Lady Gaga will headline next year's Super Bowl halftime show

Lady Gaga is officially set to perform at the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show. 

Gaga’s performance at the event had been rumoured earlier this month, but the singer took to Twitter Friday morning to confirm that she’ll be the headlining act. 

The 2016 Super Bowl halftime show saw Beyoncé, Coldplay, and Bruno Mars perform a medley of their respective hits. At this point, it appears as though Gaga will have no such accompaniment. 

It’s likely that her performance will feature material from her upcoming album “Joanne,” which is set for release on October 21.

Next year’s Super Bowl will take place on February 5 at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
