Lady Gaga is confirmed to sing the National Anthem.
While we are still in the midst of Queen Bey hysteria, the NFL has officially confirmed an addition to its list of performers for Super Bowl 50, taking place this Sunday, February 7.
For this year’s highly coveted tradition of performing the National Anthem, Lady Gaga is set to hold the honors, while Academy Award winning actress Marlee Matlin is to conduct the song in American Sign Language. Gaga will be following in the footsteps of Diana Ross and Whitney Houston when she performs the technically tricky song before the Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos.
While Coldplay has been brought on to headline the halftime show, with Beyoncé and Bruno Mars also confirmed to perform, there is still plenty of room for more anticipated-but-surprise guests to join in on this huge milestone anniversary for the Super Bowl.
With Gaga recruiting Bey in the past, such as on 2010’s “Telephone,” and Bey returning the favor on her "Video Phone (Remix)," maybe the two powerhouse singers have more tricks up their diamond-studded sleeves and can give us another reason to watch besides the commercials. Well, besides the sports.
The Super Bowl airs on Sunday, February 7 at 6:30 EST on CBS.
