Katy Perry rang in the holiday with a Cinco de Mayo-themed Instagram from the set of “American Idol!” The show is down to its last five contestants, and the KP Collection designer — fittingly — has five wigs in her dressing room.

President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, issued a statement in honor of the holiday. “I send my greetings and best wishes to all those celebrating Cinco de Mayo.
