Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz And Missy Elliott Put On Explosive Super Bowl Halftime Show With Dancing Sharks & Palm Trees
Katy Perry put on quite the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday with special guests Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott helping Perry perform a medley of her greatest hits.
Katy Perry Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show
Perry, known for her dramatic flair, began her performance riding in on a giant mechanical lion while singing “Roar.” Perry then sang a bit of her hit “Dark Horse” before inviting Kravitz on stage to perform a rock ‘n roll version of Perry’s breakout “I Kissed A Girl.”
One of the most talked about sequences in Perry’s performance was when she performed “Teenage Dream” and “California Gurls” surrounded by dancing palm trees, surfboards, beach balls and sharks.
Perry’s halftime show, however, really got people talking when Missy Elliott, her not-so-secret guest performer, took to the stage. Twitter lit up with love for the rapper after the first tones of her hit “Get Your Freak On” announced her arrival. Elliott performed a three-minute medley of “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It” and “Lose Control” as Perry danced alongside her.
Finally, Perry closed the show with “Firework.” The singer flew across the stadium on a podium attached to a shooting star – which many noticed resembled the “The More You Know” PSA star.
