After being nominated for an Oscar, winning a Golden Globe, and being asked to do an “experimental” David Bowie tribute for the Grammys, Lady Gaga has accepted another phenomenal task this year. That is, to sing the American national anthem in front of a huge crowd in the Levi’s Stadium at the San Francisco Bay Area for Super Bowl 50 on Sunday.
Lady Gaga will kickstart the historical sports night on Sunday. The singer will sing the America’s “Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl 50, while actress Marlee Matlin simultaneously does the American Sign Language, says The Associated Press.
Former artists who have performed the national anthem before at the Super Bowl were Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Cher, Billy Joel, and Idina Menzel. Though Lady Gaga clearly has big shoes to fill, there’s no doubt she can pull the performance off with dignity.
The year 2016 is a great year for the Mother Monster; she got invited to do performances as epic as that of the national anthem and a David Bowie tribute in the upcoming Grammy Awards. And not only that, Lady Gaga won a Golden Globe for her role in the “American Horror Story: Hotel.” The LGBT rights supporter has also been nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song. Can her year get any better?
During the halftime show, Coldplay along with Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Adele, Rihanna, and other musicians will play their hearts out for the eager audience at the Super Bowl. Super Bowl 50 will air on CBS on February 7, Sunday. Make sure that on Sunday, your beer, chips, and other Super Bowl food are beyond your reach while you face the TV. You wouldn’t want to miss a single thing.
