Madison, who became a top eight contestant during the reality competition series joined Perry for a duet of her original song, “Still Need You” and Perry’s “By the Grace of God.” The duo serenaded the crowd on a dimly lit stage setting that was decorated with candles and lantern lights.

Perry took a casual approach to style for the performance. The pop star sported a full outfit from Stella McCartney’s fall 2023 collection. Perry’s ensemble consisted of a cropped mixed-pattern shirt and vintage double-tone denim jeans that featured distressed detailing on the hem.

The “Hot N’ Cold” artist’s dark hair was parted on the side and styled in loose curls. As for glam, Perry went with soft makeup and a glossy neutral pout.

Perry opted against footwear for the appearance, deciding to go barefoot instead of slipping into a striking pair of heels or statement mules.

The garment had streamlined cutouts at the center that were held together by 3D roses. The piece also had a dramatic train see-through floor-length skirt. Perry completed her look with a pair of matching platform sandals.

When it comes to fashion, Perry is known for having a bold and eclectic style sense, often mixing bright colors, playful prints, and statement pieces to create eye-catching looks. As for footwear, the musician has been seen in everything from pointed-toe pumps, to flats and mules by labels like Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta and Manolo Blahnik.

When off-duty, the entertainer prefers comfortable sneakers and slides by Adidas, Saint Laurent and Birkenstock. She also wears her own line of Katy Perry Collection shoes, which feature statement-making sandals, pumps and flats with sparkly embellishments and bold colors.
