It's official: Lady Gaga will headline Coachella in place of Beyoncé, who announced last week she will be unable to perform due to her pregnancy.

Beyoncé earlier this month confirmed she and Jay Z are expecting twins. She would have been in the third trimester of her pregnancy by Coachella, which is in April. She'll instead headline in 2018.

The news caps a stellar month for Gaga, who performed at the Super Bowl halftime show this month and a week later she performed alongside Metallica at the Grammy Awards. She also announced a massive world tour, which begins in August.

Gaga joins a Coachella roster that also includes Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar as fellow headliners.

Coachella is set for April 14-16 and April 21-23 in Indio, California.
