Katy, Luke and Lionel will once again sit through the usual parade of hopefuls - from the super talented to the just plain terrible and it turns out that the job of breaking the bad news often falls to Richie, who told Kimmel he tries to temper the criticism with a little positive reinforcement.

As Kimmel later questioned her on whether she'd have the pair there as performers, she insisted: "Like I said, I can't afford them". I'm like, I'm kinda chill. But I am one of those girls where I got engaged February 14 and then I booked the place February 19. "I took it very severely".


Kimmel continued his quest and asked if country singer Bryan and love song artist Richie would be singing for her big day.

He proceeded: "I said, 'You're going to have a little bit more of a different time because you're coming from a family where they expect a little bit more'".


"I've got to be honest with you", added Richie. Making mild of the uncomfortable state of affairs, Bryan joked, "Lionel and I, we've been dropping hints and this solidified [it]". The trio dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday and teased what's in store this season. Later within the interview, Katy joked to Lionel, "Would you wish to officiate my wedding ceremony?"

She then awkwardly added while the three were all sitting on the late night show's couch that 'It's gonna be a small wedding!'


Katy and Orlando have been initially set to tie the knot in 2019, however the pop singer and the hunky English actor postponed the date till 2020. A supply near the ability couple advised HollywoodLife in December 2019 why they pushed again their nuptials. "They're planning one thing actually particular and the timing didn't work out at this second when it comes to the venue". "They need some kind of reassuring moment ..." Katy divide from Russell in 2012 while Orlando and Australian version Miranda Kerr, 36, divorced in 2013. "Pretty much everything that goes to a marriage before, during, and later just has to be fine tuned so it's as great as possible. They hope to have everything finalized soon because they are very excited about getting married". We cannot wait to see Katy walk down the aisle this year!
