Whether you’re a sports fan or not, the halftime show is always a spectacle that viewers tune in for and anxiously wait for each year.

Perry revealed to Vanity Fair: I wanted to bring someone back,” she told reporters. “A throwback of sorts that definitely needed some more shine. All I can say is it will be a real female fun night.
