For hardcore football fans, the Super Bowl is a huge deal. It’s the biggest game of the year, where- in theory- the two very best teams in the entire NFL face off for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. For more casual fans, though, the true entertainment on Super Bowl Sunday comes in the form of clever commercials and a spectacular halftime concert. Last year’s Super Bowl had several highlights, but one of them actually came in the form of Lady Gaga’s stirring rendition of the National Anthem. For Super Bowl 51, Gaga will be back, but this time as the headliner for the big halftime show.

The singer, and sometimes actress, took to twitter to officially announce that Super Bowl 51 is going Gaga.

This comes a few weeks after rumors sprouted up that Lady Gaga was in negotiations to take on the spot that’s recently been filled by the likes of Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, Missy Elliot, and Katy Perry. At the time, the NFL denied those reports, but- clearly- they were onto something.

Which was your favorite Super Bowl Halftime Show?
