The Daily Grind Video

There is only one way to end the MTV Video Music Awards.

With some attitude.

Pop superstar Katy Perry closed the 2013 MTV VMAS with a performance of her latest single, the defiant “Roar.”

What made this performance cool is that Katy Perry wasn’t in the building: the singer performed her latest single from under the Brooklyn Bridge. (We got to give it up to MTV — they really took over Brooklyn.)

During her performance, Katy, wearing a tiger-themed outfit, performed inside of a boxing ring. What can we say, the girl’s tough.

Watch the performance above. And thank you, MTV, for a great night!
