Katy Perry Goes Heavy Metal At The GRAMMY Nominations Concert

Katy Perry, who scooped up four GRAMMY nominations—album of the year, best pop vocal album, best female pop vocal performance, and best pop collaboration—went for the gold (and the silver!) at last night’s GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live (the 2011 GRAMMY Awards will take place on Feb. 13). Pre-show, the starlet posed in a calf-length, gold sequined Georges Chakra boat neck dress that was just as form-fitting as her favorite latex minis, and just as gilded as a GRAMMY award. Afterward, she hit the stage to perform “California Gurls” in a silver tutu, which she wore with white arm warmers, a sparkly cuff, a glittering mini-top hat (that reminded us of a Christmas ornament), and a blinged-out microphone. If we weren’t in the holiday spirit before, thanks to Katy’s festive frocks, we definitely are now. Sleigh ride, anyone?
