Missy Elliott to join Katy Perry on stage during Super Bowl half-time show

Perry will perform during game between New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks on February 1

Katy Perry will be joined by Missy Elliott during her Super Bowl XLIX halftime show performance, according to reports.

Perry will become the latest act to play during the biggest event in the American Football calendar on Sunday (February 1). According to The Assosciated Press, Elliott will join Perry during the performance with an anonymous “person famiiar with the plans” cited as a source.

Earlier this year it was revealed that Lenny Kravitz will also appear with Perry. It is believed they will sing his single ‘American Woman’ together.

Speaking in a press conference prior to her appearance at the Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona Perry hinted at a guest that could well be Missy Elliott. She told reporters that she will be joined by an “old school” female artist. “When you hear the first ring of the chord,” Perry said, “I think jaws will drop and faces will melt.” Perry previously worked with Elliott on a remix of the 2011 single ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)’

Perry previously insisted that she did not pay to secure her position as the headliner of this year’s Super Bowl half-time show. Reports claimed that the NFL invited the management of Coldplay, Katy Perry and Rihanna to submit bids if they wanted to appear at the 2015 event, which attracts a US TV audience of over 110m and global media attention.
