanwhile, Perry fans have made '#JUSTICEFORKATYPERRY' trend and pushed her previous work up the charts after a music critic admitted to unfairly trashing her.
