Lady Gaga To Headline Super Bowl Halftime Show

This is going to be GOOD.

Get ready, little monsters, Lady Gaga is set to headline this season’s Super Bowl halftime show.

The performer made the announcement Thursday on Twitter.

“It’s not an illusion. The rumors are true,” the tweet read. “This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA”

Lady Gaga performed a memorable rendition of the national anthem during Super Bowl 50 earlier this year. Beyonce, Coldplay and Bruno Mars headlined the halftime show.

According to a report from Billboard, Gaga’s well-received national anthem performance was a deciding factor in her selection for the Super Bowl 51 halftime show on Feb. 5, 2017, at Houston’s NRG Stadium.

The Super Bowl halftime show is “the most-watched musical event of the year,” the NFL said in its announcement of Lady Gaga. More than 116.5 million viewers in the U.S. watched last season’s show.

Lady Gaga’s newest album, “Joanne,” is set to be released Oct. 21.
