World News Pop star Katy Perry reportedly in discussions to start at AFL Grand Final Blog

Global pop star Katy Perry is set to shine at one of Australia’s most lavish sporting events, with the popular singer reportedly in advanced negotiations with the AFL to headline the association’s Grand Final Carnival.

The deal, first reported by The Herald Sun, would bring the “Teenage Dream” and “Last Friday Night” singer back to the 100,000-capacity Melbourne Cricket Ground after she performed there in the 2020 T20 Women’s World Cup final between Australia and India.

League spokesman Jay Allen told NewsWire the AFL would confirm the pre-match entertainment program ahead of the Grand Final “shortly”.

“The Toyota AFL Grand Final’s headliners have been world class over the last few years and we are delighted to be able to deliver another spectacular show ahead of the biggest game of the season,” he said.

“We will have an announcement to make about this year’s Telstra pre-game entertainment shortly.”

Exact figures for the deal have not yet been confirmed, but it is believed that the AFL would pay millions to bring the pop icon to the stage of this legendary venue.

The grand finale is scheduled for September 28th.

More than four million people tuned in to watch the 2023 Grand Final between Brisbane and Collingwood.

When she serenades the crowd in September, she would be following in the footsteps of other great entertainers, such as rock legends KISS and The Killers, as well as British pop star Robbie Williams.
