American Idol Producers Retroactively Censor Katy Perry

When Katy Perry showed up on American Idol last week, she was wearing a glittery cape that stumped for Adam Lambert. However, if you purchase Idol via iTunes for posterity's sake, you'll notice that Lambert's name has been digitally erased from Perry's cape. However, in an unfortunate twist for music fans everywhere, producers apparently forgot to excise Perry's screechy live vocals. [TMZ]
