Lady Gaga wows the Super Bowl

Lady Gaga wows the Super Bowl

Lady Gaga dazzled the Super Bowl on Sunday with a high-tech, tightly choreographed halftime show celebrating American diversity and unity as she chose the power of showbiz over direct provocation. 

Lady Gaga

Performing at American football's title match -- generally the most watched US television event of the year -- the pop diva electrified NRG Stadium in Houston with a pulsating medley of her greatest hits.


From the outset, Gaga served notice this was no ordinary halftime show -- she began her performance from the lip of the stadium, an army of 300 drones forming a twinkling American flag in the sky.


Then she took flight.

The singer, clad in a sparkling silver bodysuit and knee high boots, leapt from the edge of the retractable roof onto the stage with the help of some sturdy wires -- and the performance was nonstop from there.

Ahead of the show, all eyes were on Lady Gaga to see whether she would use the platform to rip into President Donald Trump at a tense time in US politics. 


Even with Vice President Mike Pence in attendance, Gaga -- a sworn foe of Trump -- kept with the game's guidelines to steer clear of overt politics.
