“It’s not an illusion,” the pop star tweeted Thursday. “This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA!”
Following much speculation, Lady Gaga and the NFL confirmed on Thursday that she will be headlining Fox’s Super Bowl LI halftime show.
This will be her second time performing at the Super Bowl. The “Perfect Illusion” singer sang the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 last February.
Gaga announced the news on Twitter.
“Lady Gaga is one of the most electric performers of our generation, and we couldn’t be happier with the choice to have her headline the Super Bowl LI Halftime Show,” said John Entz, Fox Sports president and executive producer, in a statement. “It is going to be an incredible night.”
Gaga’s fifth studio album, Joanne, debuts Oct. 21, and she currently stars in Ryan Murphy’s sixth season of American Horror Story. After joining Murphy’s FX anthology series last season, she has appeared in two episodes, so far, of season six as a special guest-star. She won a Golden Globe for her performance as the Countess in AHS season five. Read more
