It's Official: Katy Perry to Headline Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show

Katy Perry Super Bowl XLIX

Baby you’re a firework the official halftime act for Super Bowl XLIX!

Confirming previous reports, NBC announced on Sunday that pop singer Katy Perry will headline the 2015 Bowl’s mid-game show.

Bob Costas revealed the news during the Sunday Night Football Cowboys-Giants match-up.

In October, Billboard magazine reported that the “Teenage Dream” singer had signed on as the main act, and that she’d been on a short list that included Rihanna and Coldplay.

Per the NFL, more than 115 million viewers in the United States watched last year’s halftime show, which featured Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Super Bowl XLIX will be broadcast Sunday, Feb. 1, on NBC. The game will be held at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona.

Does the announcement make you “Roar” with joy or anger? Press PLAY on the video below to watch Perry “prepare” for her performance in a Pepsi spot released Sunday night, then hit the comments and tell us about it!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Did she have to pay for the honor since the NFL was asking for that?

  2. Leigh says:

    Oh no. If she behaves anything like she did on ESPN Game Day this is going to be a huge disappointment for fans. :(

  3. Tran says:

    Hope there won’t be a wardrobe malfunction like Janet Jackson nor a blackout like Beyonce during Katy Perry’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. Disappointment or not, who knows come February 1st.

  4. Bryce says:

    Old news? Or no? I thought this had been confirmed

  5. Bernadine says:

    am i the only one laughing that she is wearing the same top that Andrea Faustini wore on X Factor UK a few weeks ago? ha

  6. I.R.E. says:

    What about Lady Gaga?

  7. Will says:

      Katy Perry-she actually gets paid for what she does. Got to be kidding for Super-Bowl half-time. I will be muting the half-time show. All her songs sound the same.

  8. Oswald says:

    I don’t mind her music but this isn’t the stage for pop music. I would rather see some rock or country acts perform. How about Foo Fighters or Kenny Chesney? I mean geez, this makes me instantly turn the station at halftime.
