Katy Perry's Valentines Day Themed Performance:

Just when you concluded that Katy Perry's performance was just plain boring..her swing rises and her dress becomes a projector screen that unveils wedding footage of her prenuptial's last year.  After that she breaks out into dance with "Teenage Dream".  Nice!
