Making her declaration of independence from her failed marriage, Katy Perry sang her new single “Wide Awake” at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards tonight (May 20).

The “I Kissed a Girl” singer really outdid herself with an acrobatic theme, dangling from the rafters and spinning around above the crowd.

Adding to the ambiance were several background dancers that floated about against the cloudy sky-themed backdrop.

“Wide Awake,” described by Perry as one of her most personal songs yet, will be featured in her forthcoming 3D film “Katy Perry: Part of Me.”
