Well, move over Kim Kardashian and Beyonce! Katy Perry just might break the Internet.
The “California Girl” performed at halftime of tonight’s Big Game on Super Bowl Sunday, and it was filled with numerous costume changes, multiple songs and fireworks, of course.
The pop star was joined by rocker Lenny Kravitz, as well as rapper Missy Elliott during her 12-minute performance.
Perry’s show was heavy on the spectacle. She brought out dancing sharks, fake palm trees and wild animals, like the lion she rode in on.
“I’m the only person in Super Bowl history to bring a lion and sharks to the show,” Perry boasted this week, although that first part is more the fault of Matthew Stafford and Barry Sanders than anything.
Perry appeared to sing much of performance live, thought she avoided any of the usual absurd lip syncing controversy by admitting this week that some of her vocals would be prerecorded given all her movement. She stuck to her hits, unlike Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones, who all chose to play material unknown to most fans.
One thing we know for sure: Perry’s halftime show is a moment she will never forget.
