Pregnant Katy Perry drapes baby bump in shimmery silver dress for Space Launch Live event

Like many Americans, Katy Perry was disappointed that the NASA and SpaceX manned launch set for Wednesday had to be scrubbed due to the weather.

The Roar hitmaker was part of the lineup for the Discovery and Science Channel live programming ahead of the history-making mission.

The heavily pregnant star posted pictures to Instagram from her remote set and wrote in the caption: ‘Welp. Today’s #SpaceLaunchLive was BUMPED due to weather, but what’s two days when @spacex has been waiting for 18 years… Let’s pray it’s in the cards for Saturday!’

She added: ‘Set your alarm for the 3:22pm EDT launch, and don’t miss the pregame with me on @Discovery and @ScienceChannel for a historical moment in space travel.’

As she awaits the birth of her child, Parry is keeping busy with some remote appearances.

She taped a performance of her single Daisies that aired on Wednesday as part of the iHeartRadio Living Room Concert Series.

Perry performed the track at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood where she used to go to try out new songs she had written.

Alongside images of herself at the taping, she shared: ‘About 12 years ago, when I’d write a new song, I would go to @thehotelcafe in Hollywood to work it out in front of an audience that wasn’t Kitty Purry.

‘When @iheartradio invited me to do their Living Room Concert Series, I decided to take it back to my extended living room where it all started.’
