Katy Perry Roars In a Cheerleader Outfit For Lucky Colorado High School

Perry got into the school spirit for a special 29th birthday concert on Friday (October 25) at Lakewood High School in Colorado.

How did Katy Perry celebrate her 29th birthday 
 on Friday morning (October 25)? Not by popping bottles and wilding out with friends in Las Vegas (that might come later), but by slipping into a cheerleader outfit and performing a five-song mini-set for some high school students in Colorado.

The special appearance at Lakewood High School in Lakewood, Colorado, was seen by 2,700 students and staff and aired live on “Good Morning America.” The lucky high schoolers earned the honor over four other finalists after winning a contest for the best lip dub of “Roar.” Oh, and, not for nothing, but the school’s mascot is a Tiger, so that worked out pretty well.

“I’m 29 and I feel great,” Perry told GMA’s Sam Champion. “I still feel like I’m 13 sometimes. Obviously you can tell by my music and my spirit … I just loved all the participation and the unification … of all you guys coming together and roaring in one shot! That was so cool!”

Their winning, elaborate one-shot contest-winning video began with a student escorting the school’s mascot into the gym and then through a gauntlet of the field hockey team, the pep squad, cross country and basketball teams, as well as the debate society, ultimate Frisbee club, volleyball crew and just about every other extracurricular at the school.
