Following her performance of “The One That Got Away,” the artist received recognition for being the first woman in pop music history to achieve five consecutive chart-topping singles from a single album.
Katy Perry was caught off guard when she received a prestigious award for her outstanding achievements during the American Music Awards last Sunday.
Following her performance of “The One That Got Away” at the AMAs, Heidi Klum awarded the singer for her achievement of being the first female pop artist to have five No. 1 singles from a single album.
During the award ceremony, Perry was completely taken aback by the honor she received. She had previously made history in August by matching Michael Jackson’s record for achieving five consecutive number one singles off her latest album, Teenage Dream. This remarkable accomplishment was made possible by the success of hit songs like “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg, “Firework,” “E.T.” featuring Kanye West, and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F).” Perry’s chart-topping success has been nothing short of impressive.
In September 2010, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.
The American Music Awards, now on its 39th year, is happening at the Nokia Theatre located in downtown Los Angeles and will be broadcasted on ABC.
