Katy Perry's 'SNL' Performance: 'Tone Deaf,' 'Train Wreck,' According to Hulu Tags

Katy Perry appeared on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, making fun of her Sesame Street pseudo-controversy and performing her hits "California Gurls" and "Teenage Dream." Those viewing the episode on Hulu were able to see the tags labeling each segment of the show. The tags of Perry's musical performances were unflattering, to say the least:

According to Hulu's "Help" section, "Tags are keywords or category labels that can help you find videos on Hulu. They also classify videos for later recall." The tags are also user-generated, but have guidelines, including rules against "tags that are inciting or spiteful." Users can flag offending tags for removal from the site by Hulu administrators. Thus far, it appears no one has taken significant issue with the editorializing of Perry's singing.

Here's the clip of Perry singing "California Gurls," for objectivity's sake:
