Lady Gaga will headline the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show.
After much speculation, the NFL and Pepsi made the announcement prior to Thursday’s Miami Dolphins – Cincinnati Bengals game.
The 30-year-old singer has been signed up to perform at the 51st Super Bowl at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on February 5, 2017, one year after she sang the American National Anthem at the annual NFL event.
Gaga will follow in the footsteps of Coldplay, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, who have all recently headlined the halftime show.
She said: “This is one of the highest honours 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.”
Gaga recently released the “Perfect Illusion” which is the first single from her upcoming album Joanne due out on October 21.
