Katy Perry Covers Rihanna, Jay-Z And Whips Her Hair

Katy Perry joined Kylie Minogue this weekend in kicking off her own world tour in Lisbon, Portugal last night. Now, if you’ve followed any of Katy’s promotional campaign for this album, she’s incorporated much of the Candyland playfulness in the new show. Even some of the set she showed during the Grammy Awards above were incorporated into her new show.

The show starts with a black and white video intro showing Katy in a miserable life and then she follows her kitten into a magical world and then Katy appears on stage. While she sings all her hits, it’s the extras that truly have me flabbergasted. She covers Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” and even gives her friend a birthday shout-out before continuing the acoustic cover set with some Jay-Z and then doing Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair.” Watch the clip after the jump!

Perry then ends the evening with a cover of Whitney Houston’s classic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody…”

Sounds like a teenage wet dream if you know what I’m saying…
