Football may be the Super Bowl's main attraction, but its halftime show has been known to highjack the spotlight. Last year, Coldplay, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars delivered one of the most epic sets in recent memory, and this time they'll pass the torch to Mother Monster. But who is performing with Lady Gaga at the 2017 Super Bowl? I know you're curious as to exactly how many performances you'll be dancing along to in your living room.
As of now, it looks like the headliner will be going this one alone. Country star Luke Bryan is slated to sing the National Anthem, and SB Nation reports Tony Bennett will make a cameo in an introductory video, but no other entertainers have been confirmed to join Gaga live. Still, that doesn't rule out any surprises.
"For me, it’s all about giving to the fans and bringing people together that wouldn't normally come together," she said in a behind-the-scenes video for Pepsi, though it's unclear whether she was referring to viewers or potential collaborators.
Regardless of who shows up, it's clear Gaga is planning something extravagant. “I want every guy’s girlfriend in his arms … I want every husband and wife kissing … every kid laughing,” she told Radio Disney. “In my mind they’re having this really powerful family experience watching the Super Bowl.”
Plus, if you're a Gaga fan, you should know not to expect anything short of memorable. This is, after all, the woman who was bold enough to cap off her VMAs performance with a faux-blood finale, sing "Born This Way" from an egg, and light a piano on fire at the American Music Awards. Sports Illustrated even reported she's been trying to figure out how to perform from the NRG Stadium roof.
“This is obviously a humongous platform, and this is probably the greatest 12-minutes of our lives,” Gaga's choreographer, Richy Jackson, added of the show to Pepsi. “We’re going to see a humble, appreciative yet showmanship side of Gaga, and we haven’t seen her like this because we haven’t been on a stage like this.”
Her camp has been quiet about what that might entail, and it doesn't seem like they'll be letting out more details any time soon. You'll just have to tune in Feb. 5 at 3:30 p.m on Fox to watch it all unfold.
