Katy Perry Performs ‘Part of Me’ in U.K. TV Special
Laser beams, neon colors — Katy Perry‘s performance of ‘Part of Me’ shows her breaking out from what is either a futuristic cage or a ’90s school picture back drop.
Clad in a skintight purple super heroine-style suit similar to the gold one she donned for her Grammys performance of the track, Perry sings along to a backing track and dances somewhat awkwardly inside a barrier of green lasers. Towards the conclusion of the first chorus, she busts out, perhaps symbolic of breaking away from a failed relationship.
Perry’s vocals are relatively on point, but her choreography leaves a bit to be desired. Perry is a bit stiff when she dances, and she looks uncomfortable and self-conscious. She has enough eye candy and lighting effects accompanying her to distract somewhat, but we can’t help but think she’d be better off either taking dance lessons or just standing there and singing, a la fellow diva Adele.
Check out Perry’s performance below. The girl knows how to put on a show for sure, we’re just not sure if dancing needs to be part of it — at least maybe until she goes to a dance boot camp. Maybe that’s the secret theme of her upcoming video.
