The Indian cricketing fraternity has no doubt been eagerly waiting for Katy Perry to land in the country... and she finally has!

The star tweeted, just before her flight took off: "Next stop, Chennai! Can't wait to see you, India."

Perry is very excited about her first performance in the country.

Her tweet on landing read: "After what felt like longest flight ever I'm finally here! Honored 2 play CHENNAI 2morrow! This is my 1ST performance in INDIA! Sometimes Jet lag makes me feel like a cross eyed crack head."

The singer will perform at the inaugural ceremony of the fifth season of cricket's Indian Premier League (IPL).

"Almost fell asleep in my curry last night, no joke. Woke up feeling SO much better after a fresh meditate...feels appropriate being in INDIA," the star tweeted later.

Incidentally, this is not the singer's first visit to the country... she married ex-husband Russell Brand in Jaipur, in 2009.
