Greatest entrance in Super Bowl halftime history? Yeah, Katy Perry now owns that honor after rolling into University of Phoenix Stadium on a giant, golden mechanical Tiger.

Or a lion, maybe, which would have been the first time a Lion ever made it into the Super Bowl. (Sorry, Detroit.)

She also nails the extra point for making light of the Super Bowl's No. 1 storyline all week.

Perry's entrance outfit also bore an uncanny resemblance to WWE legend Bam Bam Bigelow.

That, or Chester Cheetah.

But while Perry nailed her turn in the Super Bowl spotlight, and maybe set a new record for most wardrobe changes in 12 minutes (move over, Diana Ross), Missy Elliott definitely stole the show.

Of course, a lot of Katy Perry fans may not know who Missy Elliott is. Or Lenny Kravitz, who dueted with Perry on I Kissed a Girl.  

Perry's set also included her hits Dark HorseTeenage Dream and California Girls, for which she danced with sharks and a few singing palm trees. 

Perry closed out the show riding on a star across the stadium while belting out her anthem of empowerment, Firework.

Look familiar?
