Lady Gaga to perform at Super Bowl halftime show
Sunday September 18th, 2016

Lady Gaga will headline the halftime show at Super Bowl LI in February, she officially announced on Thursday.

Reports last week surfaced suggesting the pop singer would be handling halftime duties at this year’s game in Houston.

Adele said last month that she turned down the NFL’s offer to perform at the game, though the league said it made no such offer.

Lady Gaga sang the national anthem before Super Bowl 50 last year.

Gaga, 30, has won six Grammy awards in her career. She also won a Golden Globe for her acting in American Horror Story.

Beyonce, Coldplay and Bruno Mars performed at halftime of Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif., last year.
