Super Bowl Goes Gaga

The mother of monsters and Golden Globe award winner Lady Gaga has officially joined the NFL Halftime team. The singer announced she will perform at the Super Bowl 51 halftime show in 2017.

Gaga took to Twitter to announce the exciting news, “It’s not an illusion. The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA.”

Superbowl 50 saw 114.4 million people view her jaw-dropping national anthem performance.

“After her remarkable performance singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl 50, we are excited to see what she has in store for the world’s biggest stage,” television producer Mark Quenzel said. “Lady Gaga is one of the most iconic and talented artists of this generation.”

Gaga recently released her new single “Perfect Illusion” off her upcoming album, “Joanne.” It hit over 100,000 first week online downloads.

We know Gaga will perform “Perfect Illusion.” What we don’t know is what other songs she will sing. And she has a lot to choose from — her most iconic songs include “Bad Romance,” “Poker Face,” “Telephone,” “Born This Way” and “Just Dance.” This doesn’t include whatever comes from her newest album, releasing Oct. 21.

Another question is who will Lady Gaga perform with?

There’s some speculation Gaga will bring Beyoncé back to the Super Bowl. Her song “Telephone” featured Queen Bee. 

Gaga has the ability to make this halftime show one to remember, whether it be with new music or a featured guest. 

Either way, Gaga will join the ranks of some of the best halftime show performers and musicians in history, like Madonna, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Prince and Michael Jackson.

Gaga is more than excited to perform. 

“This is one of the highest honors of my career. I get a chance to sing for all the athletes who have been working so hard their whole lives for this moment (and) the coaches, as well as the fans in the stands who are waiting for this moment. I think it marks what being an American is all about,” Gaga said.

Catch Gaga Feb. 5, 2017 at the halftime show of Super Bowl 51.
