LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Little Monsters, rejoice: Lady Gaga is headed to the Super Bowl.

The singer announced via Twitter on Thursday that she will be performing at halftime during Super Bowl LI, set for Feb. 5, 2017.

“It’s not an illusion. The rumors are true,” she wrote in a tweet. “This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA!”

Billboard first reported Lady Gaga was in talks for the gig earlier this month.

The announcement comes almost three weeks after Lady Gaga dropped her new single, “Perfect Illusion.”

This is the second year in a row the Super Bowl has featured an appearance from Lady Gaga, who won a Golden Globe in January for her role on FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel.” She sang the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 to rave reviews.

Super Bowl 50’s halftime performer was Coldplay, who shared the stage with guest performers Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
