Six time Grammy Award winning artist performed at the Super Bowl LI
As the Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime show approached, fans all over the country were wondering what did the one, the only, Lady Gaga have in store for us this year.
For some, it isn’t about the ads, it isn’t about the game, it’s all about that half time show and they were watching to see what pop icon Lady Gaga would do in Houston’s NRG Stadium.
For pre-game fun, Gaga wore a pink football uniform and later could be seen rocking the field for photos with her Mother and Father. On her Instagram, she wrote a message to her fans confirming that she would be flying solo during the 13-minute performance. As the clock was ticking away, fans were asking, what over-the top performance did she have in store and why can’t they just fast forward to the halftime show?
Rumors had spread as the game drew near that Lady Gaga would perform on the roof of the stadium. Questions arose as to if she would really do it, or would they even allow her to perform up there.
Sure enough, the crowed looked to the stars as she performed “God Bless America” with a drone light show on the roof of the stadium. The drones shined America’s colors as she jumped to an acrobatic performance, descending to the taller pedestal with screaming fans.
Fireworks blazing, she fired off her show performing her hit “Poker Face.” Still connected to wires she descended on to the main stage with her back up dancers performing “Born This Way.” She then rose to her star platform performing “Telephone,” which led into the track that launched her career, “Just Dance.” Calming down the show, Gaga transitioned to “A Million Reasons” playing the piano then walking to the crowd where she touched and hugged the people below. She powered back up to “Bad Romance” which concluded her performance with the drones lights spelled out Pepsi.
As she was performing the tweets came rolling in with 41,000 tweets per minute on Twitter during the performance. Facebook was trending with variations of “she nailed it”, and “she did a great job.” 396,000 people per minute were also talking about Lady Gaga on Facebook. Lady Gaga was on fire for the Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime with a performance that will surely be engraved in the memories of Super Bowl and Lady Gaga fans.
