Lady Gaga's Perfect Super Bowl Halftime Show in 15 Perfect GIFs

When there was a magical twinkly-star drone ballet

When she did a literal swan dive into the arena

When she confirmed our long-held suspicion that she's a superhero

When she did a very credible audition for Cirque du Soleil

When we saw familiar faces in the dancer crowd (Montana Efaw Sloan-Taylor Rabinor Karen Chuang China Taylor!)

When she worked it with those familiar faces as they WERKED their purple cape-vests

When she pulled out an amazing neon jewel of a space phone

When she got dramatically carried (Mariah Carey-ed?) down the runway

When she looked soooo (appropriately) Beyoncé during "Telephone"

WHEN THERE WERE THESE GUYS IN THESE JACKETS

When she had the flyest microphone holder of all time

When she managed to do choreo while playing the piano

When the whole cast channeled CATS

When Mr. Victor Rojas got DOWN WITH HIS BAD SELF

When she didn't just drop the mic, but dropped the mic, caught a bedazzled football and jumped to what we sincerely hope was not her actual death

✨🙌 #ThankYouGaga 🙌✨

Isabella Boylston in "The Bright Stream" (Rosalie O'Connor, courtesy American Ballet Theatre)

Beloved by ballet fans for her lucid technique and onstage effervescence, by her Instagram followers for the deftly curated photos and videos she shares of her glamorous life, and by fangirl Jennifer Garner for all of the above, American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston is one of the rare ballet stars who's achieved mainstream fame. A native of Sun Valley, ID, Boylston trained at the Academy of Colorado Ballet and the Harid Conservatory before joining the ABT Studio Company in 2005. She entered the main company as an apprentice in 2006, and attained principal status in 2014. In addition to her successes with ABT, where she dances nearly every major ballerina role, Boylston has served as artistic director of the annual Ballet Sun Valley Festival, which brings high-level performances and classes to her hometown. And speaking of famous Jennifers: Boylston recently appeared as Jennifer Lawrence's dance double in the film Red Sparrow. Catch her onstage with ABT as Manon, Odette/Odile, and Princess Aurora during the company's Metropolitan Opera House season this summer in NYC. —Margaret Fuhrer
