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.

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.
