Where do I?-- Do I?-- Oh wow! Hi, everybody! Bryan: Here we go. Ritchie: My god. Bryan: Howdy! Perry: I love you so much! Contestant: I love you too, wow it's-- What's your name?
witha 'C' and you're Katy
witha K, and I already think this friendship is off to a great start. Ritchie: I love that. Perry: Love it. Bryan: CAFFEINE! I don't drink coffee or any caffeine. This is just pure, like, adrenaline. Like, let's- let's hit it, let's go. Okay, pull
your hat back just a little bit more. How 'bout I throw it to the side. Ritchie: There you go. Perry: Put it down there so we can put some money in it. Alright. You guys ready? Bryan: Oh yeah. I have a question, um, do you write your own
songs-- Yeah! -- to show us? Yeah! Do you wanna hear 21st Century Machine? Ritchie: Yeah. Perry: 21st Century Machine? It's kinda about how media affected me when I was an impressionable young child and kinda like my bitterness to it but-- You also
sound like a gosh-darn genius. Here's the intro. People on the airwaves always preach who I should be. How to dress, how to talk, maybe, how to breathe. Wicked artists use their limber fingers to paint pictures of what young girls are to aspire to be. I'm not alive if I'm not on illegal weed, I'm not in love
without a man sitting next to me. Someone tell me if this is all an illusion, or if i'm just a cog, in the 21st century machine. It's the place to be. In the
21st century machine. Shed light and live precariously~ Yeah, okay! That is SUCH a good
song. You're a spectacular
songwriter. I love where your mind's at. I think-- man, let's just, comments? Yes, Katy's saying it. You are interesting and brilliant beyond your years. Perry: Yeah. Ritchie: I love your-- the sound of your voice. Every once in a while, you know, a, uh, a martian lands, and we happen to see the martian. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to see you, alright.

withyour brain and your writing is, Crazy great, okay? So that's my, that's my comment. Perry: Well let's, let's take a vote. Bryan: Do you have a cellphone, or-- Yeah! I have a ce-- --you have Instagram and all the... Yeah. Do you read all that garbage? Yeah, yup. Perry: She scrolls. Ritchie: She scrolls, yeah. I'm saying YES, Bryan: but you don't go and read anything, what people say about you, 'cause I don't want the outside
world to mess
withyour beautiful brain. Right, right. She's so strong. She- she knows it. Katy: What's your answer? I am actually pleased to say for my first time out, Yes. Absolutely. Perry: I think your point of view is very fresh, and necessary. You understand what it means to be a female, this day and age, and I love that. So you're going to Hollywood! Bryan: Don't trip! Ritchie: Aw, sweetheart, aw, so good . Perry: I love you, OH MY GOSH, I LOVE you. Bryan: Can
you believe the genius? Perry: She's hilarious. Perry: She's very smart.

Catie: Thank you so much! How does that feel to cuddle that, hug that, be
withthat golden ticket? It's like my child, I just wanna-- Seacrest: You just wanna cradle it?
