Superbowl 51 half-time show
Gaga performs at the 51st Super Bowl, which is between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, at the NRG stadium in Houston. Wearing a short silver jeweled leotard, fishnet tights and a mask, she starts the show on the stadium roof, singing God Bless America and This Is Your Land with around 300 drones forming a US flag behind her. Then she jumps from the stadium roof to the middle of the pitch, suspended by two wires. When she lands on the stage, she performs Poker Face, Just Dance, and Born This Way. She also performs part of the pop dance duet Telephone. Gaga plays the piano during her show, performing a more recent song: Million Reasons. While changing positions on her piano stool, she gives a shout-out to her parents.
Hey, dad. Hi, mum.
Gaga closes the show with the song Bad Romance, drops the mic, and jumps off the stage amidst fireworks.

Re-Airs first Super Bowl
The NFL Network will replay the first Super Bowl ever played on Friday, January 15. The original network tapes of the broadcast were lost, and the NFL has re-created footage over several months in order to be able to build a broadcast to share. The broadcast will show the first Super Bowl game in its entirety, carefully re-constructed from piecemeal footage, with modern enhancements to color and audio. The original audio from the NBC broadcast has been found and will be layered over the film.
Turned down Super Bowl performance
In am interview with Le Batard, Big Boi says that he and Andre 3000 were asked to perform during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, but Andre 3000 turned down the opportunity when he was told that they would not be able to perform two songs in full.
He didn’t want to cut the songs. He wanted to do both songs. They was like, ‘Y’all can’t do it.’
Big Boi says he tried to convince André to change his mind, and that he and Andre both laugh about it.
