Sometimes, big theatrical staging for a live performance can pay off big time. Other times, it comes out looking like something Andrew Lloyd Webber tossed off on a bad day. That's the only way to describe Katy Perry and Juicy J's performance of "Dark Horse," which badly wanted to evoke a Halloween feel with its red-eyed horse, flames, stage fog and creepy trees. When you succeed in making Robin Thicke and Chicago's performance of "Blurred Lines" seem classy in comparison, there's something wrong.
