After the news of her Super Bowl performance was confirmed by the NFL on February 2, we—along with every Little Monster in the country—have been waiting with bated breath to watch national treasure Lady Gaga belt out the national anthem at this year's Super Bowl 50. True to form, Gaga did not disappoint.

Mother Monster was more than prepared for her big moment. Wearing a gorgeous and tasteful sparkling red Gucci suit, matching red glitter eye shadow, and shimmery blue nails, Gaga looked positively patriotic as she belted the anthem from center field.

Keeping her rendition traditional for most of the song, the classically-trained Academy Award nominee and six-time Grammy winner showed her more theatrical side towards the end of the performance with some powerful riffs, while Academy Award-winner Marlee Matlin signed the anthem alongside Gaga's vocals.

Based on her performance this evening, it wouldn't surprise us if her moment at the Super Bowl will stand the test of time as well.
