Firework' singer takes on Adele's Number One hit during Sheffield show
Katy Perry paid tribute to Adele by covering her hit song ‘Someone Like You’ during her headline show at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena earlier this week (October 12) – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.
The ‘Firework’ star, who has just started her run of UK tour dates, gave her own take on the Number One single by the British chart-topper by incorporating it into a medley with her own track ‘The One That Got Away’.
‘The One That Got Away’ is the sixth single from Perry’s latest studio album ‘Teenage Dream’. If the track goes to Number One in the US, it will beat Michael Jackson‘s record for chart toppers from one album, which he achieved with 1987’s ‘Bad’.
Perry has so far topped the US charts with ‘California Gurls’, ‘Teenage Dream’, ‘Firework’, ‘ET’ and ‘Last Friday Night’.
Earlier this week, the singer announced her visit to England via Twitter, posting: “FINALLY! Beloved ENGLAND! 1st thing I did was stuff me gob w/some Yorkshire puddings & meat pies from Silversmiths in Sheffield. Ah bless.”
Both Adele and Katy Perry triumphed at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) which were held in Los Angeles in August, with Adele‘s track ‘Rolling In The Deep’ scooping gongs for Best Editing, Best Direction, Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography. However, it lost out to Perry’s ‘Firework’ in the Video Of The Year category.
Last month, Adele was forced to cancel a 10-date tour of the US due to a haemorrhage in her vocal chords. She has since denied that her persistent vocal problems are down to smoking, but are instead because she has been “talking too much”.
