She put the kids to work.

Katy Perry opened up the iHeartRadio Music Awards with a stomping performance of “Chained To The Rhythm.”

Showing off a Miley Cyrus-inspired new do, the newly-single singer ran on “the wheel of life” and bopped around the stage in a red pant suit while a bunch of kids worked on chaining up a teddy bear. The song’s feature collaborator, Skip Marley, made a brief on-stage appearance following Perry’s quick moment with Halsey. It wasn’t nearly as encapsulating as her stint at the BRITs, but it got the job done.

Watch below (we’ll update with the full performance once it becomes available):
