“Attack, my chilly ones!!!” We have to say, Katy Perry made for quite an intense snow-person at KIIS FM’s annual Jingle Ball on Sunday. Like her song, the singer was both hot and cold in her Frosty get-up, forgoing the corn cob pipe and a button nose for some killer curves. We don’t know about you, but we think a snowman sergeant would have been a nice costume addition to her spot in VH1 Diva’s Salute The Troops.
Katy was just one of the many stars who performed at the holiday themed concert this year. The stage was jam-packed with some of the hottest hip-hop stars around, including Nelly, b.O.b, Taio Cruz, and so many more. Also joining in for some seasonal cheer was fellow Diva Haley Williams, Selena Gomez, Enrique Iglesias. Check out the gallery below to see who else caught the holiday spirit!

VH1 Divas Salute The Troops was chock-full of stellar performances, spectacular visuals (hello, synced fireworks!) and lots and lots of sex appeal. Keri Hilson‘s gyrating hips, Katy Perry‘s relentless curves and Grace Potter‘s soon-to-be legendary legs were responsible for bib-necessary droolage. We can’t even imagine how the Marines coped in person. Check out our top ten sexiest moments – even Nicki Minaj‘s cotton candy-esque wig made the cut! Yum! [Photos: Getty Images]
While this video isn’t exactly a performance, it’s the first actual footage to be released that will air as part of VH1 Divas Salute the Troops — and it gives a good hint as to the show’s overall scope and tone. What we learn is that the Divas’ salute to the troops isn’t just lip service. While the show is headquartered at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego (i.e., Top Gun land), Paramore performs at a real-life military base in Kuwait.
And Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams‘ pep talk to the troops comes off as genuinely sincere. “I don’t want you to ever forget how much we appreciate what you’re doing,” says Hayley, wearing a sparkling blue bodysuit (eye candy in the middle of the desert!). “When we go back home, you’re not forgotten. We think about you guys all the time and we love you guys.”
Watch the clip above to see the troops eating it up. Bragging rights to anyone who can guess the song Paramore starts to perform. Hint: We’re pretty sure Hayley mentions part of the title in her speech. VH1 Divas Salute the Troops will feature performances by Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Keri Hilson and more. It airs Sunday, Dec. 5 at 9/8c.
