(Undated)  —  Katy Perry now holds the record for the most-watched Super Bowl halftime show in history.  The pop star’s twelve-and-a-half minute party live from Glendale, Arizona during Sunday’s big game drew a record 118-point-five million viewers for NBC, according to the official numbers from Nielsen.  With the help of Lenny Kravitz and surprise guest Missy Elliott, Katy’s massive production managed to attract over three million more viewers than Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers did last year.  The previous record before Bruno’s was Madonna’s 2012 halftime show with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.  

A record number of viewers tuned into the game, as well.  With more than 114-million overall viewers, Sunday’s game is now the most-watched of Super Bowl of all time.
