Lady Gaga will grace the NFL Super Bowl halftime show this Sunday, with a string of mercurial hits that could engender messages of equality and inclusion. The superstar is under pressure to match up or supersede the sterling performances of her forerunners like Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Madonna, and Janet Jackson.

Lady Gaga’s medley, which will take place at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, is wont to provide some relief during the halftime in what is expected to be a tense match between New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons.

The halftime show is scheduled to run for about 12 minutes. During this time, Lady Gaga is expected to give her show-stopping performance and perhaps invite some special guests. Earlier on it was rumored that Diplo, the Major Lazer producer, could be featured, but he quickly shot down the speculation. Lately, fans have been speculating that Beyoncé, a Super Bowl halftime show veteran- might show up. The rumors that Beyonce might appear began to swell after Lady Gaga uploaded an Instagram photo complete with a bee emoji.

Houston, you are beautiful. ????

How will Gaga’s halftime performance pan out?

The renowned singer adores the iconic performances of Beyoncé and Michael Jackson. Therefore, it won’t be surprising if she tries to emulate them in some way. She earlier said that she intends to create a ‘moment that everyone watching won’t forget’ because that is what she ‘remembers about iconic Super Bowl performances in the past.’ ‘Watching Michael Jackson perform the halftime show is one of my fondest memories,’ the Paparazzi singer confessed.

And what songs will Lady Gaga be singing?

Lady Gaga wants the songs on her set list to be a surprise. Therefore, she is trying to keeping specific details about her performance under wraps. However, it is common for performers to perform their biggest songs and perhaps throw in some top covers for good measure. Speculation is rife that Gaga might opt to perform Telephone, Bad Romance, Applause, Let’s Dance and Born This Way because those are some of her most successful hits yet.

She says that her set list includes some of the most successful hits that both football fans and folks tuning in for the halftime show will like.

And whether she’ll get political in any way, the singer said that the statements she’ll be making in the halftime show are the ones she’s been ‘consistently making all through my career.’ Those statements espouse inclusion and equality. She has yet to reveal, however, if she’ll mention Donald Trump in her expected epic performance.
