You knew Lady Gaga was going to bring it after calling the chance to sing the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 “one of the highest honors of my career” — and bring it she did.
The Grammy-winning singer, American Horror Story: Hotel star, and Oscar nominee performed a stripped-down but stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Sunday, and many of her fellow entertainers took to social media to praise her.
Here are some highlights.
Love you so much, @ladygaga. I’m so glad I loaned you my jumpsuit.
