Lady Gaga Absolutely Slays the National Anthem in Sparkling Red at Super Bowl 50

And that's how you do it!

Lady Gaga took the stage at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. before Super Bowl 50 wearing a sparkling red glitter suit with matching eye shadow and stars and stripes on her heels and nails. With her hand over her heart, she waited as the introductory music finished before delivering one of the most beautiful renditions of the "National Anthem" in recent memory.

Her take was restrained and powerful and was perfect for getting the packed stadium -- players and fans alike -- ready for the game.
