Would any of Zedd âs mostly female vocal collaborators appear as part of his main stage DJ-ing set at Coachella Sunday night? For a while, it seemed no — concertgoers were left to imagine Maren Morris as her voice came out of the PA during “The Middle.” Ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez did not stop by to personally reprise her lead vocal on “I Want You to Know,” either.
So it mightâve taken a few moments for the crowd to register that that really was Katy Perry coming out for “365.” Or not that long if theyâd read the reports about how Perry had been sighted at the festival the day before, catching some sets as well as reportedly engaging in PDAs with Orlando Bloom.
Perry appeared in a fringe-y pink pantsuit with hoop earrings that on the overhead monitors appeared about as large as the nearby ferris wheel.
This wasnât their first time performing the song together in concert. They debuted it live one week prior in Minneapolis at a pre-game concert during the cityâs Jam Fest, a prelude to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game the following night.
After Perry exited the stage, Zedd segued right into his remix of Whitney Houstonâs “I Want to Dance With Somebody,” followed soon after by spinning Queenâs “Bohemian Rhapsody,” leaving less question about whether the voices in his DJ set were live or Memorex.
