Katy Perry Joins The PS22 Kids For “Firework” On ‘Oprah’

When it came to choosing an inspirational jam for the PS22 Chorus to belt out, Oprah Winfrey went with Katy Perry’s “Firework.” (Maybe Pink’s “F**kin’ Perfect” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” were just too scandalous for the elementary kiddies?) But little did O’s audience know that the stylish and evolutionary Katy herself would be stepping out on stage to croon her #1 hit along with the Staten Island school children. Watch below. Yesterday Perry tweeted, “Today was such a beautiful day. PS 22 & Oprah made ME feel like a firework… refocused me & reminded me of my purpose. Thank you.”

Winfrey’s special After-Oscar Party 2011 episode was taped at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre.

Anyone else thinking Katy should enlist the PS22 kids for her California Dreams tour? Who needs to go to school, anyway?
