Katy Perry wears form-fitting Elastigirl costume while celebrating Disney Night on ABC’s American Idol
Katy Perry wore a form-fitting Elastigirl costume while celebrating Disney Night on Sunday’s episode of American Idol on ABC.
The 38-year-old pop superstar stepped out after missing last week’s episode in the iconic red and black family superhero costume from the 2004 Pixar film The Incredibles and its 2018 sequel Incredibles 2.
Katy donned a 1960s retro-styled red wig to get into the character of Ms. Incredible and her accurate costume also included a black eye mask.
She revealed her Disney Night costume as she took the stage with fellow judges Lionel Richie, 73, and Luke Bryan, 46, at the start of the two-hour live show.
Katy began serving as a judge on American Idol in 2018 during season 16, the first on ABC after 15 years of broadcasting on Fox.

American Idol has held a Disney Night since moving to ABC.
The Incredibles is produced by Pixar Animation Studios, a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studios since 2006.
Helen Parr, aka Elastigirl and Mrs. Incredible, is voiced by Holly Hunter, 65, in The Incredibles and its sequels. She is married to Bob Parr, aka Mr. Incredible, and they are the parents of Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack.
Katy told Wé Ani, 23, on the Disney Night episode after her first performance that she was “incredible.”
“Thank you, Ms. Incredible,” Wé told her as he stood next to host Ryan Seacrest, 48.
Wé and her mother Jackie also teamed up with a costumed Ms. Incredible as the mother-daughter duo visited Disneyland in Anaheim, California ahead of Disney Night.
The Disney Night episode featured performances by the top five remaining contestants.
In addition to Katy being in costume, the Disney Night episode featured an appearance by Halle Bailey, 23, singing Part Of Your World from her upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid.

The five finalists also enjoyed spending time at Disneyland with family and rehearsing with Disney star Sofia Carson, 30.
Katy fell off her chair last season wearing an Ariel costume from The Little Mermaid on Disney Night.
She had trouble walking in the stiff costume and was helped by fellow judges Lionel and Luke and host Ryan as she took her middle seat at the judges’ table.
They wheeled Katy in with a dolly and helped the singer into her chair, but she fell out of her chair as Ryan introduced the first contestant.
Disney Night was delayed this season due to judges Katy and Lionel traveling to England to perform at the recent coronation of King Charles III.
