On Sunday, February 5th, Super Bowl 51 filled the TV’s of many football lovers. The New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons took the field leaving many people on the edge of their sofa’s the entire game. The New England Patriots have participated in 9 total Super Bowls, and as of Sunday, won five of them. But sitting through the game, we expected a different turnout. At halftime, The Falcons were in the lead with a 21-3 score. The Patriots slowly crept up on the Atlanta team during the second half making it the first Super Bowl to go into overtime. The game ended 34-28 with the Patriots turning the game around and defeating the Falcons.
Football wasn’t the only exciting part about Super Bowl 51. Lady Gaga flew into halftime and took every one by surprise. Yes, she actually flew. Gaga started her show on the roof with a mash-up of “God Bless America” and “This Land is Your Land” before jumping down to the field bonded by a rope. Making it to her set, she performed many well known songs, while including a new one. “Poker Face,” “Born This Way,” “Hello, Hello,” “Just Dance,” “Million Reasons,” and “Bad Romance” were iconically sung and danced to while she hugged fans between songs. The performance included many costume changes and several backup dancers. It was truly fun to watch and quickly took over the internet.
With The Patriots making a significant comeback defeat against The Falcons, Lady Gaga putting on an amazing halftime performance, and Tom Brady now having enough NFL championship rings to fill one hand. Super Bowl 51 is now one for the books.
