Katy Perry just gave Taylor Swift the biggest backhanded compliment

Still? Yep, that seems to be the case given a new snippet from American Idol.

On a per-episode basis, Katy Perry may be the most headline-grabbing judge in American Idol history.

Bryan asked an auditioning contestant who he looks up to and he said, "I'm sorry for this Katy: Taylor Swift". He then apologetically explains to Perry that he loves Taylor Swift. Katy stumbled over her words as she responded to the Swifty. Perry said that the young artist was exactly who the judges are looking for, and she is through to the next round. "And I think she's a fantastic songwriter, and I think that, you know, if we, both her and I, can be representatives of strong women that come together despite their differences, I think the whole world is going to go like, 'Yeah, well we can do this'".

Katy then made a face and shrugged.

Swift hasn't publicly paid attention to the feud since 2015.

The feud between the pop superstars goes back at least four years.

Even though Katy revealed past year that she'd "forgiven" T-Swift and didn't want to discuss their falling out anymore, it still seemed unlikely that the duo would ever be on friendly terms again.

Taylor went on to say that her rival later did something very bad enough to make it clear they will never be friends.

Wearing Daisy Duke cut-offs and holding a Starbucks drink, she sings a medley of Mariah Carey's "Emotions" (yes, she hits the high notes ) and Demo Lovato's "Stone Cold". "We've had our differences but I just continue to say, 'God bless her on her journey".
