 This week in music many people are starting to rave about the Super Bowl, the 59th Annual Grammy Awards and this week’s music charts.

The Super Bowl halftime show had everyone raving over Lady Gaga and her performance. Many were hopeful that Beyoncé would also be apart of the show, but Gaga turned this claim down almost immediately. On Thursday at her press conference, she gave inside details as to what would be happening during the halftime show and answered a few questions. During her performance, she started out on the top of the stadium and skydived down to her stage. The audience on the field was choreographed and made a bright, flashing show. The songs she performed were a medley of her older songs along with one of her newer songs, “A Million Reasons.”
