KATY Perry seemed to be in a great mood while filming out in Hawaii for American Idol.
Paparazzi captured photos of the Hot N Cold singer, 39, beside Lionel, 74, and Luke, 47, in the middle of taping.
Katy was in full glam with her jet-black hair styled into her signature middle part, sporting a strapless lime-green, body-hugging dress.
In one photo, she appeared to be hiding behind Lionel, who was waving toward the cameras.
Photographers managed to score some shots of the award-winning songstress smiling widely when she had turned her head enough.

Although Katy seems happy to be judging Idol again, there are some fans who aren’t happy she’s returning.
She received backlash over the weekend after announcing the Idol season premiere on her social media.
The TV personality shared a promotional graphic on her Instagram, a sketched drawing of her standing on the beach in Santa Barbara, California.
In the artwork, the mother of one stood with her hand on her hip while wearing a black, white, and brown floor-length dress.

Katy’s long dark hair was styled in beachy waves and she wore full glam makeup.
A second photo showed the singer standing with her Idol co-stars, Ryan Seacrest, 49, Lionel, and Luke.
Words on the screen read, “Heading back to where it all began; American Idol.”
Katy captioned her post, “OMG YER FINALLY GONNA GET OUR ORIGIN STORIES.
“Come visit @lukebryan@lionelrichie and my hometowns. The @americanidol journey begins on Feb 18th with the season premiere at 8/7c on ABC and Stream on Hulu!”
