"Million Reasons" was the only song from Joanne that Lady Gaga chose to include in her Superbowl LI halftime show. The stadium was illuminated by lighters, phones and light-up swag, as crowd members swayed with emotion, during the Interscope star's powerful (and nearly operatic) delivery of the ballad. This was a real moment.

The current single immediately surged up the iTunes chart, where it continues to sit at #1 this morning. 

"Born This Way," "Poker Face" and "Bad Romance"—the other songs she sang during the Super Bowl halftime show—were still in the iTunes Top 10 this morning.

Fans continued to buy her albums overnight as the deluxe edition of Joanne sat at #1 with the standard version coming in at #3. The two editions of The Fame Monster were at #4 and #6; Born This Way was #9 and The Fame sat at #11.

As Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers did a few years ago, Lady Gaga followed the performance with the announcement of a tour that starts 8/1 in Vancouver, B.C. She has 16 shows in North America, including an 8/8 date at The Forum and an 8/28 show at Citi Field in New York, before heading to Europe. Tickets go on sale 2/13.
