The rumors turned out to be true. Super star Lady Gaga will be the Super Bowl LI (51) Halftime Show act.
Lady Gaga will follow the footsteps of Coldplay to perform the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2017. The NFL has officially announced the Lady Gaga Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show on Thursday, September 29. This is one of the earliest announcements of a Super Bowl halftime show act. Last year, the NFL announced Coldplay as Halftime Show performer in December.

A reason for the early announcements are the rumors that Lady Gaga would perform the 2017 Halftime show that surfaced in early September.
Lady Gaga is a six time Grammy Award winner and was nominated for a Golden Globe and Academy Award. She is a global superstar that is in our opinion a perfect pick for the Superbowl halftime show.
On Sunday, October 2, you can watch Lady Gaga talk about her plans for the big Lady Gaga show at the Super Bowl 2017. Tune in to FOX NFL Sunday Pregame Show at 12:00 PM ET on local FOX stations for the exclusive in-studio interview with Lady Gaga.

Super Bowl 2017 Halftime Show
The Super Bowl LI will take place in the NRG Stadium in Houston on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017. It is Fox's turn to broadcast the Super Bowl 2017. Pepsi is again the sponsor of the Super Bowl LI Halftime Show. The full official title of the show between the first and second halftime is pretty long winded: Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show.
The Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show is the most-watched musical event of the year. More than 116.5 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year's show. Super Bowl LI and Halftime Show will be broadcast by FOX Sports from NRG Stadium in Houston. Super Bowl LI marks Pepsi's fifth year as title sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime Show and 15th year as an NFL partner.
Ricky Kirschner is the executive producer of the 2017 halftime show and Hamish Hamilton will be directing the most watched musical event of the year.
The Super Bowl 2017 halftime show set list is not known yet and will be kept secret until the very end. There is always the possibility that the halftime show set list leaks ahead of the show. This has happened in the past. It is though safe to assume that Lady Gaga will perform some of her greatest hits during her Halftime Show.
