It all started after junior high and high school government teacher at Anaheim Discovery Christian School in California, Brian Kwan, issued his annual special assignment. This year, the teacher challenged students to get Katy Perry’s attention.
The assignment: "Any student that can bring Katy Perry to this school and have her talk to me, you get an automatic A+ for my class; a video of her talking and saying my name (shout-out) get [sic] you an automatic B+."
Naturally, Seacrest is a go-to when it comes to getting near Idol judge Perry and he more than hooked up student Jonathan because he got not only Perry, but also Richie and Bryan!
While Katy didn’t exactly say Brian Kwain’s name herself, Jonathan still surely deserves some form of extra credit 😂
