Normally, I would never think that the oft-scantily clad Katy Perry belongs in the same sentence as little kids. (Especially after the Sesame Street debacle.) But the singer appeared alongside a children’s choir to kick off her “Firework” performance — and the results were sizzling. But things got even hotter as soon as Perry shed layers of clothing (who else figured there had to be something under that mesh mess?) and brought out the pyrotechnics. Dangerous!

Did her performance burn you up, Music Mixers?
