Katy Perry Performs ‘Roar’ at Coronation Concert
Sunday’s coronation concert took place at Windsor Castle. Perry was accompanied by a chorus of singers and an orchestra of musicians as she performed “Roar” while wearing a gold metallic ballgown with matching gloves.
Perry’s performance also featured a group of drones creating the shape of a lion in the sky over the stage. She followed up “Roar” with a performance of her song “Firework,” dedicating it “to the King, and to the work that we get to do together for the British Nation Trust, and the Children’s Protection Fund.”
During the song’s finale, sparklers lit up the stage. Sunday night’s concert also featured a performance from Perry’s fellow American Idol judge Lionel Richie, who took the stage to sing his hits “Easy” and “All Night Long.”
Perry Had Trouble Finding Her Seat on Saturday
Perry was also in attendance at Saturday’s coronation, which took place at Westminster Abbey. Unfortunately, she appeared to have some trouble finding her seat at the event. Video went viral of Perry wandering around searching for the right spot.
The singer had a sense of humor about the situation, sharing a tweet later that read, “don’t worry guys i found my seat.” The funny post has received over 11,000 retweets and more than 160,000 likes as of this writing.
Perry and Richie were absent from the American Idol panel on Sunday, as Alanis Morissette and Ed Sheeran filled in for them as guest judges. However, the two regular judges appeared virtually during Sunday’s show. King Charles himself even made a cameo.
