In September it was announced that the pop singer would headline the 2017 halftime show, following up a joint performance last February headlined by Coldplay and featuring Beyoncé and Bruno Mars. Gaga’s fifth studio album, Joanne, debuted on Oct. 21.

Commercials

One of the annual subplots on Super Bowl Sunday is the hotly contested battle for public opinion among the advertisers who shell out for commercial space on the game broadcast. According to CBS, a 30-second commercial spot in Super Bowl 50 cost $5 million, up from $4.5 million in 2015.
