Katy Perry Brings 'Firework' to Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
After a misstep with "Sesame Street" earlier this fall, the never TV-shy Katy Perry (and her skintight leotards) finally found the perfect outlet for her talents (and assets) at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which aired last night (Nov. 30) on CBS.

The singer, whose shimmering periwinkle body suit could have doubled for modest lingerie, performed her single "Firework" at the end of the runway. Katy's back-up dancers could have doubled for butlers, but you know, butlers who are better at shaking their tail feathers than shaking a feather duster.
The backing track overpowered Perry's vocals for portions of the performance, but with the criticism she's been getting lately regarding her vocal quality during live appearances, perhaps that was intentional.
Ms. Perry also performed a punchy medley of "Teenage Dream," "Hot N Cold" and "California Gurls." Naturally, there was a wadrobe and set change, which had the singer looking, as usual, like a David LaChapelle photo. The models, many clad in VS' Pink line, were rocking equally fun looks. And there were bubbles!

Additionally, CBS aired a video of VS "angels" lip-syncing "Firework." Cute in an it-gets-old-real-quick sort of way. Watch below.
Oh, and Akon performed the appropriate "Angel," but he mostly flirted with the models on the catwalk. Meow.
