Who did it better? Katy Perry or Grace Jones

Katy Perry performed her new hit 'Roar' at the VMAs. But it was brought to my attention (Thanks Belasco) that someone did a similar performance before Katy.

That someone is Grace Jones

Watch Katy's performance

Now watch Grace

I like Grace's performance

Vik-Tor, I'm probably dating myself horribly by saying I saw this when it originally aired and it freaked me out and fascinated me at the same time. Grace had several edgy performances on 'The Midnight Special' that were classic and would be seen no where else. Prince, David Bowie, etc all performed grittier stuff on MNS, before going on to be very mainstream in the 80's. Most of those performances were more compelling on any given Friday night episode than most of the performances on these awards shows ever are.
