NFL finally announces Katy Perry as next Super Bowl halftime performer




Katy Perry, as long rumored, will headline the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show on Feb. 1, 2015, following in the recent footsteps of Bruno Mars, Beyoncé and Madonna.
The NFL announced the news Sunday night on NBC, confirming that all eyes will be on Perry during the big showdown at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Her setlist and guest performers will undoubtedly remain under wraps until closer to game day, but having attended a Perry concert in October, anticipate a wild medley filled with fireworks during empowering hit "Firework," elaborate outfits on her and her dancers (maybe cat onesies), stages that rise up, high-flying stunts, and possibly animals during "Roar."
Last year, Bruno Mars had the most-watched half-time show ever with115.3 million viewers, beating out Beyonce's 2013 halftime show, which attracted 110.5 million viewers.
With her massive following — Perry is the most-followed Twitter user in the world with more than 60 million followers — she'll likely attract significant viewership. Additionally, she has 76 million fans on Facebook. Don't think for a second that the NFL didn't consider this.
Pepsi, the halftime show's sponsor, unveiled its first two Katy Perry-themed commercials (above and below) after Bob Costas announced her involvement Sunday.

The 30-year-old singer is known for turning her live sets into costly spectacles (see examples, below). Here are our predictions for her Super Bowl guest performers:

  • 1. Ferras

    Why? Ferras is the first musician Katy Perry signed when she launched her record label, Metamorphosis, in June. They have a duet on his self-titled EP called "Legends Never Die."

  • 2. Kacey Musgraves

    Why? Country singer Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry teamed up for CMT Crossroads, where the duo sang each other's songs like Perry's "Roar" and "Firework."

  • 3. Juicy J

    Why? Juicy J is featured on on Katy Perry's "Dark Horse," which won Best Video at the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards.

  • 4. Rihanna

    Why? Rihanna is one of Katy Perry's celebrity friends. A surprise appearance from Rihanna would be a big jab at the NFL, who in September were embroiled in a beef with Rihanna over using her song "Run This Town" in an ad.

  • 5. and 6. Sara Bareilles AND Tegan and Sara

    Why? Despite drama over comparisons between Katy Perry's "Roar" and Sara Bareilles' "Brave," the two have shared the stage to perform "Roar." Meanwhile, Tegan and Sara, who also joined Perry and Bareilles for the "Roar" performance, have been the openers for some of Perry's Prismatic World Tour stops.

  • 7. Riff Raff

    Why? Riff Raff was Katy Perry's date to the MTV Video Music Awards in August. They could advance their friendship into a duet at the Super Bowl, hopefully sans their all-denim outfits.

  • 8. Taylor Swift

    Why? What better way for Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to end their public feud than to join hands at the world's biggest music event at the Super Bowl. They could perform Swift's "Bad Blood" as a mashup with one of Perry's tunes.

  • 9. Jodi DiPiazza

    Why? Remember when Katy Perry performed with Jodi DiPiazza, a girl with autism, in 2012 during Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars"? How beautiful would it be if they reprised their performance at the Super Bowl? We can dream.
  • Here are a few performances to give you a glimpse of what she and her team are capable of producing, which you might see during next year's halftime show:
    • 'Dark Horse' at the 2014 BRIT Awards
