We’ve been building up for it for weeks and finally, Lady Gaga got her chance to shine at the Super Bowl Halftime show and she absolutely rocked the house.
Gaga, dressed in a shiny silver body suit, opened her performance from the roof of Houston's NRG stadium, which was opened just for her. She started off the performance with a medley of “God Bless America” and “This Land Is Your Land,” surrounded by hundreds of aerial drones that appeared as stars behind her, before morphing into the American flag.
After jumping off the roof, she belted out “Poker Face” while dangling from wires and dancing on a podium. She then joined her dancers on the floor for “Born This Way,” followed by “Telephone,” and “Just Dance,” all the while participants on the floor held up lights that were timed with each number.
Gaga then slowed things down and sat at her piano for "Million Reasons” and even gave a shout out to her parents. She then changed into a short white football-inspired outfit with sequined hot pants for “Bad Romance” and after an incredible dance number, Gaga dropped the mic, and deservedly so.
There’s no doubt Britney Spears’ Las Vegas show is a success. With only three months left until she wraps up her residency for good, Brit’s “Piece of Me” show has just passed the $100-million mark.
Brit’s nine shows last month brought the residency's overall gross to $103,399,634, and it’s only going to increase. She’s got nine more shows in March, April and May, with her final performance set for May 20th.
Bruno Mars has performed during the Super Bowl half-time show twice, but even though he was only playing a pre-Super Bowl party this year, that doesn’t mean he phoned it in. Bruno headlined the pop-up venue Club Nomadic in Houston on Friday and reportedly wowed the crowd with a high-energy 90-minute set that opened with his latest hit “24K Magic.”
“Houston we here … we’re trying to have some fun tonight,” he yelled to the crowd, which included John Legend, Michael Strahan and CeeLo Green. “I wanna see everyone moving. "I wanna see everyone dancing.” Word is, he did.
In addition to his own hits including “Treasure,” “Just the Way You Are,” “Locked Out of Heaven,” and “When I Was Your Man,” Bruno’s set also featured covers of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You,” Ginuwine’s “Pony” and Soul for Real’s “Candy Rain,” and ended with his mega hit “Uptown Funk.
