2015 was a stellar year for Lady Gaga, who got back to her roots following Cheek to Cheek, her jazz album with Tony Bennett. The popstar won a Grammy for the album, kicked off a collaborative tour with Bennett, released 'Til It Happens To You' to spread awareness regarding campus rape, starred in her first TV role in American Horror Story: Hotel, got engaged to longtime boyfriend Taylor Kinney, and performed high-profile tributes to the likes of Julie Andrews, Stevie Wonder, and Frank Sinatra. And judging by new reports, she'll be continuing her winning streak well into the new year with three huge performances lined up in just the first few months!
February the 7th: Super Bowl
Announced earlier today, Gaga will be headed to Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara this Sunday to perform 'The Star-Spangled Banner' in the annual national anthem performance before the Super Bowl kick off later that night, when the Carolina Panthers will take on the Denver Broncos. In doing so, Gaga will join Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Beyoncé in performing at the event, all of whom will be participating in this year's half time show. We know Gaga will hit this one out of the park!
February the 15th: The Grammy Awards
Gaga's Grammys performance was first announced back on the 6th of January, when software giant Intel confirmed during a conference that they would be working on a collaborative "performance that inspires to remind the world of the seed of innovation, the wizard behind the curtain, the mind behind the machine".
However, with the passing of David Bowie earlier this year, it seems that the performance has been reshaped, with Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammys, stating "We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year's show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction. We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honour David. She's perfect for it." Gaga, who famously wore a lightning bolt on her face during promotion of her first studio album The Fame, will honour the late singer through an "experimental tribute" which will be directed by disco legend Nile Rodgers. February the 15th can't come quickly enough!
February the 28th: The OSCAR Awards
Just two weeks after her Grammys performance, Gaga will be headed to the Oscars stage at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre in order to perform 'Til It Happens To You'. The song was written alongside Diane Warren for The Hunting Ground, a documentary Gaga participated in that aimed to expose the truths behind rape on university campuses throughout America. It was announced last year that the track would also be a contender for the 'Best Original Song' category at the 88th Academy Awards, alongside Sam Smith's James Bond theme 'Writing's on the Wall' and The Weeknd's Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack single 'Earned It'. Another day, another slay!
