Katy Perry may have been the fourth performer at tonight's GRAMMYs, but she was the first to put on an elaborate showing. After chill sets from Beyonce, Lorde and Hunter Hayes, Perry—along with rapper Juicy J—transformed the stage into a gothic, wizard basement party for their go at "Dark Horse."

Along with elaborate moves from her dancers, a makeshift galloping horse, there were also flames blazing around Perry. Still, they didn’t outshine her vocals, which soaring throughout her stint.

"Dark Horse" is the third single off Perry's "PRISM," and is currently at No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart.

It remains to be seen whether Katy's performance was the best of the night, though it was the initial shot of adrenalin the GRAMMYs got in 2014.
