5 Artists Who Should Join Katy Perry's Halftime Show

Now that we know Katy Perry will officially be performing at the 2015 halftime show, I'm starting to wonder how the show will go down. I imagine it'll be something whimsical, colorful, and possibly include food (see: "California Gurls," "This Is How We Do," "Birthday").

But will the performance itself include special guests, or will Katy fly solo? And if it does include special guests, will they make logical sense (like when Beyonce teamed up with Destiny's Child or Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson performed together), or will it be some kind of weird hodgepodge of performers (like Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, or the Aerosmith/'N Sync/Britney Spears/Mary J. Blige/Nelly line-up)?

Here are some of the people I'd love to make an appearance during Katy's halftime show.

#1 Kanye West

Because I'm a big Kanye fan, so I'd love it if he showed up during the halftime show to perform "E.T." with Katy Perry. But I know that probability is low. The song is relatively old, it wasn't that popular, Kanye's got his own stuff going on, and I'm not really sure playing second fiddle to Katy Perry is exactly in Kanye's wheelhouse. Still, an appearance by Yeezus isn't impossible... even if it is unlikely.

#1 (Maybe ever). Odell Beckham Jr. vs. the Cowboys

Wow. The catch that Odell Beckham made in their Week 12 game vs. the Cowboys on Sunday night was one of the those plays that transcends sports and has been described as one of the best plays in sports history, not just football. LeBron James took notice. So did Mike Trout. As did fellow wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jeremy Maclin. Get ready to see replays of the catch, because it will be shown for years to come.

#2. Rob Gronkowski vs. the Broncos

Prior to Beckham's catch, the best one-handed grab of the year belonged to Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. Against the Denver Broncos in Week 10, Gronk snagged ball out of the air with his left hand and was nearly able to find his way into the end zone (one play later, he caught a touchdown pass). In the weeks since the catch, Tom Brady has said that it was the greatest catch he had ever seen on one of his passes. Randy Moss disagreed.

Katy Perry Releases Super Bowl Halftime Show Teaser

Over the weekend, it was confirmed that Katy Perry will be doing the halftime show at the 2015 Super Bowl. And she's already released a teaser (thanks, Pepsi) for what we can (kind of) expect. I'm rooting for the edible pink glitter idea.

What do you think Katy has in store for her halftime show?

Pitch Perfect 2

If you'd asked me if I ever thought a movie about competitive a capella groups on a college campus would be a big deal, I would've probably laughed. And yet, "Pitch Perfect" became one of those movies pretty much everyone loves (or at least knows of), so it's no surprise that a sequel was made. This week, the trailer to the highly anticipated second film (simply called "Pitch Perfect 2") was released. It stars all of the fan favorites from last time, including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, and Elizabeth Banks, as the Barden Bellas compete in an international competition. Check it out!

Yesterday, Cher announced that she will be canceling the remainder of her current Dressed to Kill Tour. The cancellation comes after a recommendation from her doctors, who told the singer she needed more time to recover from a viral infection she developed prior to starting this leg of the D2K tour.

Several shows on the tour had been rescheduled, with a handful of shows also getting canceled last week. In a press release from Cher's camp, Cher said, ""I am totally devastated. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets. I'm so proud of this show. It is my best ever. I sincerely hope that we can come back again next year and finish what we started."

On Twitter, the singer apologized to her fans,and said she felt "gut wrenching [s]adness" at the realization that she wouldn't be able to finish the tour.

The canceled dates — plus the tweets from Cher — can be found below the cut. Get well soon, Cher!
