Lady Gaga gave fans about a million reasons to take to social media to sing her praises during tonight’s jaw-dropping halftime show at the Super Bowl.
Cranking out hits ‘Just Dance,’ ‘Poker Face,’ ‘Born This Way,’ and more, the songstress and her bevy of dancers not only lit up Houston’s NRG stadium but apparently Twitter as well. Causing so much chatter among fans, detractors, critics, and fellow performers (as we reported here) reports now indicate Gaga has become the most tweeted about halftime show performer to date.
Surpassing the Twitter stats of ‘Telephone’ co-star Beyonce at last year’s controversial showing with Bruno Mars and Coldplay, tuck in below to see just how many times the word “Gaga” was mentioned over the hours leading to and during the Super Bowl’s airing:
There were 2.2 million tweets about the #PepsiHalftime show during the 20-minute live performance; counting the 20 minutes before and 10 minutes following the show, there were 5.1 million tweets about #Gaga’s performance, and Lady Gaga was mentioned on Twitter 2.1 million times between 7:50 and 8:40 p.m. EST.
That beats last year, when the halftime show garnered 3.9 million tweets, according to data from Twitter. Viewers tweeted about Beyoncé 1.3 million times, Coldplay 774,000 times and Bruno Mars 341,000 times, all in the 23 minute time period.
With the numbers above Gaga’s name has been etched in history books for the most tweeted about Super Bowl Halftime Show in history. The news shines favorably as we patiently await reports on the show’s overall rating and impact on her catalog’s sales.
