Katy Perry's Billboard Performance - Watch Now!

Katy Perry is gorgeous as she performs her song “Wide Awake” for the first time at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas, Nev.

The 27-year-old entertainer picked up the Spotlight Award.

“This is cool! They told me the only other person who’s received this award is Michael Jackson, so I feel incredibly honoured to be in the same category – although I don’t compare at all!” Katy said.

After the awards ceremony, Katy tweeted, “Kittens! My new single WIDE AWAKE, the final chapter of Teenage Dream, listen and learn the lyrics #WIDEAWAKE”

Check out her performance below!

    Pink would call out Christina for copying her if she did that performance…But Bullies know who they can pick on and who they can’t.

  • stacy

    she’s so boring im sick of this talentless woman

  • michelle

    Way to copy Pink………..

  • N

    Ohhh man….she cannot sing live. Its awful.

  • B

    Katy Perry is soo annoying.But i hate how she is being compared to Pink , when Pink is such a wannabe,she is such a big bully.Annoying is way better than being a bully , soo way to go Katy !.

  • Miranda

    Completely overrated and talentless. Her live singing is extremely cringe worthy.

  • lola

    I know it’s probably harder to sing on a swing but still, she sounds terrible live.

  • the_boyfriend

    she asks to listen and learn the lyrics but you couldn’t make them out, they were so shaky.
    awful performance, if another artist did this they’d make headlines but everyone knows it’s katy, talentless, basic.
    wake me up!

  • Tys

    When P!nk done it, it was amazing.
    When Katy done it, wow, how can i put this? It was terrible. I seen P!nk live on her Im Not Dead tour and her Funhouse tour and it was amazing. I seen Katy Perry on her California Dreams tour. I fell asleep.

  • Tys

    P!nk is a bully? Awkward moment when she has been awarded an Equality award and has some of the most inspirational songs such as ‘F**kin’ Perfect’. An IQ like yours is something that should be compared to Katy Perrys.

  • Sam

    Why is acrobatics happening during her singing performance? It’s absolutely awful, awkward and distracting. Her voice is already mediocre at best…but her voice was terrible at this performance all because she had to do some stupid tricks in silk. Sing…that’s your job…you can’t be an acrobat too.

  • Crys

    Lyrics is nice. The celebrities are finally awakening to the Light.

  • B

    @Tys really ?? Because Pink has trashed both Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez and Britney Spears. She is soo annoying and such a wannabe rockstar.Don’t talk to me about my IQ when it’s my opinion that’s making you comment and making a big deal out of nothing. I just happen to think Pink is a bully , get over it !.

  • Jevie

    Oh wow!! That was really really bad!

  • Effy

    She just keeps on getting worse.

  • Gigi

    @lola: I agree, but no excuses. don’t do it if you know you’re blatantly copying another artist’s performance unless you’re going to be of equal or greater value.

  • Tys

    @B: Well you think wrong. And no. Shut the hell up stupid girl. P!nk is apart of the PETA organization which tempered her when air-headed Selena put pink horses in her music video, Christina is was a rude whore on the ‘Lady Marmalade’ set of the song and Britney Spears? Who doesnt have a go at her. Shes auto-tuned as f**ked. Too bad they dont do brain donors.
