Katy Perry hasn't released an album since 2013's Prism, but her return to the Grammys stage is probably a good sign that something new is in the works. The singer — who, to date, has been nominated for 13 Grammys — sang her new single "Chained to the Rhythm," which features Skip Marley, at this year's show.

Perry came out wearing a white pantsuit — pantsuits were a staple on the 2016 campaign trail of Democratic candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — and a "resist" armband, which has become a slogan for those protesting newly inaugurated President Donald Trump. Marley joined her on stage later in the performance while a backdrop depicting the U.S. constitution came on behind them. 

Perry last performed at the ceremony in 2015, singing "By the Grace of God."
