Katy Perry returned towards the metropolis she now calls property, Los angeles, on August 5 for the three-night stint at the Nokia Theater, the latest stop on her California Dreams Tour. And although her crowd-pleasing set was filled with surprising addresses (such as Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" as well as a mashup of Rihanna's "Only Lady Inside the World"/Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair"/Jay-Z's "Big Pimpin'"), it had been yet another cover, of Rebecca Black's "Friday" with fellow California gurl Rebecca herself joining in, that was the biggest surprise of all. And it just so happened to become a Friday night time!
Katy appears established to assist Rebecca Black--or "the infamous Rebecca Black," as Katy introduced her towards the Nokia crowd--extend her fifteen minutes of fame. Rebecca lately created a cameo in Katy's "Last Friday Night" video (actively playing the BFF of Katy's geek-girl alter ego, Kathy Beth Terry), and when the two reunited onstage this week, Katy beamed at her like a proud mother figure. Their shock duet ended having a hug, following which Katy sweetly declared, "That was our minute," referencing Rebecca's new "My Moment" solitary.
Ironically, although, Katy upstaged her young cost, as her superior "Friday" vocals entirely confused Rebecca's reedier voice. (And Katy's fluffy pink circus-girl get-up certainly took consideration far from Rebecca's far more sedate gray tunic and black leggings.) But that did not matter--the unison singing by the sold-out Nokia crowd in the course of this a cappella duet practically drowned out each females, specifically when partyin', partyin' spectators chanted the song's "yeahs" proper on cue.
Declared Katy afterwards , "Damn it, I adore the world wide web!" And we're positive Rebecca feels the identical way. The 14-year-old viral video clip sensation's daily life is at present a California dream come true.
