Forget the game, the highlight of the 2017 Super Bowl is going to be Lady Gaga's halftime show. Football is great and all, but nothing is as cool as a live Gaga performance. Since she did land the biggest gig around, Lady Gaga is already prepping for her Super Bowl performance. The talented star took to Instagram to share a rehearsal photo, giving her devoted Little Monsters a taste of what she has in store for Super Bowl LI.
Lady Gaga's rehearsal area appears to be massive in the photo. She is surrounded by her crew and musicians, and seems to be in deep discussion. She is also either holding a football shaped microphone or a tea kettle — feel free to discuss. One thing is certain, Lady Gaga is clearly already getting in the Super Bowl spirit from the looks of her outfit. She's wearing a red tracksuit with her own number — 16. Yeah, there is no doubt she is going to make halftime rock.
In September, Lady Gaga announced her Super Bowl gig, shortly before her fifth studio album, Joanne, dropped. There is no word yet on whether Gaga will be exclusively performing songs from Joanne or pulling from her classics during the show as well, but no matter what songs she chooses, the show is sure to be the highlight of the night. No one will ever accuse the singer of being boring, and she always gives her performances 100 percent.
While the teams set to play in this year's Super Bowl have yet to be decided, the game is just 30 days away. If Lady Gaga is nervous, she's definitely not letting on — her photo is captioned, "30 days till #superbowl #halftime #gaga." The game is set for Sunday, Feb. 6, and while the commercials are usually a big deal, I suspect Gaga and whatever coolness she has planned for halftime will upstage the ads this year.
With any luck, Lady Gaga will use her halftime performance as a chance to announce a new tour as well. She did a small scale set of appearances at bars across the country to promote Joanne, but fans are itching to bask in the full Gaga experience with an official tour. Whether she plans on taking her music on the road soon or not, at least Gaga is giving her fans a good reason to tune in this year, regardless of whether their team is in the game.
