After the first half of the game, which had the Patriots and Seahawks tied at 14, Katy Perry had a big act to follow. And she didn’t disappoint — if you like giant lions, dancing palm trees, beach balls and sharks. Oh, the sharks.
Hours before her performance, she tweeted: “Today is the day that the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!” We did too, Katy. But here’s what you may have missed:
Sorry, Katniss, but Katy wins
We knew she was going to open with “Roar” (because it made the most sense) but who would’ve known she’d be riding in on a humongous golden lion in a dress that looked like she was catching fire? Katy’s giant stilettos earned her mega bonus points.
She even got a tattoo after it was all said and done
Subtle and perfect.
Lenny Kravitz is 50
That’s right, 50!!! Rock on, Lenny. Rock. On.
Katy wants to be Emboar real bad
Missy Elliott can still work it
Missy KILLED it in and got the crowd hyped up. And where do we even begin to describe her amazing dancers, some of them kids?
The Beach Ball had perfect timing
Thank goodness no dancing raisins came out, though, we might have changed the channel.
Jumping the (Left) Shark
But it was Left Shark who may have stolen the show. Not because he was good (no, no, it was Right Shark who clearly showed up for rehearsals and whose moves were crisp, clean and to the beat). Rather, Left Shark was either out of the water too long or was drunk — simple as that. He tried but just couldn’t keep up. That’s something, right?
Perhaps Katy hired the wrong shark?
Verne Troyer thinks he could’ve done a better job.
Katy ended on a high, familiar note
Just like she began with “Roar,” it only made sense that Perry would finish off with “Firework” and floating around the stadium in that star was quite the way to end.
But we know you were thinking it reminded you of something else. Something you couldn’t quite place from the days of yore…
