Katy Perry Performs At David Lynch Foundation Concert: Watch


Katy Perry joined Sting and Jerry Seinfeld at the David Lynch Foundation benefit concert on Wednesday at Carnegie Hall.

The event raised money to teach transcendental meditation in New York, however Lynch was not in attendance because he was busy filming Showtime’s reboot of Twin Peaks in the Pacific Northwest.

All eyes were on Katy Perry, anyway. She performed a trancey remix of “Teenage Dream” before tackling “Wide Awake.”

She said, “you know when you have a crappy day or something that doesn’t want to go right?” Perry said. “I always excuse myself for 20 minutes, and then I’m back.”

Perry’s five-song set included a performance alongside a violinist for “Dark Horse,” replacing Juicy J’s rap verse with the stunning string ensemble. She concluded her set with “Roar” and “Firework,” including surprise back-up dancers: four ballerinas.
