Watch: Lady Gaga’s Full Superbowl LI Pepsi Halftime Show & Peep The Best Reactions To It!

Last night, Lady Gaga took on the gigantic task of performing during halftime of what turned out to be probably one of the greatest Super Bowls (if you’re a Patriot fan) ever witnessed! Now it’s up for debate whether or not she delivered (I think she did) but it would seem a lot of folks are insanely hard to impress lately.

Now this wasn’t your typical halftime show, it started with Gaga literally on the top of NRG stadium singing “God Bless America” before transitioning into “This Land is Your Land” flanked by a sea of drones powered by Intel. Not to mention Gaga had to get clearance from the Federal Aviation Administration to even have those drones up in the air. Before she took a gigantic leap of faith into the stadium literally, Gaga ended her patriotic opening by quoting the “Pledge of Allegiance” and making sure she put emphasis on the “for all” part.

Once Gaga touched down onto the stage she jumped into a medley of her greatest hits that her Little Monsters love such as “Just Dance”, “Poker Face”, “Telephone” and “Bad Romance”.

Gaga promised she wouldn’t used the halftime show to make a HUGE political statement but she definitely made sure she preached inclusiveness! Gaga ended the show with her very pro LGBTQ 2011 hit “Born This Way” putting emphasis on the lyrics at the end of the song: “No matter gay, straight, or bi, Lesbian, transgendered life/I’m on the right track baby/I was born to survive.”

Our current lame Vice President was in the building and we are sure he was sitting there watching like:

Gaga ended the performance with an emphatic mic drop and then jumping off the stage while catching a football in typical Gaga fashion.

Well anyway it was a visual spectacle as the crowd on the field all held lights in their hands that were also a part of the show. Now of course there was commentary for the show and it was quite hilarious:

We are so happy Twitter is FREE! The social commentary is always on point during and following these events. We here at Stuff Fly People Like are equal opportunist when it comes to these jokes and Gaga is going to get them. Hit the gallery below to see the hilarious memes that immediately followed Lady Gaga’s halftime performance.
