This trial took place for a week in Los Angeles, the singer testified, but on the day of the trial she was not present to give the final opinion.

However, the singer in her testimony assured that the song may sound a bit similar to Flame's, but that this would have happened without her having knowledge of it. But, Flame says that her song was released in 2008 and that by then it was available on all platforms and that Katy's producers could have possibly heard it.

Next Tuesday there will be an answer to the trial and how much the singer and her producers will have to pay for the possible plagiarism of rhythm in their song.
