Gaga to head­line Su­per Bowl half­time

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — E! News

It’s of­fi­cial: Lady Gaga will head­line the 2017 Su­per Bowl half­time show at NRG Sta­dium in Hous­ton on Feb. 5.

The singer an­nounced via Twit­ter on Thurs­day that she will be per­form­ing: “It’s not an il­lu­sion. The ru­mors are true,” she wrote in a tweet. “This year the SU­PER BOWL goes GAGA!”

This Su­per Bowl won’t be Gaga’s first big game. She sang the na­tional an­them at the Su­per Bowl this year in Santa Clara, Calif. Bey­once, Bruno Mars and Cold­play head­lined the half­time show. Per­form­ing her hit “For­ma­tion,” Bey­once’s dancers were dressed Black Pan­thers-es­que, be­com­ing part of a show that made waves for its po­lit­i­cal mes­sag­ing.

No word yet on who else will join Gaga for her half­time per­for­mance at Su­per Bowl LI.

Last year’s Su­per Bowl, a 24-10 vic­tory by the Den­ver Bron­cos over the Carolina Pan­thers, was the third­most-watched in the his­tory of the game, av­er­ag­ing 111.9 mil­lion to­tal view­ers, ac­cord­ing to Nielsen. View­er­ship peaked at 115.5 mil­lion dur­ing the half­time show.

Past half­time per­form­ers in­clude Katy Perry, Michael Jack­son, Janet Jack­son with Justin Tim­ber­lake, Brit­ney Spears, Paul McCart­ney, Bruce Spring­steen, the Rolling Stones and Madonna.

The Su­per Bowl airs on Fox.
