Lady Gaga's halftime show featured flames, fireworks, and fanfare

Lady Gaga started her Super Bowl LI halftime show by leaping into the NRG Stadium in Houston and ended it by dropping the mic.

Her performance was a medley of her biggest hits, including "Just Dance," "Bad Romance," and "Perfect Illusion," as well as patriotic standards like "God Bless America." In true Gaga fashion, she wore several sparkly costumes and was surrounded by energetic dancers, and even had the audience get involved by waving around lights.

Watch the entire dazzling performance — filled with fireworks, flames, and frenetic dancing — in the video below. Catherine Garcia
