— -- Katy Perry's Super Bowl XLIX halftime show had a little bit of everything -- a large lion, dancing life-sized beach balls, a few costume changes and a surprise performance from Missy Elliott.

Perry opened the show riding a huge lion while singing her hit-song "Roar."

Guitarist Lenny Kravitz joined the pop star for "I Kissed a Girl."

When Perry launched into "Teenage Dream," dancing beach balls, surfboards, sharks and even palm trees joined her on stage.

Perry finished the show with an explosive rendition of "Firework" and it was explosive -- with plenty of fireworks taking flight outside the stadium.

The performance came to a crescendo when Perry boarded a shooting star stand that took her above the field and around the University of Phoenix Stadium.
