Katy Perry is setting the recording straight on how to correctly sing “Firework."
The American Idol judge posted a clip from Sunday’s episode on Instagram, where she explains common misconceptions about the 2010 smash hit. The video starts with fellow Idol judge Luke Bryan started jumping and singing one of the lyrics from the song. Perry decides to cut him off, saying, “It's not ‘up, up, up’ and it's not ‘ah, ah, ah.’”
The California Gurls singer says the real lyrics are, “Awe, awe, awe.” Then, she looks straight into the camera and tells viewers another very important message: “It’s not ‘Fireworks,’ It’s ‘Firework.’”
