After performing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in 2016, Lady Gaga may now have an even bigger role at the 2017 Super Bowl.
According to sources for Billboard, the singer is currently in talks to perform during the Super Bowl LI halftime show in Houston, Texas on Feb. 5, 2017. Billboard says the NFL likes Gaga as a halftime performer thanks to her National Anthem performance from last year.
“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 representative told Billboard when asked about the singer. “We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”
While Gaga’s solo career has taken a back seat in the past few years, the singer has still kept busy with appearances on “American Horror Story,” a performance at the 2015 Academy Awards and a duet album with Tony Bennett.
A halftime performance at the Super Bowl would make perfect sense for the singer as she is preparing for the release of her next solo album. On Sept. 9, Gaga released the album’s first single, “Perfect Illusion.”
Produced by Kevin Parker, Mark Ronson and BloodPop, the song peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart. While the album doesn’t have a release date yet, Gaga recently told Elvis Duran of Z100 that it’s coming “really soon" and will be out this year. The album will also feature collaborations with Beck, Father John Misty and Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine.
