The TV was on and our eyes were wide open as Lady Gaga kicked off the Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium with a gospel-inflected performance of the US national anthem ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’.
Wearing a glittering red suit and matching eye shadow, along with American inspired shoes, Gaga performed the anthem into a silvery microphone. Nailed it.
Starting softly, the singer, who is up for an Oscar at the end of the month, slowly built intensity throughout the number before a powerful conclusion. SO Gaga.
The singer is one of many big names to grace the stage at this year Super Bowl, along with Coldplay and Beyonce performing at halftime and Bruno Mars also making an appearance.
