Katy Perry appeared at Sunday night's Grammy Awards broadcast to perform "Dark Horse," her latest hit song and a collaboration with rapper Juicy J.

That's Academy Award winner Juicy J, as we were reminded last night.

While Katy's live singing is never her strength, she definitely doesn't lip-sync, and she knows how to make up for any vocal shortcomings with theatrics.

Inside a crystal ball as the song began, donning a provocative, gothic ensemble throughout and standing in front of a fire at the end, she gave us an eyeful.

Watch Katy Perry's 2014 Grammys performance below and see ...

A not-cheaply-produced feast for the senses. That's Katy for you.

Perry received two 2014 Grammy nominations for "Roar," the hit single off her latest album, Prism, which was not eligible for consideration as a whole.

It missed this year's deadline, but look for it at next year's show.

What did you think of Katy's performance? Did she hold her own with her peers? Other head-turning live efforts at last night's much-watched broadcast:

While Carrie Underwood's dress lit up Staples Center last night, Katy Perry's revealing, light green gown was the Grammys' true eye-popper. Like, whoa.

Despite CBS' directive urging stars to "please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered," the singer donned this dress Sunday.

Katy Perry Dress (Grammys)

"I was inspired by Priscilla Presley in the '70s," Perry explained on the red carpet when asked about her jaw-dropping look. "The big hair, closer to God."

Or something. Needless to say, Katy Perry's dress quickly became a trending topic on Twitter after she appeared on the red carpet, setting fans abuzz.

The consensus was that it wasn't a great look for KP - unless you're a straight guy - and that John Mayer was the big winner of the 2013 Grammy Awards.

Featuring her new song "Part of Me," Katy Perry's Grammy performance contained what many felt was a thinly-veiled shot at Russell Brand Sunday night.

Rihanna and Coldplay joined forces in a performance of "Princess of China" that didn't generate as much controversy, but was still very well received.

Which of the two stars will perform better in a red carpet style showdown, though? That's the question of the hour. At least on The Hollywood Gossip.

Rihanna, as you can see, showed serious skin. Katy? Not so much in a blue gown that matched her hair (obviously). But she made up for that later.

Their divorce is amicable and we don't normally like to read into things like this, but Katy Perry's new song, "Part of Me," sure sounds like a dig at Russell Brand.

The newly Katy started off her 2012 Grammy Awards performance singing her hit "E.T.", but then the music suddenly stopped and she burst into "Part of Me."

Aggressively, she sang lyrics like:

“You chewed me up and spit me out / Like I was poison in your mouth / You took my light, you drained me down / You ripped me off, your love was cheap.”

Easy to interpret it as bitterness toward Brand, no? Watch Perry perform in a ridiculously tight, form fitting rubber cat suit of sorts with her blue hair below:

Perhaps the strongest indication that this was aimed at Russell? The original song lyrics include, “You can keep the dog from me, I never liked him anyway.”

But last night, Perry sang: “Keep your diamond ring, in fact, you can keep everything – except for me.” Ouch. That's got to hurt, R ... amicable split or not.

Katy Perry has booked her first U.S. performances since breaking up with Russell Brand late last year. It looks like she's got a busy week ahead of her, too.

The 27-year-old hits the stage at a private pre-Super Bowl party in Indianapolis Saturday, then will do double duty on Grammy weekend in Los Angeles.

On February 10, she'll be among the headliners honoring Paul McCartney at the MusiCares benefit. Then it's on to the 2012 Grammy Awards February 12!

Katy Perry is Back

Perry is a nominee for Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Solo Performance, and has enjoyed a record-setting year, making the Grammys a fitting return spot.

Katy has performed abroad as a single woman, just not in the U.S. In her first show since Russell Brand filed for divorce, Perry planted a kiss on a lucky fan's cheek.

A pic of Perry smooching the surprised, shirtless male onstage caused quite a stir on the Internet. Katy set the record straight on Twitter afterward, though:

"I have *kissed* 1 boy, picked randomly out of the audience, on the cheek as part of my show for all 125 tour dates," she tweeted. "Simmer down now."

LOL. Sure ... but were you single then, Katy?!
