Watch: Katy Perry Live At ‘BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2014’

Published: Monday 26th May 2014 by David


Katy Perry rocked Glasgow, Scotland with a ‘roaring’ set at ‘BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend’ yesterday evening, doing so as part of the push for her brand new album ‘Prism.’

Now, perhaps in response to scathing criticism launched at her singing voice in the past, this performance may or may not have seen Perry employ help of the “pre-recorded persuasion”, sounding miles better than she did when she stormed the ‘X Factor UK‘ with ‘Roar’ last year.

Not sure what we mean?

Hit the play button after the jump!

Though she isn’t the strongest vocalist, one has to commend Katy for finding a lane and fully committing to it.

After all, while Lady GaGa now pays the price for straying too far from the look and sound that made her Lady GaGa, Katy stays atop Pop’s food chain with hits and live performances that speak directly to her feel good Pop loving audience, while keeping things fresh with edgy yet inoffensive concepts and themes in her videos and on stage!

    Well, she definitely sounds better here than at XF. I remember she got dragged there by everyone for that.


      Rosie, did you see how “FutureCedric” got dragged in the Madonna post?

      • Rosie May 26, 2014

        Yes, I saw it yesterday. Too bad I missed it.

  3. Me. I am Cake like Lady GaGa May 26, 2014

    She sounds better here than Lana has ever sounded live.

    • Rosie May 26, 2014

      Still mad because she ended Fadga’s career?

      • CT May 26, 2014

        I wish everyone would stop acting like gaga is over artpop is like rihannas rated r or beyonces 4 when she releases her next album she will snatch the pop girls wigs just like loud did.

      • Me. I am Cake like Lady GaGa May 26, 2014

        Only delusional Lana stans think GaGa is finish. They must explain why she selling out stadiums/arenas if she is finished

      • Kim Kardashian Stan May 26, 2014

        Rosie really needs to stfu no ones checking for Lana seeing as though west coast flopped so tragically.

      • Rosie May 26, 2014

        The irony of a K** Kardashian stan saying no one cares for Lana after their fave paid her almost $3 million just to perform three songs before their wedding.

      • Rosie May 26, 2014

        And Fadga stans can brag all they want about all her so-called “sold-out” dates when she can’t even sell out arenas anymore when she was just doing stadiums two years ago, let alone outgross Katy Perry. The decline is so real.

    • CT May 26, 2014

      Exactly even though her album is underperforming she is still a touring force. Gaga has something that most pop girls dont have its called talent. What will these girls cling too when they age and the GP is over them?

  4. Molly May 26, 2014

    Katy really isn’t that bad of a singer I’ve heard worse from (Britney,Lorde,Selena Gomez, & Justin Bieber)

    • did you say bieber,one direction,gaga,j.cole,miley,rita ora YMCMB austin mahone,or bey(my faves are in my name…drag stan) proud muslim May 26, 2014

      f*** ya for puttin Justin and selena in that be f****** list…but i shouldnt be all in that mad,they still sell better than ciara and iggy combined each

      • Molly May 26, 2014

        For once I can understand you. Hooked on phonics is really working for you. Kudos!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 26, 2014

        Dead @Molly. Thank god for @RihIcon and @Ozzy

      • rihicon. May 26, 2014

        Yassss girl I know u snatched that hooked on phonics for that sale price

  5. Me. I Am Stephy… The Elusive Chanteuse May 26, 2014

    Congrats Katy! I’m starting to like her!

  6. JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 26, 2014

    Dead @Katy Perry and all these girls who are at their peaks but struggling to sing as if they were trying “I will always love You” type of songs. I can´t get out of my head that video with Katy faking she can play the flute. It was f****** hilarious and sad. I really felt bad.
    *plays Gloria Estefan´s “Reach”*

    • Me. I Am Stephy… The Elusive Chanteuse May 26, 2014

      Lol. You always be dragging these poor young artist. They will never be great as the one in your avi. But at-least, they trying!


      Out girl is coming tomorrow. & thanks for agreeing with me in that Whitney post.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 26, 2014


      • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 26, 2014

        I´m so excited! All I´ve heard are great things even from proffesional critics (who normally don´t give Mariah the credit she deserves) and I haven´t listened to many of the songs yet cause I want it to be like back in the day, wait for the physical copy and buy it. SO EXCITED!

    • Molly May 26, 2014

      You’re one bitter queen no ones forcing you to watch it go stick to your old tired queens and leave Katy alone.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 26, 2014

        Don’t come for JohnVidal. Me is the oldest and most respected lamb here.

      • Molly May 26, 2014

        Who respects him? you cause no one else does. Btw he doesn’t even like you didn’t he call you & Stephy fake lambs lol

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 26, 2014

        He called Slutty a fake lamb but not me. No one eve called my a fake lamb besides that pressed ass bitchh @IStanForYourFav

        I don’t really care for him but he Stans for legends.

      • Molly May 26, 2014

        I remember him saying you stan for Rihanna so you really aren’t a real lamb or something like that either way i don’t like him hes to bitter when it comes to these younger artists.

      • Me. I Am Stephy… The Elusive Chanteuse May 26, 2014


      • Molly May 26, 2014

        Death at you calling Stephy “Slutty”

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 26, 2014

        No whenever I tried to shade Celine he’d try to say, “oh you Stan for Rihanna though”.

      • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 26, 2014

        @slayriah is a real fan, so @molly shup up please. The thing I said long ago was that I didn´t understand how he/she could like Rihanna so much if he/she loves someone like Mariah Carey. That´s it. Also, I don´t like how extremely rude she/he is to beyonce (an artist I don´t like, but never hate personally, or any other artist really) Don´t know why you are always so pressed when I dislike talentless girls. I visit their posts like 1 out of 20 posts about them. Most of you are hating on every single post every day. But for the most part, I ususally agree with @slayriah, at least lately.
        And also, @Molly, I like a lot of young artists, just not the talentless ones, who happen to be the most promoted nowadays (in general). It´s not my fault.

  7. did you say bieber,one direction,gaga,j.cole,miley,rita ora YMCMB austin mahone,or bey(my faves are in my name…drag stan) proud muslim May 26, 2014

      • did you say bieber,one direction,gaga,j.cole,miley,rita ora YMCMB austin mahone,or bey(my faves are in my name…drag stan) proud muslim May 26, 2014

        paris hilton and jenelle from teen mom be my roles so im glad you be knowin that half bout me..and f*** wrong with ya,u and molly be havin sumn against me and i aint know what it be

  9. Me. I am Cake like Lady GaGa May 26, 2014

    Lol at the delusion..
    How did Drunk Rey end GaGa’s career when GaGa is selling out stadiums and Lana is stuck in 2k venues?

    • The truth hurts May 26, 2014

      Why has btd that is over 2 years old been outselling Artpop for months?

    • Rosie May 26, 2014

      I was saying that Katy ended Fad’s career but carry on. Make sure to buy Chartflop so it won’t fall off the BB200 for good next week.

  10. Molly May 26, 2014

    Anyways back on topic Katy needs to make Walking on air or legendary lovers the next single other wise this era should be a wrap.

  11. The truth hurts May 26, 2014

    Where’s the post for shades of cool or the performance of ‘ultraviolence’ in Vancouver or that the album is now up for pre-order or the fact that 3 weeks before it’s release it’s already at #4 on the US itunes chart?


      The blog doesn’t keep up with Lana like that. They’re too busy obsessing over Beyonce, thinking of tired shade to throw @ Mariah/Rihanna, and shoving Rita Whora down our throats.

      • The truth hurts May 26, 2014

        There are far too many posts about Rita. I’m pretty sure this site is paid to give her publicty.

    • The truth hurts May 26, 2014

      Not to mention she has 2 other versions of ultraviolence in the top 100

    • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 26, 2014

      Mariah was #6 on that chart 3 weeks before her release too. But yeah Lana will do good I think, even if her singles don´t work.

      • Rosie May 26, 2014

        Yeah, that’s why I haven’t been coming for her iTunes stats lately. We’ll know on Wednesday.

    • Rosie May 26, 2014

      This is such a good sign! Usually albums that do that well on pre-orders do good first week (see: Coldplay, 5 Seconds of Summer).

  12. OMG Logic! May 26, 2014

    Basic Perry will she ever learn how to sing live?

  13. King_rico May 26, 2014

    I’m always feeling Katy
    Except her live performances .
    Still better than current Mariah with no
    Sense of wat she’s doing on stage this
    Time around .
    Katy >>>>>>>gaga

    • Applause May 26, 2014

      Yea cling to Katy since she doesn’t struggle for hits like Beyonce.

      • King_rico May 26, 2014

        I’ve always been a Katy fan
        X Tina and Whitney fan
        But Beyonce is my number 1
        And u shouldn’t be taking about number 1’s
        U should worry about gaga decline in the music
        Industry .
        To me gaga is fake and unoriginal she takes
        Her self to serious and has now become
        Katy’s shadow

      • Applause May 26, 2014

        To me Beyonce is fake, unoriginal, a thief, spineless etc stop acting like Beyonce last top 10 before DIL wasn’t telephone kiii Beyonce needed Gaga for relevancy don’t forget.

    • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 26, 2014

      Wow your taste is awful then…

  14. Applause May 26, 2014

    Katy was decent but why the Lana and Beyonce fans so pressed?

    • King_rico May 26, 2014

      Really b****??
      The only pressed b**** is gaga
      Having to go after Katy for using
      A green wig and a mechanical horse .
      On twitter.
      Like didn’t she rip off Madonna tho??

      • Applause May 26, 2014

        But doesn’t Beyonce rip off everyone from Shakira to Ciara Lmao sit down Katy and Bey aint s***.

  15. Lovebird May 26, 2014


    • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 26, 2014

      Didn´t you love her a few months ago? LOL

      • Me. I Am Stephy… The Elusive Chanteuse May 26, 2014

        Yass clock his tea sis!@

  16. King_rico May 26, 2014

    No gaga ain’t s***

    Like I can have my differences with all this other stans
    But u monsters I just can’t .
    I personality don’t have nothing against ur fave but she
    Will never be superior to beyonce never !!!

    • CT May 26, 2014

      She sold more records and is more talented. She has more impact she is the true heir to the throne.

      • Rosie May 26, 2014

        All of Fadga’s impact was has been left in 2011. After that everyone went back to themselves, including Katy and even Nicki.

  17. Pu$$y Juice Lover May 26, 2014

    My ears are phuckin BLEEDING

  18. Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) May 26, 2014

    The Queen better serve!

  19. rihicon. May 26, 2014

    How do u struggle to sing a song like roar or wide awake that requires basically NO VOCAL ABILITY, I could probably slay Katy’s voice if I tried smh

  20. TRUTH May 26, 2014

    People saying Katy White Trash Perry is a good performer and singer need to get a life. She can’t sing. Yall need to search the internet for REAL singers and musicians. Katy Perry is not a good example of a singer. Sorry for ya !
