Katy Perry rallied the youth vote today in Des Moines, Iowa, where she performed at a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton. She coordinated with her patriotically themed surroundings in a white strapless Michael Costello gown and handmade, crystal-studded American-flag cape, which she paired with a red and blue turban.
The afternoon's uplifting set list included "Firework" and "Roar," the latter of which has become one of Hillary's go-to anthems on the campaign trail.
The pop star also encouraged the crowd to get out and vote—particularly for the candidate in question.
"You have so much power and this is one of the most important elections in over a decade. So much change can happen," Perry said. "I stand and I march with Hillary. I believe in her future, her vision. I believe in her policies. I believe in equal rights for men, women, pay...Thank you for having me, she's my firework."
Perry kicked off the exciting day by commandeering Hillary's Instagram account before tonight's "J-J" dinner for thousands of Iowa Democrats whom the presidential hopeful is trying to woo into her corner ahead of the ever-important Iowa caucus on Feb. 1.
"Katy Perry here, taking over Hills' IG today for the rally in Iowa. The stage is set, and the nails are pressed. �� T-minus 1.5 hours before we Roar together. #ImWithHer -Katy," she captioned a pic of her patriotic, 2016-themed manicure.
Clinton's remaining Democratic primary competitors, Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, are in town too, but "Hills" is the only one who's got a former president (her husband, of course) and this year's Super Bowl headliner at her party.
The Perry concert was also a part of the first rally led by Bill Clinton on the campaign trail so far this year.
Not that Bernie Sanders has been without musical accompaniment: Last night, Bernie's All-Star Band headlined a Rockin' the Bern concert in Davenport and he shed the suit and tie and wore a sweater. (And yes, happily reminded us of our grandfather.)

Meanwhile, though O'Malley is apparently a Taylor Swift fan, he has yet to secure her for any campaign events. (Though this Iowa dinner is obviously the one that would have sent the real message...)

Katy Perry's just one of the celebs who totally lost it over Adele's new song!
