With the season finale within reach, American Idol will air a new episode tonight, but it isn’t just any normal show.

Speaking about her time on the show, Russell discussed her connection with Perry. She said, “I feel this weird connection with Katy. I feel like she just encouraged me so much and, I don’t know, I just felt like it was her wanting me to be Emmy but then be proud of where I’ve come from, too.”
