IT'S OFFICIAL KatyCats! Katy Perry will takeover the half-time show during next year's Super Bowl!
The news came from the NFL Sunday as Katy picked up an American Music Award in a pre-recorded message from Australia where she is on tour.
My band is in the other room screaming at the TV (and each other) over this Cowboys-Giants game. Can’t wait for February 1st... 🎤🏈— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) November 24, 2014
Reports about the singer's participation in next year's Super Bowl surfaced several weeks ago but Sunday's announcement marked the first official announcement from the NFL. Katy will become the third female solo act to headline the halftime show in recent years following Madonna in 2012 and Beyonce in 2013. Bruno Mars headlined the festivities earlier this year.
The Super Bowl will take place February 1st in Glendale, Arizona.
