Just when you thought Lady Gaga fans didn’t have enough reason to rejoice reports indicate Mother Monster has given her faithful followers yet another reason to put their paws up!
Earlier today we reported preliminary figures that indicated the game itself (Patriots v. Falcons) had amassed a whopping 113 million viewers (across all formats) over its historic course. Those figures, however, did not include the then unknown spike or decline in viewership during the halftime show. In fact, it wasn’t until Madonna’s epic touchdown of a halftime show in 2012 that the viewership during the halftime show saw increase.
Well, if the final ratings reports are to be believed, it looks like Gaga has kept that new tradition alive in a big way. Tuck in to see how many tuned in to see her crank out hits ‘Just Dance,’ ‘Telephone,’ and more:
‘…it seems Lady Gaga also came very close to breaking a record with her halftime show.
Reaching back into her extensive catalog, the Grammy winner and American Horror Story actress snared 117.5 million viewers on Fox for her 13-minute performance at NRG Stadium in Houston…’
That handsome figure places Gaga at #2 of “most viewed Super Bowl halftime shows’ of all time. Former rival Katy Perry still remains #1 with a viewership of 120.7 million (across all formats).
