Katy Perry hits the campaign trail again Saturday, when she will join President Barack Obama in Milwaukee, just days before the election, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The rally will take place at Milwaukee's Delta Center, with doors opening at 11:30 a.m. local time.

Perry opened for the President last week at a campaign event in Las Vegas, where she performed "Let's Stay Together," Part of Me," "Teenage Dream," "Wide Awawke" and "Firework."

Clad in a dress made to look like a voting ballot – that of course had the Obama and Biden ticket ticked – Perry said during the performance, "You know, I've got my poll outfit sorted. When I go the polls in California, it's going to be on point. It's going to be red, white and blue, for you-know-who. So you'd better do it, or I'm going to come and get you."

Perry's first appearance with the president came at a Los Angeles fundraiser earlier in October, alongside Stevie Wonder, Jon Bon Jovi and Jennifer Hudson. No word on whether or not Perry plans to paint Obama's portrait on her fingernails again for the Milwaukee rally.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
