KATY PERRY: Australia's next TV forecaster? Photo: YouTube

Pop superstar Katy Perry left Australian TV presenters in hysterics on Tuesday when she mispronounced the names of some of the country’s most famous cities while reading the weather forecast.

The Channel 7’s Sunrise Show team chuckled when she said the name Cairns wrong and burst into hysterical laughter when she pronounced the country’s capital city, Canberra, as “Curnaberra”. The presenters stepped in to correct her before Perry went on to give the forecast for “Hogwarts” – apparently confusing the city of Hobart with the fictional school from the Harry Potter series.
