Lady Gaga wows at Super Bowl

Lady Gaga lives for the applause and her thrilling halftime show at the Super Bowl elicited some of the loudest praise she’s ever received.

The 30-year-old pop star took the stage — and roof — of the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas by storm last night (Sunday, Feb. 5) during a medley of her biggest hits. She performed portions of “Edge of Glory,” “Bad Romance,” “Poker Face,” “Million Reasons,” “Born This Way,” “Telephone” and “Just Dance.”

But in typical Gaga style, the show was about much more than vocals. She incorporated fierce choreography, a diverse crew of skilled backup dancers, dazzling fireworks and, naturally, loads of glitter.

She also took the opportunity to subtly make a statement about the current political climate by opening her performance with “God Bless America” and seguing into the Americana classic “This Land Is Your Land.”

Her stirring delivery generated swift and favorable reaction from many celebrities including Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Zac Efron and Mindy Kaling.

    I was underwhelmed. At least she sang, but she was missing something. It wasn’t as big as it could have been.
