American Idol is gearing up for another season and the trio of judges, including Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, are in the thick of auditions, more specifically at the Milwaukee Art Museum. However, Perry's new Instagram post caused traction for another reason besides singing hopefuls as she took a tumble on roller skates.

On Wednesday (October 9), Perry shared a brief clip while skating with her fellow Idol judges in Milwaukee. "Welp, guess you’ll just have to tune back into @AmericanIdol next year to see if any of us kept our jobs @lukebryan@lionelrichie ammiright?" she captioned the post, which sees her break into a remix of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" redubbed "I Wanna Skate With Somebody" after she falls on the ground. To make her feel a bit better, Richie skates over to her, holding a cheesehead, as Bryan slides by her side.

Still, skating might not be Perry's thing as another clip depicts her slowly rolling towards her film crew and almost falling on one of the production members.

Season 10 of Idol was also filmed at the Milwaukee Art Museum, where Scott McCreery performed for then-judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, before earning the title as season champ in 2011.
