After much speculation it has finally been confirmed that Lady Gaga will headline the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show.
According to Us Weekly, the Bad Romance singer has officially signed a deal which will see her follow in Beyoncé’s footsteps and perform as lead entertainer at the highly anticipated sporting event which is due to take place in Houston, Texas, on February 5.
While this will be the singer’s first time headlining the show, it will not be her first time performing on the NFL field.
Earlier this year she kicked off Super Bowl 50 with a performance of the US national anthem, a gig she described as “one of the highest honours of [her] career”.
Given that the event’s halftime show is always a major spectacle – and that Lady Gaga is well known for her over the top approach – we can’t wait to see what the star comes up with.
