As always, two storylines dominated the Super Bowl headlines. First and foremost, the game, which many said was the greatest Super Bowl of all-time. Secondly, the halftime show, which might have been even more newsworthy than the game had the Patriots not made a historic second half comeback.
Lady Gaga wowed fans with a spectacular drone fueled, we will get to the fact that it was taped later this week, performance that hit all the stops. Gaga opened with “Poker Face”, also known as the Prop Bet Lock of the Century, then went on to run off some of her biggest hits. “Born This Way”, “Just Dance” and “Bad Romance” were to name a few and now it looks like Gaga will be going back to the drawing board to prepare for her next live, televised performance.
It was just announced earlier today that Lady Gaga and Metallica will perform at this year’s Grammys, adding to an already impressive week for the superstar. A day after her Super Bowl performance, Gaga announced a world tour that will begin later this summer.
The tour will hit every major North American city and even parts of Europe but the Grammys are drawing the majority of the headlines today. This year won’t be Gaga’s first at the Grammys though, as she performed last year to pay tribute to the late David Bowie.
Metallica hasn’t performed on the show since 2014 but they will return in anticipation of their Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song for “Hardwired”. Gaga is not up for any awards this year, as her newest album, Joanne, was released after the 2016 deadline.
Gaga and Metallica aren’t the only duos that have been confirmed for the 2017 Grammy Award Show, as Alicia Keys will perform with country singer Maren Morris and the Weeknd will pair up with Daft Punk for a Starboy collaboration.
After a Super Bowl halftime show that got everyone talking and the announcement of a new world tour, regardless of how Gaga and Metallica collaborate, they’ll certainly have everyone talking again next month.
