The NFL has announced that pop singer Katy Perry will be the headliner for the Super Bowl halftime show in February on NBC, according to NBC News.

Perry, 30, joins the likes of Madonna, Beyonce, and Prince to perform at the most-watched U.S. sporting and television event, said the NFL.

Sportscaster Bob Costas announced the performance at halftime of the Cowboys-Giants game on “Sunday Night Football.”

Perry acknowledged the announcement on her Twitter feed while watching the game in Australia, where she is currently on tour.

Following in the show-stopping dance steps of Bruno Mars from this year might be a tall order. But Perry says she’s already planning her own fireworks.

“I’ve got some insane ideas this year,” she said in a video posted soon after the announcement. “What if we covered the stadium with glitter?

“But the glitter … was edible.”

The Super Bowl will be played on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Arizona, and will air on NBC.  So, make sure you tune in to KFOR!
