Katy Perry gives credit where credit is due.

Before performing her new hit single "Rise," the 31-year-old singer delivered a powerful speech about the importance of voting during the final night of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday. Apparently, she got a little help from someone close to her heart -- her boyfriend, Orlando Bloom.

While Perry didn't mention his name on stage, she later took to Twitter to reveal the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales actor was the real genius behind some of her inspiring words at the convention.

During Perry's speech, HelloGiggles co-founder Sophia Rivka Rossi live-tweeted a key line-- "It's not where you come from but what you grow into" -- tagging the pop star and using the hashtag "#DNCinPHL."

Perry responded a few hours later, writing, "Lando put that one in" with a red heart emoji.

And although many thought "Lando" may have also put a ring on it -- Perry was rocking a band on that finger Thursday night! -- a source close to the pop star confirmed to ET that they're not engaged.

But who needs an engagement ring to prove love is real? Not these two!

Fans in the crowd caught Bloom being extra adorable, taking out his cell phone during Perry's speech to record her celebratory moment. They were also spotted holding hands backstage.

According to an eyewitness, "they both definitely were happy to be there together."

"Katy's eyes conveyed her emotions," the eyewitness added. "Orlando was happy. You could tell."
