“Extra” caught up with Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Ryan Seacrest as they promoted the new season of “American Idol” in Hawaii.

While things can get “heated” about the contestants, Katy, Luke and Lionel are still very close! Ryan shared, “These three judges are probably the closest that we’ve ever had.”

Katy added, “When the cameras shut off, we’re still the same.”

“American Idol” premieres March 3 on ABC.
