Billboard Awards 2012: Katy Perry channels Pink for 'Wide Awake' performance -- watch nowAdd to Favorites | 2014 Billboard Music Awards
Given her very public breakup with husband Russell Brand earlier this year, it's hard not to connect the lyrics of "Wide Awake," her song choice for the evening, with her personal turmoil. Wearing a cameo around her neck and a bridal gown, with mournful expressions on the faces of her dancers, Perry looked every bit the scorned lover.
For the performance, Perry took a cue from Pink's breathtaking trapeze performance at the 2010 Grammy Awards. Her acrobatics weren't quite so elaborate, but like Pink, Perry made sure to sing live -- a rare occurrence at this year's show.
What do you think of the performance?
