Katy Perry invites a fan on stage

June 11, 2011 Ft. Lauderdale. Katy Perry, the ultimate California Girl, turns out to be a Florida Girl. "I grew up in Fort Myers" professes Katy to an intimate crowd of 18,000 at the Bank Atlantic Center. As Perry's new husband and comedian movie star Russell Brand watched the show off sides, Katy delivered her portfolio of hits in her uniquely surreal and cartoon-esque style. The pop star embraced the audience as she invited fans onto the candy cane embellished stage for photo ops and dancing!

The show opened up with KP signature hit "Teenage Dream" followed up with "Hummingbird Heartbeat." Intricate and artistic choreography unveiled throughout the evening and, most notably, when Katy danced with mimes and harlequins. As the dancers fluidly wrapped bands around Katy's body in the mist with muted blue lights, it was as if Henri Matisse's masterpiece painting "Dance" had come to life on stage!

Katy jumped next into "Waking Up In Vegas" as she brought on her slot girl (dancer dressed as a slot machine) and followed into "Ur So Gay." "Peacock" offered up another mesmerizing choreography sequence as feather boas and costume tails were abundant. "I Kissed A Girl" brought the crowd to their feet and for Katy's latest hit "E.T." she wore a cat girl black spandex, leather, sequenced costume.

It seems the standard fare for mega stars on tour today is to aerially traverse the arena. Katy's transport was a floating cushion with candy cane on which she did an acoustic set with covers Rihanna "Only Girl (In The World)" and the youtube sensation Rebecca Black "Friday."

The evening continued as Perry's repertoire of hits flowed including "Last Friday Night (TGIF)" and "Hot N Cold." Katy sported her trademark tidy bowl blue wig and showered the audience with her candy cane uzi canon. A very touching and invigorating cover followed of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" which built up momentum for "Firework" and encore of "California Girls."
