American Idol Judges Play Fun Christmas Game ‘Naughty or Nice’ (Video)

Lionel Richie Katy Perry Luke Bryan Ryan Seacrest American Idol Christmas

American Idol’s Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Ryan Seacrest play “Naughty or Nice” at Christmas

American Idol judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and host Ryan Seacrest delivered Christmas cheer from the season 20 set with a fun game of  “Naughty or Nice.”

During the game, Ryan mentions holiday-related and the group each declares either “naughty” or “nice” by holding up a festive paddle. It’s kind of like Dancing with Stars! But stupid.

It’s a split decision on “Ugly Christmas Sweaters.” But the group agrees that eggnog is “Ewwww….” Suprisingly, one of the judges called “yellow snow” nice. You can probably guess who that is.

And Katy Perry likes her some fake Christmas trees. Luke intones, “You’re in trouble.” But in her defence she asks, “Do you have a toddler?” She has a point. 

The video concludes with Ryan exclaiming, “Merry Christmas everyone.”
