In the segment, Perry played a 16-year-old library volunteer who was a guest on a fictional talk show titled "Bronx Beat." Her character wore a revealing Elmo shirt that exposed a lot more cleavage than was seen in her Sesame Street video co-starring Elmo that angered so many parents. Perry's character said she was embarrassed because the library ordered her to wear loose-fitting clothes, but the hosts reassured her that she should be proud of her breast size. She also starred in an Andy Samberg digital short in which she sang the theme song to a fictional movie titled "Boogerman" at an awards show.

By comparison, Taylor Swift's guest appearance on CSI last year attracted nearly 21 million viewers. Bieber is set to return to the series later this season.
