Wowzers. If you’ve watched the groundbreaking event that was Lady Gaga’s incredible halftime show at the 2017 Super Bowl, then you may need a minute or 2 to recover.
Amid heavy protest against the immigration ban by President Trump, many were wondering if the outspoken artist would include a statement in her performance. Instead, Gaga kicked off her show atop the stadium with a message of unity.
The 6-time Grammy winner belted a patriotic mash-up of “God Bless America” and “This Land Is Your Land”. As blue and red stars covered the sky, Gaga looked into the camera and recited the Pledge of Allegiance, reminding those watching that we’re all “one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all”.
She then jumped through the roof and make her way to the famed halftime show platform and screaming crowd. Joined by her team of dancers, the 30-year-old served us some Gaga goodness with a slew of her biggest hits – including “Poker Face,” “Million Reasons”, “Just Dance”, “Telephone”, and “Born This Way”.
From beginning to end, Gaga was on her A game and she made sure not to disappoint her loyal fans – little monsters. She attempted some flying acrobatics, rock a keytar, and killed it with her dance routines.
Although Gaga mostly sang the choruses to her full-tilt pop songs, when it came to her 2011 hit, “Born This Way”, the hit-maker again offered another clear message of acceptance. She then slowed things down with a stripped version of the ballad “Million Reasons”. In between chords, she lovingly gave a shoutout to her parents. Aw…
For the grand finale, she picked up paced with an insane choreography of “Bad Romance”. As her halftime show came to a close, Lady Gaga went out big – with a mic drop, caught a football, and jumped off the stage.
Now, that’s how you rock the Super Bowl. Well done, Gaga!
