No one can replace Beyoncé, but Lady Gaga is a strong consolation.
Gaga is yet to be officially announced as Beyoncé’s replacement, but a statement from Coachella is expected in the next few days. According to sources cited by Consequence of Sound, Adele, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, and Nine Inch Nails were all contacted to regarding the slot before a decision was made.
Like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga has held down a Super Bowl halftime show, performing at the 2017 event earlier this month. She’s expected to have a “huge stage production” at this year’s festival.
Lady Gaga and Beyoncé have previously collaborated on 209’s “Video Phone” and 2010’s “Telephone.”
