Pop singer Katy Perry at her "Witness: The Tour" concert at the Vivint Arena on Friday, Nov. 24, 2017.

Katy Perry’s concert in Salt Lake City gained national attention this weekend but not for her performance.

Perry, who played at the Vivint Arena on Friday night, performed a bulk of her hits, including the ever-popular “Roar.”

During the performance, beach balls painted as eyeballs popped around the crowd. The “Firework” singer kicked the balls into the crowd.

And, well, here’s what happened:

Jordan Hanks, the fan who was hit, described the scene to Uproxx.

“Out of nowhere there were these huge giant blow up eyeballs that were on the stage," Hanks said. "Some people were throwing them around, but one landed right by Katy and she kicked it! I didn’t realize that she was kicking it right at my face until it was too late.

"The ball hit me right square in the face and knocked my phone out of my hands. I was so shocked and started laughing hysterically. Everyone around me asked me if I was okay and I was just laughing uncontrollably. My phone died shortly after, so once I got home and charged it I watched the video and it was hilarious.”

Perry’s performance Saturday night was a little different than fans might have anticipated. As our review explained, Perry called her mom and invited a “hot dad” on stage, which was all a part of the theatrics for the concert.

Her performance was another example of how Perry, who just turned 33, has matured since she dropped her first album in 2008.
