Well if it was never going to be Adele, and it’s not going to be Kanye West, then the headlining performer at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show might as well be none other than consummate performer Lady Gaga.
Sources shared with Billboard that Gaga was indeed in talks to spearhead the massive live event next year, which will take place in Houston, Texas, on February 5, 2017. Apparently, when she sang the National Anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl, she turned more than a few heads and the NFL is interested in seeing what she can do leading the halftime spot.
The NFL is still denying they have made any decision, though. “We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision,” an NFL rep said. “We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”
Excitement seems like an understatement. After Adele shared that she’d turned down the slot to perform (which Pepsi and the NFL later said they’d never offered her), fans began petitioning to get West the gig. We came up with our own list if the NFL needs any ideas outside Gaga, but we’re sure they have things covered.
