Katy Perry might win an Emmy before she ever wins a Grammy. And it's all thanks to Left Shark.

The singer received an Emmy nomination this week for her Super Bowl halftime performance, of which Left Shark, the lovable back-up dancer with two left fins, was the undeniable MVP. But rather than let any bad blood stew with Left Shark over stealing the show, Perry graciously thanked the maritime magnate for all that he did for her career.

"Um..Woke up to my first Emmy nomination for the Halftime show!!! V proud of everyone involved especially #leftshark," she tweeted.
