Katy Perry Witness World Wide live stream

The production company behind Big Brother USA is live streaming Katy Perry’s life this weekend in a promotional stunt to launch the global superstar’s new album ‘Witness’.

Taking the name of the record literally, ‘Witness World Wide’ gives the pop icon’s fans the chance to watch her every move 24 hours a day as she takes part in her own Big Brother-style reality show, airing live on her YouTube page.

Over the weekend, Katy is living in a nine-room house rigged with 41 cameras – but unlike BB, she is not cut off from the outside world, as she is being joined by a host of special guests including Sia, RuPaul and America Ferrera.

The four-day event began yesterday and culminates on Monday with an intimate concert in Los Angeles, which will be shown on the stream.

It is being overseen by Fly On The Wall Entertainment, Endemol Shine’s production partner for Big Brother USA, run by the show’s long-time executive producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan.

Witness World Wide has a similar set-up to the BBUSA live feeds, with four separate streams covering different cameras, as well as a fifth ‘quad cam’ view showing all of them as a split screen.

The ‘Chained To The Rhythm’ singer posted a short video on her Twitter page (embedded above) showing the gallery and control room for the broadcast.

Live feeds are considered an essential feature of the Big Brother format, but while the UK version has all but abandoned them, they remain a staple in the US.

For $5.99 a month, its viewers get access to the five feeds and a ‘flashback’ function, allowing them to rewind to any point in the season.

Big Brother USA returns to CBS for its nineteenth season on 28th June.
