Jonny Brenns impressed judges Lionel Ritchie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan with his performance of the 'Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die' single.

Panic! At The Disco fans got an unexpected surprise on US TV last night (April 22nd) as American Idol contestant Jonny Brenns chose to perform 'This Is Gospel' as he competed among the Top 14 final contestants.

Singing out the Brendon Urie classic in front of judges Katy Perry, Lionel Ritchie and Luke Bryan and a live studio audience, Brenns was praised for his confident performance. The teenager, originally from South West Florida, has also accompanied himself on piano and guitar during previous rounds of the competition.

Fans on social media certainly seemed surprised to see Panic! popping up during Idol:


If only we could go back in time and get Jennifer Hudson to have a go at 'Death Of A Bachelor'. Now THAT would be interesting...

Panic! At The Disco will release their new album 'Pray For The Wicked' in June. They will perform at the BBC's Biggest Weekend event in May before returning to the UK to headline Reading & Leeds festivals in August.
