The NFL and Pepsi published on Thursday that the "pop star" would take the stage on February 5 at NRG Stadium in Houston.
"It's not an illusion," the singer said on Twitter, referring to her latest single Perfect Illusion. "The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA!"
Lady Gaga drew widespread compliment for her performance of the American national anthem at the Super Bowl this year in Santa Clara, California.
"I've always wanted to sing the National Anthem at a major sporting event since I was a little girl, and for it to be the Super Bowl, it is the ultimate," she told NFL.com at the time. "This is one of the highest honors of my career."
Gaga, with astonishing performance at Hackney's Moth Club earlier this month, will release a new album, "Joanne," this coming October 21. The Grammy winner's hits include "Poker Face," "Bad Romance," "Born This Way" and "Applause".
The Super Bowl is the most-awaited event every year on US television, attracting more than 100 million spectators and previous best performance halftime headliners include Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Katy Perry and the Rolling Stones.
The pop star follows in the footmarks of the 2016 headliners, Coldplay (who had guest stars Beyoncé and Bruno Mars), Katy Perry and Madonna. The Super Bowl attains an upward of 100 million subscribers each year and can lead to a massive record sales boost for halftime show performers.
