After dropping her latest single “Perfect Illusion” with an accompanying music video, Lady Gaga confirmed that she will be performing at the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show. The singer herself confirmed the news on Twitter this past Thursday (Sept. 29).
“It’s not an illusion. The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA,” the singer wrote on Twitter.

Billboard had been told by sources early in September that Gaga was being considered to perform at 51st installment of the Super Bowl, slated to be broadcasted on Feb. 5 at the NRG Stadium in Houston. The singer will be the sixth female performer to ever headline the Super Bowl halftime show. In 2016 Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars performed at one of network television’s biggest events.
Gaga’s fifth studio album, Joanne, will be released on Oct. 21, and includes musical guests Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine, Father John Misty, Beck, Mark Ronson, Kevin Parker of Tame Impala and Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age. She is likely to have a impressive roster of guests for the halftime show as well.
The “Perfect Illusion” singer also recently revealed the track list for her album on Twitter, which spans 11 songs. Producer’s BloodPop, Hillary Lindsey and Mark Ronson are also featured on the album. While Father John Misty was a collaborator on her album, the song he helped write, “Sinner’s Prayer,” didn’t include his name.
