On Tuesday, the identity of another major Super Bowl performer was revealed, the singer of the national anthem: Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga.

Coldplay are due to headline the half-time performance, with a much-hyped appearance by Beyoncé thrown in there too.

Gaga is just one of several celebrities performing during the biggest sports event of the year. That is, to sing the American national anthem in front of a huge crowd in the Levi's Stadium in San Francisco for Super Bowl 50 on Sunday.

She will be joined by hearing-impaired Oscar victor Marlee Matlin, who will perform the song in American Sign Language.

Gaga will tag herself along the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson who has sung the national anthem at previous Super Bowl's.

The last time Gaga performed the national anthem on a stage near this size was in 2013 when she kicked off New York City's Gay Pride Parade.

It has been reported by the Associated Press that Lady Gaga will perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" at this year's Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl airs Sunday Feb. 7, on CBS, with kickoff at 6:30/7:30c.

Earlier on Tuesday it was announced that the singer, who is in the midst of a major comeback, will pay tribute to iconic rock provocateur David Bowie during the Grammys. She has been engaged to the "Chicago Fire" actor for nearly a year now.
