Katy Perry has performed live for the first time since giving birth in August.

The pop star, 36, welcomed daughter Daisy Dove with fiance Orlando Bloom.

She took to the stage at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles and performed an intimate version of her track Only Love from her latest album Smile.

The song explores what Perry would do if she only had one day left to live.

Perry rocked a double-denim look while performing alongside country music star Darius Rucker on a dimly lit stage.

Before the ceremony started, she dedicated the song to her father, sharing a throwback picture of the two.

Perry is a five-time AMA winner and performed for the first time at the ceremony in 2010 when she debuted the smash hit Firework.

She was not the only superstar to take to the stage on Sunday. Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes opened the show, while Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, teen sensation Billie Eilish and Jennifer Lopez all performed.
