U.S. artist Katy Perry thrilled millions at America’s biggest annual sporting event, with her Superbowl halftime show on Sunday, sparking a flood of comments on social media.

 

Perry, who performed in the United Arab Emirates in 2012, made a grand entrance in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium to at least 60,000 spectators. Additionally, millions of people watched the match on media around the world, the annual championship game of the National Football League.

She opened with her hit single “Roar” as she made her way onto the stage on top of a giant puppet lion.
