28 Apr 2011 Extra-Terrestrial Katy Perry on American Idol
Katy Perry illuminated the stage on American Idol last thursday night wearing a skintight CuteCircuit design, a sexy white catsuit adorned with thousands of interactive LEDs and glimmering Swarovski crystals.
Katy performed her latest chart topping single E.T. in her only live television performance of the song. Katy Perry shared the stage with surprise guest Kanye West who added his own lyrical performance to the bridge of the song.
CuteCircuit designers Francesca and Ryan commented, “The design inspiration grew directly from Katy’s song. We wanted to use shapes and fabrics that would amplify the unique atmosphere of the music video and create a stunning visual experience.” Even pop-star Rihanna was impressed with Katy’s otherworldly look tweeting, “How f***in smokin is @katyperry as an alien??”
Newspaper reviews of the performance ranged from glowing to astonished with one paper exclaiming, “Forget extraterrestrial, Katy is extra-delectable!” To experience the full performance for yourself check out this YouTube link below.

Following the success of Katy’s stunning performance, sales of her chart topping hit saw an increase of over half a million, shooting the single into the #1 spot on both Billboard’s Hot 100 and the US iTunes Charts.
