Thanks to the magic of television, Lady Gaga was able to trick viewers at home into believing she jumped from the roof of the NRG Stadium during the Super Bowl halftime show.
According to TMZ, Gaga performed the death-defying stunt ahead of her real performance and the pre-recorded footage of her flying down to the stage was aired for viewers at home.
At the stadium, Gaga was already suspended over the middle of the stadium when cameras picked up the shot, which can be seen in a video recording from an audience member. Still, she did not use a stunt double.
So, she didn’t do it live, but the fact that she did it at all has generated lots of attention.
