Houston, we have a problem.

The "California Gurls" singer got stuck in the air during a concert in Nashville, Tenn. on Oct. 18. As part of her Witness tour, the Grammy-nominated artist performed a number from a giant floating planet. Perry—perched upon a suspended Saturn in a sparkly, silver ensemble—told fans she couldn't get down. 

"I'm really stuck," she told concert attendees. "This is the first time that I've been stuck in space. I know I'm kind of a space cadet, but actually this thing is being stuck right now." 

The "Firework" performer then told fans, "You better put your phone up because this is a YouTube moment."

As she hovered in the air, Perry wondered how she should spend her time up in space. 

"I'm going to be stuck here forever," she told fans. "What should I do? Should I tell some jokes? Should I tell some stories? Should I just sing another song?"

Thankfully, the singer's crew was able to lower her down. As she descended, Perry told her fans that the view was "beautiful." 

"You guys made it look so magnificent," she said. "Like honestly, y'all are the real stars tonight."

Once she touched down, Perry decided to interact with her fans.

"Well, I guess I'm just going to have to get down and walk amongst my people," she said before jumping into the crowd.

Watch the video posted by Dance with Dre to see Perry float back down to safety.

This isn't the first time Perry has ventured into space for a show. While hosting the 2017 MTV VMAs, Perry dressed up in an astronaut costume and floated onto the stage. She then made a few jokes about how the world had changed since she left planet Earth.

She can also be seen floating in space in the music video for her song "E.T."

We're glad Perry was able to make it back down safe and sound.
