And it's no surprise that Gaga's favorite performers include some of the music greats.
"Michael Jackson was incredible," she told Radio Disney on Monday of Jackson’s 1993 halftime show. “I also loved Diana Ross. To be honest, I loved all of the halftime shows. Bruce Springsteen…my father was a big fan…I really loved his halftime show, too."
For her own performance, Gaga hopes that viewers will feel the "patriotism of the event."
"I want every guy's girlfriend in his arms," she envisioned. "I want every husband and wife kissing…every kid laughing. In my mind, they're having this really powerful family experience watching the Super Bowl."
