Every Song Lady Gaga Performed During Her 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show
Mother Monster quickly became one of the Super Bowl’s most iconic performers, taking to the Halftime Show stage in 2017. Here’s what we know about what songs Lady Gaga featured during this mini-concert experience.
‘House of Gucci’ actor Lady Gaga performed at the 2017 Super Bowl
Since releasing hits “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” Lady Gaga became one of the biggest names in the music industry. She snagged 12 Grammy Awards, performed at President Joe Biden’s Inauguration ceremony, and appeared in her own Super Bowl Halftime Show performance.
“I’m really happy and had such an amazing time performing at Super Bowl, [I] wish I could relive it all over again,” Gaga said during an interview with Apple Music Beats 1 host Zach Lowe. “I really had a real sense of being in the zone for this performance, worked on it for a really long time, took months, trained hard.”
Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Halftime Show included songs like ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Born This Way’
Complete with colorful drones, Lady Gaga began her Super Bowl Halftime Show with “God Bless America” and “This Land is Your Land.” Then, in an iconic move later meme-ed by Little Monsters, Lady Gaga jumped off the stadium’s roof.
Before her rendition of “Poker Face,” a medley of some of Lady Gaga’s best-known songs played as she traveled down into the stadium and onto her stage. That included snippets of “Dance In the Dark,” “Just Dance,” “LoveGame,” and “Edge of Glory.”
Surrounded by her dancers, Lady Gaga performed “Born This Way,” becoming the first person to say “transgender” at the Super Bowl. Lady Gaga then transitioned to “Telephone,” a song initially featuring Beyoncé. Beyoncé did not make a cameo at the event, although Queen Bey herself performed in several Halftime Shows.
Complete with a keytar, “Telephone” led into a performance of “Just Dance,” with Lady Gaga moving to a piano for “Million Reasons,” a single off her recently released album Joanne. The final song of the Halftime Show was “Bad Romance.”
Lady Gaga followed Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, and Coldplay’s Super Bowl Halftime Show performance
The year before Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, and Beyoncé took to the stage. This was an especially significant moment for Beyoncé, as it marked the beginning of her Lemonade era, complete with a performance of “Formation.”
In 2018, Justin Timberlake performed at the iconic sports event. He sang and danced to “SexyBack,” “Cry Me a River,” and “Suit & Tie,” among others. He also included a tribute to Prince.
Aside from her singing career, Lady Gaga starred in the 2018 film A Star is Born, co-writing several songs for the production and earning an Academy Award. Recently, the actor starred in House of Gucci alongside Adam Driver. In 2020, the musician also released her album Chromatica, featuring “Stupid Love” and “Rain On Me.”
