The smell starts to affect Perry while the judges are forced to stop the show’s auditions and everyone is asked top evacuate the building.

“I have a slight headache from it,” Perry says. “Oh it’s bad. It’s really bad.”

“I need everyone to get up and follow me as quickly as possible,” a crew member says before sirens in the building go off.

“Wow, you can smell it, right? Holy crap!” Richie says as the firefighters show up.

Once everyone is outside, including the performers waiting to audition, Perry says, “I’m not feeling good.”

The Dark Horse singer tips over and falls to the ground in the clip but it doesn’t show whether Perry was treated on scene or not.
