Lady Gaga kicks off Super Bowl by singing American National anthem

Lady Gaga took centre stage at this year's Super Bowl to sing the American national anthem!

The quirky star belted out the words to 'Star Spangled Banner' ahead of the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos taking to the football field while wearing a custom-made red sequinned Gucci pantsuit.

Gaga has referred to her Super Bowl performance as “one of the highest honours” of her career.

She told the NFL Network before the game, "I’ve always wanted to sing the National Anthem at a major sporting event since I was a little girl. This is one of the highest honours of my career. I get a chance to sing for all the athletes who have been working so hard their whole like for this moment."

Beyonce and Coldplay will headline the half time show at the event in Santa Clara, California.
