The best part of Super Bowl LI¡¯s halftime show? There will be absolutely zero Coldplay involved.

Sunday¡¯s extravaganza will eschew the typical tradition of rolling out a trio acts, instead focusing on a singular performer and her sidekick. LI¡¯s headliner? Lady Gaga.
The Fame Monster artist was originally rumored to be flying solo, one year after Beyonce, Coldplay, and Bruno Mars choked the field at Levi¡¯s Stadium and two since Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz, and Missy Elliott teamed up for an eclectic performance that catapulted Left Shark into the public consciousness. Instead, she¡¯ll team up with San Francisco¡¯s favorite nonagenarian ¡ª the legendary Tony Bennett ¡ª who will contribute a brief video introduction to help kick off the event.
Lady Gaga, never one to avoid spectacle, will have to step up her game Sunday. She¡¯ll be the focus of more than 72,000 live fans and hundreds of millions more across the globe on television. The Grammy-winning chanteuse has some grand plans in store for her performance; reports swirled midway through January she wanted to find a way to sing from the retractable roof of NRG Stadium.
Earlier this week on Mix 104.1¡¯s Karson & Kennedy, the 30-year-old singer revealed that the idea came from her sister, who said ¡°I know, let¡¯s suspend you in the air!¡± However, Lady Gaga stopped short of confirming whether she would open the show on the roof.
Instead, the Patriots got the ball back with 3:30 remaining. They needed only 2:30 to drive 91 yards for a touchdown and game-tying two-point conversion against the Falcons’ exhausted defense.

That’s just one of many hotspots where the Falcons are vulnerable to criticism. They led by 25 points in the third quarter and by 19 points with less than 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, and they lost. It was an epic, historic collapse that will never be forgotten.
