Celebs Praise Lady Gaga for Her Rousing Super Bowl 50 Performance
Entertainment| | By Sara Wilkins
Lady Gaga’s Hollywood peers have come out in droves to congratulate the star on her spectacular performance at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. The 29-year-old “Applause” hitmaker kicked off the National Football League sporting event by singing her rendition of the “The Star-Spangled Banner.” She belted out the tune in the middle of the playing field at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, while standing onstage alongside a piano played by a lone pianist.
Gaga was visibly moved while singing, tearing up from time to time, but she still delivered a smooth, flawless show nonetheless, ending the gig with a rich long note while jet planes flew overhead in the sky above the venue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyqkN3zezso Gaga was joined by hearing-impaired Oscar winner Marlee Matlin, who performed the song in American Sign Language, and the 50-year-old actress is elated to have taken part, writing on her Twitter account:
Thespian Alyssa Milano felt shudders as Gaga performed, tweeting:
Well @ladygaga wins the Super Bowl and every other single thing SLAY QUEEN!! ❤️??— krysten ritter (@Krystenritter) February 8, 2016
Gaga’s singing peers were also dazzled by the act. Gaga is currently in the running for a Grammy in the Best Song Written For Visual Media category for her Oscar-nominated Diane Warren collaboration “Til It Happens To You,” from documentary The Hunting Ground. And Warren couldn’t be more proud of her colleague, writing:
Love you so much, @ladygaga. I'm so glad I loaned you my jumpsuit.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) February 7, 2016
