NEW YORK (AP) Will Katy Perry be a firework at the Super Bowl? Will she show them what she's worth? Will she let her colors burst?

NFL announced late Sunday - after rumors swirled for weeks - that the pop star will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 1 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona. It will air on NBC.

Perry, 30, has dominated the Billboard charts since releasing her debut in 2008, including nine No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her sophomore effort, 2010's multiplatinum ''Teenage Dream,'' matched the record Michael Jackson set with ''Bad'' for most songs from a single album to hit No. 1 with five.

Perry released ''Prism,'' another platinum effort, last year. It includes the No. 1 smashes ''Roar'' and ''Dark Horse.''
