“Extra’s” Jenn Lahmers caught up with “American Idol” judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie to talk about last night’s episode and the upcoming mega-finale showdown next week.

Lionel also commented on front-runner Caleb Kennedy, who dropped out after a video surfaced online showing him with someone wearing a Klan-like hood.

Richie said, “It was just an unfortunate situation and I think no matter what, we have to go with ABC because that’s what it’s all about.”

“American Idol” airs at 8 p.m. Sundays on ABC.
