If you thought Lady Gaga at the halftime show of Super Bowl LI a few weeks ago was wild and weird, then you probably haven’t watched the games from the past few years. Who can possibly forget Katy Perry and her halftime number during Super Bowl XLIX back in 2015? She was singing “Teenage Dreams” in a curious beach setting on the stage with dancing trees, beach balls and surfboards. Oh and let’s not forget the dancing costumed sharks to her left and right. At first they were in sync until “Left Shark” (the one on the observer’s left, Katy’s right) decided to just wing it for the rest of the song.

That was hilarious, and now this year, while performing at an awards ceremony in the UK, something happened to one of her backups that could well be the new “Left Shark” thing.

‘Chained to the Rhythm’

Wednesday February 22 was the 2017 brit awards, technically the British counterpart to the American Grammys in honoring the current best in UK music and the world and organized by British Phonographic Industry. Perry was one of the featured performers of the evening, and she belted out her new single “Chained to the Rhythm”, on stage dressed in a feminine pinstripe suit with numerous Backup Dancers dressed up as houses. Yes you read right, houses. It was an interesting formation dance routine they pulled out with Katy at the center, when all of a sudden one of the dancing white houses turned in the wrong direction – and walked right off the stage.

Count on misfortune to be the hit of the moment, and Perry's falling house-dancer went viral after a vid of the accident was tweeted for the internet’s consumption. With over 27,000 likes and plus 20,000 re-tweets, it’s sure to be a transient topic of conversation regarding music. Some of the commentators went so far as to call it “Left Shark 2.0” after the more famous incident from two years ago.

Political undertones

Katy Perry's “Chained to the Rhythm” number at the Brit Awards also caught some detractors with its two set pieces of skeletons dressed up curiously like President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May. The British Parliament has recently debated over the merits of letting Trump make a state visit, the earliest invitation ever extended to a newly elected US President thus far.
