A Missy Elliott medley, a male-female duet on "I Kissed a Girl" and a pyrotechnic finale: Katy's Super Bowl performance had it all.
Katy Perry's halftime performance at Super Bowl XLIX, hyped for months and anticipated by millions, did not disappoint. Taking the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz. halfway through the matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, Perry plowed through her plentiful collection of hits with the help of some special guests, Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott.
Wearing a flame-adorned dress (all of Perry's outfits were designed by Jeremy Scott) and her hair in a black ponytail, Perry kicked off the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show perched atop a moving gold tiger, which strolled spectacularly across the field as the pop superstar performed "Roar" live. The stage then became a breathing chessboard for "Dark Horse," another No. 1 hit from Perry's latest album, PRISM. Acrobats flipped beside Perry as the stage turned three-dimensional, and the singer welcomed her first guest: Lenny Kravitz.
