The retractable roof at NRG Stadium opened up so the singer could make a Spider-Man-like appearance, leaping from the roof to the stage below.
Before making the jump, she performed a brief patriotic medley, singing bits of "God Bless America" and "This Land Is Your Land," and quoting the Pledge of Allegiance before making the impressive jump.
After landing, Gaga performed a variety of her hits, including "Born This Way" and "Bad Romance." She encouraged her Houston audience to roar at their home-state "Poker Face" opening line, "I wanna hold 'em like they do in Texas, please."
Gaga was backed not just by dancers and singers, but by 300 lit-up drones that shone like stars in the night sky.
Gaga started the show in a glittery bodysuit, later adding a gold jacket with spiked shoulders, then stripping down to football shoulder pads, a bare belly and sparkly shorts.
She ended her concert with not only a dramatic mic drop while standing in high heels atop a tower with flames flashing behind her, but by catching a football. (Try that, Tom Brady and Matt Ryan.)
Fans declared the performance to be a touchdown.
