When Katy Perry announced that she would be playing the Super Bowl halftime show, rumors spread that she’d be bringing along a special guest. Most fans speculated that it would be gal-pal Rihanna that would be joining her on stage.

But an Associated Press source ruined the surprise by leaking the news that Missy Elliot would be Katy Perry’s “surprise” guest. Elliot’s participation hasn’t been announced by the NFL yet, the AP source insisted staying anonymous.

Elliot has been quiet since her 2002 release of “Work It”. She’s made a few appearances here and there, and she’s reportedly working on a new album with Timbaland. Her most recent performance was at Alexander Wang’s H&M line runway show.

While nothing has been officially confirmed yet, Perry did hint at Elliot’s involvement in the Halftime show, which will also include Lenny Kravitz. The “Dark Horse” singer said the show would include an “old school” female singer, but she didn’t confirm who. She did promise that “jaws will drop and faces will melt” when the audience hears the “first ring of the chord”.

Missy Elliot is a multiplatinum rapper, producer and singer who has won Grammy awards for Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Female Rap Solo Performance.

The 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show is a first for Katy Perry who says her 12-minute routine will be inspired by past performers like Madonna and Beyonce. One thing’s for sure, Perry says her performance will have people talking Monday morning. Perry teased that she’ll be the first performer to bring a lion and sharks to the stage. She also announced that Jeremy Scott will be creating all of the costumes for the performance.

While fans may have expected a different female guest, Missy Elliot is a fitting choice. She was featured on Perry’s 2011 remix of her hit “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”.
