Following much speculation, Lady Gaga confirmed on Thursday that she will be performing at the Super Bowl LI halftime show.

This will be her second time performing at the Super Bowl. She sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl 50 last February.

Gaga announced the news on Twitter:

"Lady Gaga is one of the most iconic and talented artists of this generation, said Mark Quenzel, NFL senior vp of programming and production. "After her remarkable performance singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl 50, we are excited to see what she has in store for the world's biggest stage – the Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show."
