#LadyGaga in talks to HEADLINE #SuperBowl 51! [details]

Since it seemed that Adele turned down the Super Bowl gig that was never offered to her.  Pepsi has set their sights on another HIGH-POWER act--Lady Gaga.

Sources tell Billboard that Gaga is in talks for the 51st annual football showdown, scheduled for Feb. 5, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston. One of the main reasons for why the NFL is said to be hot on the singer was her performance of the National Anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl. That year, Coldplay — with guests Beyonce and Bruno Mars — shared the halftime stage to mixed reviews.
“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 told Billboard when asked about Gaga. “We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”
Gaga is coming off of several high-profile appearances in recent years, including a 2015 performance at the Academy Awards which was followed by an Oscar nomination the next year for “‘Til It Happens to You” for best original song (written for the documentary The Hunting Ground). Gaga also won a Golden Globe in 2016 for best actress in a miniseries or television film for her role on the FX seriesAmerican Horror Story: Hotel. 
She released a new song, “Perfect Illusion,” on Sept. 9 — the first single from her forthcoming album, which was executive produced by Mark Ronson and features collaborations with Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, Beck and Father John Misty. While no release date has been announced, Gaga told Elvis Duran on Sept. 12 that the album is expected “really soon.”

This has the POTENTIAL to be a good choice. Gaga has HITS to boot, but to make it ELECTRIFYING, she is going to need to some HELP from some other current stars as well.
