Katy Perry

Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show

"Katy Perry justified the NFL’s trust in her with a dynamic, wild show that traded the technical song-and-dance competence ... for an emphasis on showmanship. Perry didn’t miss a step or a note, and her act was notable ... for its sheer humor.
Katy’s sense of theatrics is what made her halftime show—dare I say it—the best halftime show there ever was. Halftime shows are to concerts what the Fast & Furious franchise is to cinema, and given that when Katy emerged in all her glory she looked like the painted side of one of Dominic Toretto’s cars, it’s safe to say she delivered on the promise of high-octane spectacle.
