After hearing his story, Katy Perry’s head immediately fell to the judging table. She came unhinged with tears falling down her face as she melted down. Her heart broke that this was the story Trey Louis had to introduce himself with. That this was the reason he was on the show. She desperately wanted him to be on the show because he loved singing and not because he was looking for happiness and joy.

“This is not OK! You should be singing here because you love music! Not because you had to go through that ****. You didn’t have to lose… friends. I hope that you remind people that we have to change, because, you know what? I’m scared too.”
