After rumors circulated that Katy Perry would be hosting the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show Feb. 1, the NFL confirmed that she would be the main performer during an “unprecedented multimedia, global announcement” Sunday night.

Perry, who is currently touring in Australia, tweeted about watching the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys face off with her band when she personally confirmed the news.

Sorry, Weird Al.

Perry is currently one of the biggest musicians in the world, and she’s also the most-followed person on Twitter.

NBC Sports’ Bob Costas made the announcement during Sunday Night Football’s halftime show, and Pepsi, the Super Bowl halftime show’s sponsor, has already started to release videos advertising the show.

The first one came out Sunday night and features Perry already hard at work planning the sort of stunts to wow millions.

Perry’s show is bound to be insane and we’ll likely be talking about it the following morning, but she had me at kittens.
