Pop music’s quirky songstress and fashion creative Lady Gaga graced the 2017 Super Bowl halftime performance with a stunning showcase of glimmer, lights, harnesses, drones and her smashing hit singles.
But after the Little Monsters celebration came to an end, the last thing fans may have expected was a daredevil roof dive from the top of Houston’s NRG Stadium from the “Born This Way” singer.
And knowing Gaga, that’s exactly how she wanted it.
As she opened up the performance with “America the Beautiful,” fans were probably already anticipating a surprise twist from the singer, who has been openly combative against Donald Trump’s presidency and frequently addresses equality and inclusiveness.
Certain enough, she then crooned a rendition of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land,” a protest anthem majorly used in anti-Trump demonstrations that have broken out around the country since the former television reality star made his way into the Oval Office. Rolling through her other popular tracks, such as “Born This Way” and even the Beyoncé-featured “Telephone” (sans Queen Bey), Gaga’s roof-leaping performance closeout hit social media’s ceiling in the most hilarious of ways. Trey Songz, R&B's smooth crooner, even slid his way in for a knee slap following the performance.
