She scores!

Katy Perry performed her first U.S. concert since splitting from hubby Russell Brand in Indianapolis, Ind., Saturday night, delivering a party-starting nine-song set for guests at the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night Hosted by Mark Cuban and Peyton Manning.

And the pop star seemed to have Super Bowl fever: Sporting a glittery, football-themed top and high-cut grey spandex shorts, Perry kicked off the show at 11:45 p.m. by bursting through a banner emblazoned with her name, just like a hometown gridiron hero.

"Who else is excited for Madonna?" she asked later on, referring to Queen of Pop's Sunday halftime show. "That's the only reason that I came!" (Madonna's daughter, Lourdes, was spotted at Perry's concert.)





Perry, 27, made no references to Brand, 36, throughout the set, but she did jokingly give a shout out to one special fellow who was on her mind. "This one goes out to Tim Tebow," she said, before launching into her single "Peacock."

Shaquille O'Neal, Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka were among the celeb guests who caught her set from the side of the stage, while Chris Meloni and Scott Wolf made appearances.

Post-show, Perry partied with her pals in a roped-off area in the center of the room. Says an insider, "She was having the best time and was in such a great mood."
