Lady Gaga will sing the US national anthem at the American football Super Bowl on Sunday.

The NFL said Gaga will sing The Star-Spangled Banner at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, where the Carolina Panthers will take on the Denver Broncos.

Academy Award winning actress Marlee Matlin will perform in American Sign Language during the national anthem.

Super Bowl 50's half time show performers include Coldplay and Beyonce.

Gaga's upcoming performance during the Super Bowl is another notch in her belt, after she won a Golden Globe last month for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel.

And she is nominated for best original song at the next month's Academy Awards with Til It Happens To You, which she wrote with Diane Warren for the sexual assault documentary The Hunting Ground.

The song is also nominated for a Grammy at the February 15 awards show, where Gaga will pay tribute to David Bowie with a performance.

Last year, Gaga wowed audiences at the Oscars when she paid tribute to The Sound Of Music with a show-stopping performance. She won her sixth Grammy for her collaborative jazz album with Tony Bennett, and she was named woman of the year by Billboard.

Tony-winning actress and Let It Go singer Idina Menzel sang the national anthem at last year's Super Bowl.
