Katy Perry uses 'Saturday Night Live' to bounce back from 'Sesame Street' flap [video] [poll]

September 27, 2010 |  9:27 am

Katy Perry hit the "Saturday Night Live" season premiere this weekend, bouncing back from her recent Elmo issues in a big way. Those of "Sesame Street" viewing age might want to, um, skip the video above. Past your bedtime and all that.

"It looks like today's show is brought to you by the number 38 and the letter double-D," Amy Poehler quipped in the "Bronx Beat" sketch with Maya Rudolph, about a young volunteer whose over-the-summer blossoming has gotten her into some trouble at the library.

(See the "Sesame Street" video of Perry with Elmo here.)

Perry was the musical guest on the show's season opener, performing "California Gurls" and "Teenage Dream."

Watch the video and tell us in comments if you think the comparison of Katy's cleavage with the gory visuals on shows like "CSI" is a valid one.
