This will mark the second year in a row that the singer will participate in the event. Lady Gaga sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl earlier this year in Santa Clara, California, which saw its half time performance by Coldplay, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson. Gaga will release a new album, “Joanne,” on Oct. 21. The Grammy winner’s hits include “Poker Face,” “Bad Romance,” “Born This Way” and “Applause” and she will likely perform a number of songs from her forthcoming album ‘Joanne’, as well as a medley of her hits from The Fame, The Fame Monster, Born This Way, and Art-Pop.
Super Bowl 51 will take place Sunday, February 5 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
Looking forward to it Gaga!
