Did you hear Katy roar tonight? Oh man, America sure did: While Bruce Willis was on hosting duties, Katy Perry let the light in with some Prism promo on Saturday Night Live, turning out a performance of her #1 smash “Roar” and also delivering a solid showing of her new single “Walking On Air,” bringing all kinds of high energy.
In a miniature recreation of the music video for “Roar”, she trotted out the furries by way of a backing band and delivered a little jungle on the SNL stage, giving an additional boost to the hit single — not like the song needs it, at this point — with typically solid vocals and a lot of showmanship.
Later in the show, she offered up the first televised performance of her ’90s-referencing dance cut “Walking On Air,” rocking a white crop top and tartan schoolgirl skirt with white-clad backup dancers. As opposed to the relatively light choreography of “Roar,” her “Walking On Air” performance saw Perry getting unusually hardcore with her choreography — and she turned it out nicely, looking killer, wind machines and all.
