The singer was floating above the concertgoers at Bridgestone Arena while she was sitting on a platform that was created to look like Saturn.
When the planet rig eventually began it's slow descent, the Roulette singer realized she'd have to stagedive to get off of it otherwise it would crush the Tennessee crowd.
Perry (born Katheryn Hudson) - who had in-ear monitor - candidly revealed how her team were making a "whole big deal" of the technical difficulty. Should I just sing another song? "I love this so much".
(Radio.com) Katy Perry found herself lost in space at a gig in Nashville this week (Oct. 18).
While in the air, she brainstormed how to pass time.
The singer had just finished performing "Thinking of You", at which point she was supposed to descend back to the stage of the Bridgestone Arena.
Perry will take her next Witness: The Tour show to Missouri's Scottrade Center in St. Louis on Sunday night.
She told Entertainment Tonight that being single allows her to balance her world tour with Idol. Once it had gotten as close to the crowd as it could without bumping into audience members, Perry dove off the planet and crowd-surfed to safety.
