Lady Gaga soars at the Super Bowl

LADY Gaga kicked off her Super Bowl halftime show with a dramatic entrance ... performing on the roof of the stadium, then jumping off suspended by wires.

The Perfect Illusion singer is sporting dramatic Bowie-inspired eye make-up and a silver sleeved bodysuit for the performance, where she spoke about uniting America.

WATCH the full performance:

Her set, flanked by fireworks and back-up dancers, included a medley of Telephone, Just Dance, Edge of Glory, Born This Way, Million Reasons, Bad Romance unbelievably quick costume changes.

It was almost more of a stunt show than a pop show with Gaga suspended by wires.

The Super Bowl is back at the scene of its most controversial-ever halftime show - Janet Jackson's 'wardrobe malfunction' more than a decade ago.

Gaga even took a moment to say hi to her parents during the 12-minute performance, which failed to feature any of the overtly political statements many expected from the Hillary Clinton supporter.

That decision has won her heaps of praise on social media from viewers who are clearly growing tired of the endless stress of anti-Trump outrage.

Even though there were no major mishaps, that didn't stop viewers from quickly generating memes about Gaga's medley.

The only major gripe from fans so far appears to be that she didn't include any songs from her Artpop album in the performance.
