She made her entrance wearing a marabou-adorned robe, her nails painted with aliens, and joked that Katy, 36, could be her sister if her father had donated sperm to her.

When Erika sat down, she said something so printable about showing her nether regions that when Luke repeated it, Katy begged her to stop.

She told the judges that she would come on the show to get revenge on the school bullies and an ex who left her just before the audition.

Katy called her ‘annoying but good’, which was when Erika asked, ‘Am I annoying? Do you like me?’

“Well, first of all you’re nice,” Katy replied. And I think you may not think you are and that is why you are wearing all this. Because honey, I’ve been Insecure Jones for a long, long time and I know it all.

Erika’s face crumpled as Katy spread her arms and pointed at her own wild cow-print outfit.

Look, Katy said. Sometimes I do this because I don’t feel like it’s enough. I also believe that no one has ever believed in you.

Erika started sobbing when Katy told her she was going to give her a chance, and Lionel Richie, 71, also approved.

At Katy’s urging, Erika ran to call her ex on camera to tell him she was going to Hollywood.

Unfortunately, she had deleted her number and the friend she called didn’t have it, so Katy urged her to say ‘Stefan’ on camera while holding up her golden ticket.

‘Hi Stefan’, Erika smiled, looking at the camera, ‘You said I had no drive, I had no motivation, I was not going anywhere in life, but hello. I’m going to Hollywood.

‘Yes Yes!’ Katy said, coming down to stand near the girl and telling her to believe in herself, adding ‘I see you’.

Katie has a six-month-old daughter, Daisy, with her 44-year-old fiancé Orlando Bloom.

The ticket: 'Hello Stefan', Erika smiled, looking at the camera, 'You said I had no drive, I had no motivation, I was not going anywhere in life, but hello.  I'm going to Hollywood '
