Five days after Beyoncé announced she’d be dropping out of her Coachella headlining spot — because, you know, she’s pregnant with twins — the massive music festival has found her replacement: Lady Gaga. According to Billboard, the “Bad Romance” singer will headline both Saturday nights, April 15 and 22, and she’s bringing her dazzling, and very complicated, stage production with her. If Gaga’s theatrics are half as spectacular as her Super Bowl LI performance it’ll likely be all anybody in Indio, California, will talk about, at least until 2018, when Beyoncé is rescheduled to retake her slot as queen of the highest-grossing festival in America.
