Watch Lady Gaga sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl

The worldwide pop star sang the national anthem before Super Bowl 50 on Sunday.

The eventful first two months of 2016 for Lady Gaga continued on Sunday with her performance of The Star-Spangled Banner before Super Bowl 50 at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

The six-time Grammy Award winner sang the anthem just under the time of 2:20 set by oddsmakers in one of Sunday's more memorable Super Bowl prop bets. However, some books are measuring it differently, meaning a few are paying the over. Here's why.

In addition to signing the national anthem on Sunday, Lady Gaga in 2016 won a Golden Globe Award for best performance by an actress in a miniseries or television film for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel. This year she is also nominated for another Grammy, for best song written for visual media, and for an Academy Award for best song, both for Til It Happens To You from the documentary film The Hunting Ground.

"I'm honored to sing for the finest athletes, coaches & fans in the USA," Lady Gaga tweeted on Friday," by the dawns early light."

Sunday also marked the third time actress Marlee Matlin performed the anthem in American sign language, having also done so before Super Bowl XVII alongside Garth Brooks and again before Super Bowl XLI alongside Billy Joel.
