While it's still unclear what Lady Gaga will do for the Super Bowl halftime show, the president of Fox Sports is expecting greatness.
The Super Bowl is only four weeks away, and Gaga is hard at work planning her big show for halftime. Gaga has been cryptic about what exactly she'll be performing or any other tricks up her sleeve, but it sounds like Fox executives are feeling good about it.
Fox Sports President Eric Shanks spoke with reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour this week and said that while he isn't sure what she's going to do, he's sure it will be "pretty amazing."
"I don't know if she's gonna have a collaborator or a guest or anything like that, just at this moment," he continued. "But we have spent some time with her, and I will tell you, she is so into putting on a great performance. She is all in on what she's gonna do for everybody at halftime."
Fox NFL Sunday anchor Howie Long gave his own thoughts on Gaga's impending show.
"I don't think anyone knows what to expect. I'm sure it'll be exciting and that's why Lady Gaga has been cast as the halftime performer," he said.
Fox is also planning a special devoted to the best Super Bowl halftime performances scheduled to air the night before, on Saturday, Feb. 4.
"Halftime is one of those things that people...talk about for a long time," Shanks said. "We're actually doing a show [the] Saturday night leading into NFL Honors that is a one-hour show: the best of NFL Super Bowl halftimes. So those are things...take on a life of their own."
Gaga impressed millions of Super Bowl-watchers last year when she performed a pitch-perfect version of the National Anthem at the big event. The singer said after she had been chosen to perform this year's halftime show that she got the gig after playing her new album, Joanne, for Fox executives.
The Super Bowl will take place Sunday, Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
