The Super Bowl goes...Gaga?

Get ready, little monsters!

On Thursday afternoon, Lady Gaga revealed on Twitter that she would be performing in the Super Bowl LI halftime show.

"It's not an illusion. The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA" her tweet said.

Minutes later, the NFL confirmed the news in an online news release.

This will be GaGa's second time performing at the Super Bowl. The six-time Grammy-award winning singer performed the National Anthem ahead of Super Bowl 50. (You can watch that performance below).

Gaga released her latest single, Perfect Illusion, recently. Her upcoming album, Joanne, is set to be released on Oct. 21.

Super Bowl 51, or Super Bowl LI, will be held Feb. 5, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
