Katy Perry followed up last week's prop-filled Super Bowl Halftime Show with a notably stripped down performance at last night's Grammy Awards.
Singing her ballad, 'By the Grace of God,' the nominee turned the track into a message about overcoming domestic violence.

Before Katy hit the stage, President Barack Obama appeared in a pre-taped video, urging the end of "violence against women and girls." He continued, "It's on us, all of us, to create a culture where violence isn't tolerated."
To the bevy of musicians in the room, he added, "Artists have a unique power to change minds and attitudes and get us thinking and talking about what matters."
Domestic abuse survivor and performance artist Brooke Axtell then delivered a powerful spoken word piece before Katy came out — clad in all white.
Standing before a giant screen while interpretive dancers performed behind it, the 30-year-old put her heart and soul into the song, which received a standing ovation.
It was an important reminder that the conversation surrounding domestic violence should forever be at the forefront.
