The pressure is on for Lady Gaga to deliver an unforgettable Super Bowl performance


WATCH | Lady Gaga wants to bring a new kind of energy to this year's Super Bowl Halftime show.

Lady Gaga has a record of wowing audiences with her eye-catching outfits and electrifying dance moves. And from the looks of a video previewing her Super Bowl Halftime show, she's ready to deliver a one-of-a-kind halftime performance.

"We're just gonna see a humble, appreciative, yet showmanship side of Gaga," choreographer Richy Jackson said in the video. "And we haven't seen her like this because we haven't been on a stage like this."

It'll be a new face, a different kind of energy," he added.

For Gaga, it's the opportunity of a lifetime. The pop icon said she's been planning this since she was four years old and knew "exactly what [she was] going to do."

The halftime show, however, doesn't give Gaga free reign to do anything she wants on stage. According to an Entertainment Tonight report, the Grammy-award winning singer was told by the NFL "that she cannot say anything or bring anything up about the election, or mention Donald Trump."

That may prove challenging for the Grammy-award winning singer, who has used her stardom to garner attention to issues like sexual assault.

She's also been a staunch opponent of the soon-to-be president. "He divided us so carelessly. Let's take care now of each other," she wrote on Instagram. 

Gaga has a taste of what to expect during America's most-watched event. She performed the national anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl, which immediately drew comparisons to Whitney Houston's iconic 1991 performance.

The Super Bowl is expected to take place on Sunday Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. on FOX. 

For those who can't wait,  the singer is sharing Super Bowl rehearsals on social media.
