Is the NFL ready for Lady Gaga? The "Perfect Illusion" singer, 30, might be gearing up to add an impressive new feat to her extensive résumé with a gig at the 2017 Super Bowl.

A source close to Gaga tells Us Weekly that she is "in talks" to perform at the 51st annual football championship game's halftime show on February 5, 2017, at NRG Stadium in Houston.

An NFL rep, meanwhile, tells Us, "We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point, we do not have a final decision. We're happy there is so much excitement about the show."

This wouldn't be the "Bad Romance" singer's first performance on the football field. Last year, she kicked off Super Bowl 50 with an incredible rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner," clad in a shimmering red Gucci pantsuit.

"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 … one of the highest honors," Gaga said at the time.

The American Horror Story: Hotel actress has kept busy over the past year with a series of high-profile performances. On a break from working on her fifth studio album (which is due out later this year), Gaga took the stage at the 2016 Grammy Awards with a high-tech David Bowie tribute. She also twice performed at the Academy Awards, where she paid tribute to The Sound of Music in 2015 and delivered an emotional interpretation of her ballad "Til It Happens to You" in 2016

Last month, rumors swirled that Adele was in talks to perform at Super Bowl LI, but the NFL later denied offering the gig to the "Hello" singer.

Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé and Madonna were among the most recent entertainers to take the Super Bowl halftime stage.

Billboard was first to report the news.
