As we expected, the 2017 Super Bowl halftime performance is going to be one for the books. Would you expect anything less from Lady Gaga?

The Joanne singer shared a teaser video on Twitter that took us behind-the-scenes into the making of the show. This is an absolute dream come true for Gaga, as she reveals in the clip, "I've been planning this since I was 4, so I know exactly what I'm going to do. For me, it's all about giving to the fans and bringing people together that wouldn't normally come together. The thing is, it's such a big world stage in terms of how many people see it and it's been done so many times."

The Big Apple-born musician definitely has huge shoes to fill as artists like Prince, Beyoncé, Madonna, and Bruce Springsteen have all performed at past halftime shows. But we have no doubts that Gaga will make her own footprint in the performance's history books. She isn't worried either.

"I think the challenge is to look at it and say, 'What can I do differently?," the musician divulged. "How can I elevate certain little things here and there, and also make it about the music?' This is where I'm supposed to be."

We know her performance will be 12 minutes, but we have no idea what songs she will include. And she's definitely been working hard, training every single day.

Gaga also provided a sneak peek into a rehearsal with her dancers in an Instagram post earlier this week.

"Super Bowl rehearsal is so fun," read the Boomerang's video's caption. "We built a tent in my backyard with a dance floor to practice! We love you monsters, can't wait to perform for u!" We've never wanted to be somewhere else so badly.

Super Bowl LI will take place on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. ET So mark your calendars and get your party plans ready!
