Once Adele had ruled herself out of the running, we could only think of one person worthy enough to rock this year's Super Bowl halftime show.
Talk about making one hell of an epic comeback! It has only been one week since Lady Gaga entered the Vodafone Big Top 40 just 2 DAYS after the release of 'Perfect Illusion' and now it has been revealed that Mother Monster herself is due to take the stage at the world's biggest sporting event.
Sources confirmed to US Weekly that the New Yorker is set to take the 51st annual American football championship by storm with a rip-roaring set!

According to Billboard, sources claimed that Lady Gaga was in talks for the 51st Super Bowl Halftime Show a few weeks ago, which will take place in Houston, Texas on 5th February 2017, after organisers were so impressed with her singing the national anthem at the 2016 event which was headlined by Coldplay with special guests in the form of Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
The organisers had previously explained, "We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision. We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show."
One previous superstar that was said to be headlining the show was Adele, but she pretty much ruled herself out of the running by saying, "First of all, I'm not doing the Super Bowl. I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don't really - I can't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no."
However, the NFL and their Halftime Show sponsor Pepsi have denied that she was ever even asked, releasing a joint statement that read, “The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele. We have had conversations with several artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show.
“However, we have not at this point extended a formal offer to Adele or anyone else. We are focused on putting together a fantastic show for Houston and we look forward to revealing that in good time."
