2013 has been shaping up to become the year with the best TV performances by musicians. With different award shows boasting appearances by some of the biggest names in the music industry, it's been incredibly difficult trying to keep my eyes away from my TV screen. The amount of mesmerizing acts that graced the stage this year are too large for one simple list. However, I will be forever grateful to the internet for allowing audiences everywhere to experience some of these top TV performances by musicians on instant replay.
1. Katy Perry – 2013 Video Music Awards
As a whole, I feel that Katy Perry's performance at the 2013 Video Music Awards was one of the top TV performances by musicians. I felt like one of the luckiest fans in the world when I actually got the chance to go and see Katy Perry perform live right under the Brooklyn Bridge! Donning boxing gear and surrounded by two large gold-dusted Lion sculptures, I was mesmerized by her amazing vocal ability. She was the perfect closing act for the VMAs.
