After singing the US national anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl, Lady Gaga may have an even bigger role at the Super Bowl next year.

Sources told Billboard that NFL is currently negotiating with Gaga for the halftime show of the 51st annual football showdown, which is scheduled for Feb. 5, 2017, at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. Gaga’s incredible rendition of “The Star-Sprangled Banner” at Super Bowl 50 is said to be the main reason why NFL wants Gaga to be in the halftime show next year. Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Beyonce shared the halftime stage at the previous Super Bowl, which received mixed reviews.

“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,” an NFL representative told the music publication when asked about Gaga. “We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”

The “Bad Romance” singer has kept busy in recent years with a series of high-profile appearances, including a performance at the 2015 Academy Awards followed by an Oscar nomination the next year for best original song for “Til It Happens To You,” written for the documentary “The Hunting Ground.” Gaga also appeared on the FX series “American Horror Story: Hotel,” where she won a Golden Globe for best actress in a miniseries or television film in 2016.

A Super Bowl halftime performance would make perfect sense for Gaga as she is preparing for the release of her next album. On Sept. 9, she released the album’s first single, “Perfect Illusion,” which was produced by Mark Ronson, Kevin Parker and BloodPop and features collaborations with Father John Misty, Beck and Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine. While the album has no official release date yet, Gaga told Elvis Duran of Z100 on Monday that it’s coming “really soon.”
