Katy Perry’s been teasing an ‘old school’ singer that will join her and previously announced guest Lenny Kravitz during Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show — and according to reports, that guest is Missy Elliott.
Missy Elliott is going to “Work It” at the Super Bowl with Katy Perry.
A person familiar with the plans for Sunday’s halftime show told The Associated Press on Thursday that Grammy winner Elliott is slated to make a surprise appearance during Perry’s performance.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because Elliott’s participation had not been announced by the NFL.
Elliott was featured on a remix of Perry’s song “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” in 2011.
During a news conference Thursday, Perry hinted at Elliott’s involvement in the Super Bowl act, which also will feature Lenny Kravitz.
Perry said the halftime show will include an “old school” female singer — but did not say who that would be.
“When you hear the first ring of the chord,” Perry promised, “I think jaws will drop and faces will melt.”
We’ll have to wait until Sunday to see — but the idea of Missy rocking the Super Bowl stage sounds good to us!
