NFL Super Bowl 51 halftime show to feature Lady Gaga

The NFL Super Bowl attracts close to a 100 million audience on the US television network

Pop music singer Lady Gaga is all set to headline the National Football League (NFL) Super Bowl 51 halftime show in February 2017, the NFL and Pepsi confirmed on Thursday.

The 6-time Grammy Award winner who is known for songs such as Poker Face, Bad Romance, and Born This Way will entertain the crowd by taking the stage on February 5 in Houston, Texas in the United States of America. Gaga is set to take the Super Bowl by storm for the second time in a row, having sung the USA national anthem at NFL Super Bowl 50 last year in San Francisco, California in the USA.

The NFL Super Bowl is the most-watched event on the USA television network that attracts close to a 100 million TV audience and some prominent previous halftime headliners include the Rolling Stones, Madonna, U2. While last season’s Super Bowl halftime show was headlined by Coldplay and it also featured Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
