In her second go-around, her vocals were clearly live — no backing track — and while she sounded pitched quite differently, she pulled it off ably and sounded pretty good. Solid redemption, Katy.
Watch it up top.
NRJ has issues the following statement about Katy’s performance:
“Katy Perry was singing live at the NRJ Awards Saturday night in Cannes, but regrettably the wrong mix has been played accidentally which over-rode Katy’s live vocal feed on-air at the beginning of her performance of ‘Roar. TF1 & NRJ would like to apologize to NRJ double award winner Katy Perry for this technical problem beyond our control.”
