Little Monsters, there is officially a very important reason to tune into Super Bowl 50 on Sunday (February 7): Lady Gaga is performing the national anthem.

The news was confirmed by the NFL by the Associated Press today (February 2).

Gaga's got a pretty busy month ahead of her: Not only is she performing at the Super Bowl, but she's due to perform a tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys the following week.

And just in case you'd like a taste of what's to come, watch Mother Monster belt out the anthem at the NYC Pride Rally in 2013.
