Is Lady Gaga playing 2017’s Super Bowl Halftime Show?

She'd follow in the footsteps of artists including Beyoncé, Madonna and Coldplay

Lady Gaga is reportedly “in talks” to play next year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The annual sporting event – traditionally the most-watched broadcast of the year on US TV – has in recent years attracted performances from a range of A-list artists, including Coldplay, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Madonna and Bruno Mars.

Last month (August) Adele revealed that she turned down an offer to perform at next year’s event, telling fans: “Come on that show, is not about music.”


Now Billboard reports that Gaga is in discussions to perform at the NG Stadium in Houston, Texas on February 5. NFL bosses are said to have been impressed with the way she sang ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ at last year’s Super Bowl.

When approached by Billboard, an NFL representative remained coy, saying: “We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision. We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”

Lady Gaga dropped her comeback single ‘Perfect Illusion’ last Friday (September 9) and has since said her upcoming album is in its final stages.
