    Done deal: Lady Gaga will perform at Super Bowl halftime

    The talks have ended, because a deal is done. And if I remembered the names of any of her songs or some of their lyrics, Iíd be tempted to start dropping in some stupid puns.

    Lady Gaga will perform at halftime of Super Bowl LI in Houston, according to Terry Lefton of SportsBusiness Daily.

    The announcement will come on Sunday during FOXís NFL programming, probably during the pregame show.

    Itís unknown whether other performers will be involved in the show. The biggest unknown is whether the unpaid gig has indeed morphed into a revenue source for the league, based on a report from the Wall Street Journal in 2014 that the idea had been floated of, for example, the artist surrendering a portion of increased ticket sales arising from the nine-figure audience the Super Bowl will be delivering.

    Fantastic! Nothing says NFL Football like Lady Gaga....
    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    Not a fan of Gaga, or pop music really, but she did a good job with the national anthem. Of course a Half Time show is something else.

    It's not like Prince (who was great) screams NFL football either.

    I mean, she puts on a helluva show, but once again, the fit is odd... But its pretty par for the course with the last decade or so of shows.

    No, I think Prince crossed a lot of genres and was a fine choice. But these Beyonce, Madonna, Katy Perry, and now Lady Gaga picks are a little bewildering. And they keep picking them. Of course the show already has a built in audience regardless of who the halftime performer is. And it's a wider demographic than probably any other game.
    But it's like they went from dinosaurs to these women. It's like the last thing they want to do is program to the NFL's core demographic. I still predict if they keep going down this path someone is going to get booed sooner rather than later. You can only misbook so long before it backfires. One of these acts will come so far shy of the mark that it won't be pretty.

    Lady Gag-Gag.

    Doubt they can get much more 'bottom of the barrel' than this.

    I don't care for Lady Gaga either but she can actually sing.

    They had Katy Perry as part of the halftime show and I don't think she has much talent either.

    How many people that get upset about the half time show picks even watch it instead of chugging beers?

    What would even be a band that fits the NFL's core demographic?

    I listen mostly to rock these days, and mostly find out about bands from Pitchfork or whoever is playing at the Black Cat. When I try to talk about these bands most of my friends who like football don't even know who they are.

    My wife listens to pop radio in the mornings and I hear very little rock.

    The Beyonce pick last year (?) or whatever was fine I thought. Don't generally like that music but Beyonce is entertaining.

    Coldplay was the NFL halftime show they had surprise appearances by Beyonce and Bruno Mars(who does put on a good show and I find preferable to Beyonce)

    Rock bands are one direction.... GnR... Foo Fighters... AC/DC (speaking of geezers... but kind of riding a wave right now)....

    It's easier to point to what it's not.... Madonna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga....

    Foo Fighters have been the most obvious pick ever for over a decade now.

    The NFL's core demographic is not the Super Bowl's core demo

    The Super Bowl is a pop culture event watched by pretty much everyone. Not surprising that they pick a major pop culture star.
