Lady Gaga will take to the stage at Houston’s NRG Stadium and perform for a larger audience than she has at any point in her superstar career on Super Bowl Sunday.
For all the talk of the Grammys being music’s biggest stage, or the tremendous crowds at the biggest music festivals, the Super Bowl halftime show dwarfs them all; in 2016, Coldplay performed to a reported 115 million people — not including anyone who watched it at a sports bar or other public gathering spots.
There are likely only a few artists in the world who can put on a show as big as that audience. So, if Gaga is this year’s headliner, and presuming that the league doesn’t want to repeat performers, who’s next?
We’ve got some suggestions.
