Los Angeles: Pop star Katy Perry performed her most intimate tune `Wide Awake` suspended in a swing high above the stage at the Billboard Music Awards (BMA).

Dressed like a Victorian bride, the 27-year-old pop star opened up about her split from husband Russell Brand in the lyrics of the heartbreak tune, with sky-high acrobats and dancers, at the Mgm Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, reported a website.

Accepting her Spotlight Award at the beginning of the night, Perry told fans `Wide Awake` was the "most personal" tune she has ever written.

Brand and Perry split late last year and their divorce is expected to be finalised over the summer.
