We all woke up this morning to the surprise news that *NSYNC would be reuniting at Sunday night’s Video Music Awards (even if some MTV viewers are too young to remember the boy band darlings). Tonight, there was yet another announcement about the show’s lineup. Specifically, Katy Perry will be performing her new single “Roar” to close the broadcast. If the video is any indication, expect this performance to be drastically different from her 2010 neon teen dream appearance. Cause she’s serious Katy now, guys.
