What To Expect From Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Halftime Extravaganza!

Lady Gaga and Super Bowl halftime

For hundreds of millions of viewers around the world it’s all about who will win between the New England Patriots and the Atlantic Falcons in the Super Bowl final today.

But for the rest of us – the only event to really care about is the halftime entertainment.

Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl 51 halftime show will reportedly “light up the sky” with a coordinated swarm of several hundred aerial drones — forming a shapes as they hover above Houston’s NRG Stadium.

The 12-minute halftime show, sponsored by Pepsi, will feature Lady Gaga performing under a canopy of shimmering drones, CNN reported Saturday citing sources familiar with the production, which Variety can confirm.

It’s the first time drones will be used in a live TV event, and the first time the robotic aircraft will appear in the Super Bowl.

Neither Gaga nor the event’s organisers have revealed the set list for one of the most watched segments in TV history, however.

According to Twitter, the top four songs that fans tweeting about Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl perf are hoping she sings are Telephone, Bad Romance, Poker Face and Born this Way.

Along with the drone light display, Lady Gaga also may make her halftime entrance by descending from the roof of the stadium.

Gaga apparently confirmed rumors about the stunt on a radio show last week, revealing that it was her sister’s idea to fly her above the pitch, per The New York Times.

You can catch all the Super Bowl action live on Seven, or Foxtel from around 10.30am (AEDT), with the halftime show expected to start around 12.30pm (AEDT). You can also watch it all online via Channel Seven’s PLUS7.
