Lady Gaga's Super Bowl Halftime Gig: Twitter Reacts
Following much speculation, Lady Gaga and the NFL confirmed on Thursday (Sept. 29) that she will be headlining Fox's Super Bowl LI halftime show.
This will be her second time performing at the Super Bowl. The "Perfect Illusion" singer sang the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 in February.
Gaga announced the news on Twitter:
The Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show will take place at NRG Stadium in Houston and airs Feb. 5, 2017, on Fox.
Twitter users -- including Book of Mormon star Josh Gad -- weighed in on the news, with some fans excited to see her performance and others ready for something a bit different at the show. See some of the tweets below.

Ra-ra ah ah ahhhha..Touch Down ooh la laah...— ::Tamara:: (@yeahTam) September 30, 2016
I guess Lady Gaga is a much better choice for the Super Bowl halftime than Coldplay...
LADY GAGA DOING THE SUPER BOWL IS A GUARANTEE THAT 2017 WILL BE BETTER THAN 2016. #GAGASUPERBOWL— Alex Goldschmidt (@alexandergold) September 30, 2016
I really want to go to the @ladygaga concert in Houston in February! Oh there's gonna be football too? Sign me up for reals though!— Frances Key (@FMK88) September 30, 2016
You can say what you want about her, but you can NOT deny her ability to put on a show. If you want proof, help yourself. #GAGASUPERBOWL— a (@gagaoula) September 30, 2016
is gaga performing just dance and poker face on loop for 12 minutes or will it be another David Bowie tribute— (@hiscologne) September 30, 2016
Thanks Adele for turning down the halftime gig so we could listen to Gaga instead— Trevor Berg (@Trevorberg) September 30, 2016
Please explain to me who could possibly be more talented than Gaga in the music industry right now that would be a better act for the SB???— Joanna (@joannalopez16) September 30, 2016
Gaga for halftime show? Really? Blehhhhhhhhhh . Bring beyonce and bruno mars again please.— Jorge Gonzalez (@jorgeglez818) September 30, 2016
If Gaga does SB, she will go full out! Just imagine that show!! #GagaSuperBowl— Divan (@HausOfDivan) September 18, 2016
I have a feeling the #GAGASUPERBOWL is going to suspiciously sound a lot like Madonna's 2012 halftime show...— Carolyn Bergier (@TGICarolyn) September 30, 2016
I can't believe after all those years of hoping and praying to see Gaga on the Super Bowl Halftime stage, it's finally going to happen pic.twitter.com/0mXHPakmuR— Lady Gaga (@gagamonster96) September 30, 2016
Not here for this decision. I don't dislike Gaga, it's just a no for me. https://t.co/7l99ATBcWn— Melanie Kennedy (@TV_Melanie) September 30, 2016
