Meet The 15-Yr-Old Indian Girl Who Impressed Katy Perry On American Idol

Songstress Katy Perry and India seem to have some perplexing connection. Ex-Husband Russel Brand had proposed to Katy Perry in front of the Taj Mahal in 2009, they had their wedding ceremony in Ranthambore, Rajasthan in October 2010. Now while we know their marriage did not last long, however, we can say that Katy Perry's connection with India is still rock solid. 

In the most recent updates from American reality singing show, American Idol, a 15-year-old girl, of Indian-origin, named Alyssa Raghunandan has made Katy Perry a big fan of hers with her lovely voice. Alyssa, surely felt like she was on cloud nine when she got all praises from the judges of American Idol for her performance.

"I full-body felt what you were singing, I am a believer in you. You’re top 10," said Perry.

Alyssa went on to say that it's been her father who has taken care of her and supported her singing career since her parents had a divorce.
