The Super Bowl is one of the biggest events of the year for some people. While some enjoy the thrill of two fantastic football teams going head to head, others simply love the funny commercials and the halftime show. Every year there is a musician or group chosen to perform during the Super Bowl halftime performance. In the past couple of years the featured performers have included some big names such as Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, and the Black Eyed Peas. This year Lady Gaga was chosen and really embraced it.
Although she was pretty flashy, she wasn’t nearly as flashy as she has been before. This time around, instead of wearing a meat suit, she was wearing a sparkly one piece. Also, after the election, many people thought that the halftime show would have a political message. In a refreshing way, it didn’t have too strong of a political message.
She started off her performance on the roof by singing “This Land is Your Land” and “God Bless America.” Then she said part of the Pledge of Allegiance before launching herself off the roof of the stadium. Then she sang many of her hit songs such as “Poker Face”, “Just Dance”, “Bad Romance”, “Telephone”, and “Born This Way”. Although many people did not catch this she really emphasized the LGBTQ rights through singing her song “Born This Way”, which may have been influenced by the fact that Vice President Mike Pence was in the audience.
All in all, it was a very good halftime performance put on by Lady Gaga. She didn’t overdo anything politically, which many people were scared of. Her music was great and as it always does, many people caught themselves singing along. It was flashy and perfect for the Super Bowl.
