After performing "It's a Motherfucker" from the Eels' 2000 album Daisies of the Galaxy, Perry remarked, "I love that song. I've told you over and over again I love that song... Someday I wanted to sing that song. Tonight was the first time I ever sang it. You know, I don't know why the Eels don't do my music." To that, E replied, "We were just waiting for you." Then, they launched into the Journey classics "Open Arms" and "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'." No joke.
Given the emotional weight of both parties involved, it was no stretch to get the audience on board for this collaboration. You can hear them singing heartily along for the latter song.
