Katy Perry: "That so cray"

Katy Perry and her electric blue wig turned up at Radio 1 this morning for an extended Live Lounge special.

Now, I know what you're thinking - Katy Perry's pitch is usually as even as the Moldovan football team's - but, rather than running for the hills with my fingers jammed tightly down my earholes, I actually found the whole thing rather enjoyable. Yes, even when she went for the high notes on the ballad-tastic Thinking Of You.

The best, and most unexpected, moment was a cleaned up cover of Jay-Z and Kanye West's N****as In Paris. You assume it's going to be awful, then it becomes surprisingly tolerable, and by the end you'll be fist-pumping the skyline.

As a wiser man than me said, it all works because she doesn't try to do an authentic rap. Great song choice.

PS: If the video is taken down (as it undoubtedly will be) you can still listen to the session on Radio 1's Website.
