During "Firework," Katy was hoisted up into the dome via a shooting star and her microphone was literally secured to her wrist with a Wii Remote strap. Need further proof? Let's investigate.

It's TOTALLY the same thing. Katy might be the only person ever to have worn that wrist strap in earnest. If you ever find yourself singing into a glitter mic during the finale of your halftime performance, look no further than the strings on your Nintendo nunchakus.
