With ‘Teenage Dream’ inevitably becoming her third #1, Katy Perry hit Budapest, Hungary last week, to shoot the music video for her upcoming third single, ‘Firework’, lifted off Teenage Dream.

Earlier in August, she described the concept of the video as ‘serious and moving’ at Sunrise, while promoting the release of Teenage Dream in Australia. It was previously stated she was running a contest across Europe to feature the winners in the video, but she apparently selected many, as a crowd wave their hands, clap cheerfully and dance in a carefree manner on the set.

Perry got emotional at the sight of the featured fans enthusiastically throwing and clapping their hands in the air, as the uplifting lyrics and impeccable production of her personal favorite track from the album played loudly in the background.

Everything was being filmed, but it seemed fans were rehearsing before actually shooting with Katy; the video has been also been shot overnight, and further described by Perry herself via her twitter account as ‘a LIGHT in a dark place’.

No official premiere has been announced, nor a slated date for the single release. It is only known ‘Firework’ is scheduled to be released sometime in October.

Aside shooting the video, Katy has also been promoting her new album in Germany by stopping on Wetten Dass?, to perform ‘Teenage Dream’ in an amazingly lit purple-pink stage set-up. She has also been headlining a promotional mini-tour across Europe performing album cuts.
