Lady Gaga To Perform During Super Bowl Halftime Show
Although the two teams that will be playing in Super Bowl LI won’t be decided for months, the halftime performer is set.
Lady Gaga performed the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 last year, but this time she will have the halftime stage to herself.
The “Perfect Illusion” singer announced the exciting news in an Instagram post Thursday. “It’s not an illusion. The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA!”
“It’s a done deal! I can’t wait to rock for YOU from Houston!” Gaga captioned another post.
Lady Gaga delivered an incredible national anthem performance last year, which she called “a dream come true,” so it’s not surprising the NFL gave her a nod for halftime this February.
“I’ve always wanted to sing the National Anthem at a major sporting event since I was a little girl, and for it to be the Super Bowl, it is the ultimate,” Gaga told NFL.com. “This is one of the highest honors of my career.”
“This is one of the highest honors of my career.”

Super Bowl LI is scheduled to be played at Houston’s NRG Stadium on Feb. 5, 2017.
