Katy Perry's finale
Perry pulled out all the stops in her show-closing performance of "Roar" - you know, the single that's currently outselling Gaga's "Applause" 2-to-1 - with the singer belting out the tune in a giant "boxing ring" located beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. While her vocals were shaky throughout (for all her showmanship, Perry has never been the most technically-proficient live singer), she clearly gave the performance her all, and it was no doubt one of the fiercest, most energetic showstoppers of the night. Sadly for Gaga, she also succeeded in eclipsing Mother Monster's opening performance - which had to hurt, just a little.
