Katy Perry says her Super Bowl halftime show guest performer is “a throwback of sorts that definitely needed some more shine.”
In addition to an appearance from rocker Lenny Kravitz, it’s been revealed that Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime performance will also feature a guest appearance from Missy Elliott.
The pop star made the announcement that an “old school” female artist would be joining her at the Super Bowl during a press conference.
“I wanted to bring someone back,” Perry said. “A throwback of sorts that definitely needed some more shine. All I can say is it will be a real female fun night. It’s a bit old school. When this person enters the stage and you hear the first ring of the chord I think jaws will drop and faces will melt.”
Although the Associated Press reports that Missy will appear as a guest performer during the halftime show, the news has yet to be confirmed by the NFL.
Both Missy Elliott and Katy Perry previously worked together on a remix to Perry’s 2011 record, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).”
Super Bowl XLIX will air on Sunday, February 1 at 6:30 PM on NBC.
