Recently, we discussed the rumours that Lady Gaga was “in talks” to headline the half time show at the Super Bowl 2017.
At the time, it was Billboard who reported that Gaga was being considered for the headliner for next year’s Super Bowl, who had heard it from an inside source.
Naturally, the NFL didn’t confirm or deny those rumors. But it seems that Billboard’s source was right on the money, as another source has confirmed to Us Weekly that Lady Gaga is indeed the choice for the half time show headliner.
This seems like a solid choice after Gaga’s powerful rendition of the national anthem at this year’s Super Bowl 50. Her performance was met with rave reviews, whereas the headliners of this year’s half time show – Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars – were met with mixed reviews.
At the time, Lady Gaga said of her Super Bowl 50 performance: “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 — 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.”
Of course, there will undoubtedly be other musicians during the coveted half time show spot, but Gaga should get roughly 10 minutes to herself. Now the speculation begins as to what, exactly, she will do with those ten minutes…
