Lady Gaga has high expectations from the Super Bowl halftime show tonight – and it does not involve lip-syncing.
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are teaming up to headline the prestigious halftime show during the big game tonight at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. And before the Latina popstars hit the stage, Demi Lovato will be doing the honors of singing the US national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner. The ‘Born This Way’ singer Gaga will be watching – and listening – intently and fully expects to hear live vocals. The 33-year-old performed at the AT&T TV Super Saturday Night show yesterday as part of the Super Bowl weekend celebrations and had a message for the entertainers.
After descending onto the stage, Gaga warned tonight’s performers: ‘I better hear no lip-syncing tomorrow.’ Ouch.
Of course, Gaga knows a thing or two about performing at the Super Bowl following her critically-acclaimed performance in 2017 where she pretty much parachuted into the stadium.
After closing her performance last night with her hit ballad ‘Shallow,’ from A Star Is Born, Gaga revealed she was throwing no shade at J.Lo, Shakira or Demi and proceeded to wish them luck. ‘I love you Miami. I love you J Lo. I love you Shakira,’ she told the audience. ‘I wish so much love and so much luck to everyone that’s doing the halftime show, to both the teams that are playing each other in the Super Bowl.’
‘They’re all champions,’ she added. Reflecting on her halftime show performance three years ago, ‘Thank you so much for believing in me. I remember when I played the half-time show and it was one of the most special, beautiful things that’s ever happened to me. So, thank you.’ Peep the video along with a few reactions below. What do you guys think of GaGa’s message?
