Dressed in a leather track suit with his super talented band in tow, Mars activated the sexy and went full smooth-operator inside the Staples Center, swooning the audience with lines like "If you want it, girl come and get it, all this is here for you."
Katy Perry debuts "Chained 2 the Rhythm"
Fresh off the debut off her newest single "Chained 2 the Rhythm," Katy Perry returned to the Grammy stage to perform the disco-tinged tune live for the first time. With Skip Marley, who is featured on the song, in tow, the pop star performed the record while donning a white suit with an armband that read "Persist" and dancing in front of an enclosure surrounded by a white picket fence. To close things out, the singer utilized a massive projection of the United States Constitution to showcase the phrase, "We the people."
