Fans of NFL, who are not in the US, can still watch the Super Bowl live. The fight between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons will be broadcast from 10 AM AEST to 4 PM on the Seven Network’s.
Those who have Foxtel can also watch in on ESPN, the Sydney Morning Herald reports. ESPN would also present their pre and post-game analysis on Monday.
This year, country singer Luke Bryan would sing the national anthem. The much-awaited half-time show would be performed by Lady Gaga, who just sang the anthem at last year’s Super Bowl. You can catch the singer’s half-time performance at 12.30 pm AEST.
Lady Gaga did not tell anyone about the songs she would perform. However, many expect that she would take this opportunity to present a political statement.
Gaga has been vocal about her support to 2016 US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. However, the Entertainment Tonight has reported that the NFL has told the singer that she would not be permitted to mention or make any statements about US President Donald Trump or the recent US election.
Lady Gaga says that she would emphasize inclusiveness and diversity, which have been focal themes in her career. In an interview, she also said that she would promote love and compassion.
“The only statements that I’ll be making during the halftime show are the ones that I’ve been consistently making throughout my career,” the singer told the New York Times. “I believe in a passion for inclusion. I believe in the spirit of equality, and that the spirit of this country is one of love and compassion and kindness. My performance will uphold those philosophies.”
Perhaps the singer would perform songs from her newest album, Joanne. The album leans more to country and rock than dance pop, which most of audience know. Fans already got a taste of her album when she performed at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in December, singing the three songs, “Million Reasons,” “A-Yo,” and “John Wayne.”
It is not clear whether the singer would have other special performers. However, it is believed that Gaga’s colleague, Tony Bennett would introduce her. Bennett also collaborated with Gaga on 2014 on her album, Cheek to Cheek.
It has been rumored that Houston-native Beyonce could perform alongside Gaga. Beyonce and Lady Gaga already worked together years ago on their songs, “Telephone” and “Videophone.” However, others have suggested that Beyonce would not be able to come to her performance after recent announcement of her pregnancy.
