Katy Perry joined multiple artists on Sunday night to celebrate The Beatles. The moment had fans delighted, as she performed on stage for the Grammy special. Entitled, “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America,” the stars belted out hit after hit in honor of the British band. According to Zap2It on Sunday, it goes without saying that the music of The Beatles changed pop culture history forever.
While Perry sounded lovely, there were a few fans who questioned her fashion statement. Wearing a long flowering dress that included a floor link cape, the look was a bit over the top, but still stylish. Her outfit was reminiscent of the era of muumuu and tent dresses. The modified updo of her hair was similar to the beehive styles of the 60s as well. But she looked a bit like someone from the future too, however, fans didn’t seem to mind her new look as she sounded as good as ever.
The Grammy tribute was contributed to The Beatles and the first time the British band were seen on television. The broadcast was timed to be exactly 50 years ago to the day, date and time of the original time the band was seen in America for the first time.
