Tuesday night, Pop Princess [lastfm]Katy Perry[/lastfm] rocked a heart-pounding performance of some of her hottest new tracks peppered with her classics live from the Ed Sullivan Theater. Katy’s ultra-sweet, adrenalin inducing show was the latest from the web’s premiere online streaming concert series Live on Letterman.

Right from the start, Katy was all hot and no cold, as she opened with the classic hit off her debut album and bridged into a jazzy turned rock version of “I Kissed a Girl.” By the time she belted out the first notes of “Teenage Dream” the energy was uncontainable, as Katy’s biggest fans reveled in the excitement of hearing her new tracks live in such an intimate venue. But the overwhelming response wasn’t just contained within those four walls. Katy’s fans around the world rocked out in unison and shared their love for Katy over Twitter.
Here are a few of our favorite tweets from around the globe:

Even though Teenage Dream had just been released that morning, superfans were already singing along in unison as Katy rocked the album’s anthem “Fireworks,” which is sure to become one of her biggest hits.
The show was filled with non-stop thrills, but the biggest OMG moment was easily when Katy returned from her costume change. While she was backstage slipping into her next outfit, the band played the 80’s hit “I Want Candy,” and as soon as Katy bounced back on stage, she delivered. Katy’s fresh outfit was worth the wait. Clad in tights and feathers, she treated to the crowd to the first ever live performance of “Peacock,” which was just as hot as her outfit.
But the night wouldn’t be complete without the West Coast girl performing this summer’s biggest hit, “California Gurls,” and the master show-woman pulled it out in full force as her incomparable closer.
If you somehow missed this epic event or just want to see it again, a repeat is performance is available above and on demand.
