After speculative reports earlier this month, Lady Gaga has been confirmed as the Pepsi Halftime Show headliner at the 2017 Super Bowl, according to an NFL news release.
UsWeekly previously reported that the pop singer would be the halftime performer, but the NFL’s senior vice president of communications Natalie Ravitz had said no final decision had been made.
“We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show,” Ravitz had said earlier in an email to The Washington Post. “However, at this point, we do not have a final decision. We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”
Clearly, a decision has now been made.
Lady Gaga will be performing at NRG Stadium in Houston on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017. She is set to give a preview of what will come in February during an appearance on Oct. 2, during an interview on the FOX NFL Sunday Pregame Show.
Lady Gaga previously sang the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif., this year.
