Katy Perry to light up Women's T20 World Cup

Renowned popstar Katy Perry has been unveiled as the main performer for next year’s T20 World Cup final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The American songstress is a major addition to the tournament’s closing ceremony, which coincides with International Women’s Day on March 8.

The induction of Perry is aimed at making a new world record for the highest attendance at a women’s sporting fixture and capture the growing interest in women’s cricket. Perry will perform before the match and during the post-game celebrations.

"I'm all about celebrating equality and the achievements of women, which naturally happens on a global scale on International Women's Day," she said expressing her excitement for the event. "It's no coincidence that I said yes to performing live at the women's final on this day,” Perry added.
