The “Firework” singer took a break from American Idol judging duties to go buy tickets for the draw: a record-setting cash payment of $US1.6 billion, which was drawn overnight.

Katy was spotted by another lottery hopeful, WDRB News reporter and anchor Gilbert Corsey, who captured the moment with a selfie.

“I guess even superstars want their shot at the #MegaBillions,” Corsey tweeted. “I bumped into Katy Perry taking a break from American Idol in Louisville to grab a ticket. (Side note she was a super sweet and took pictures with all!).”
