Lady Gaga National Anthem

Lady Gaga Sings National Anthem at Super Bowl: Watch Video and Grade It

Stefani Germanotta, often referred to by her stage name Lady Gaga, made a special appearance at Sunday’s Super Bowl to honor the land of the free and home of the “yass!”

And even without her signature bells and whistles — there was nary a hair bow nor meat dress in sight — her performance remained uniquely Gaga, while also avoiding eye-rolls from your weird, closed-minded aunt who refuses to leave your Super Bowl party. (Though not even your aunt could knock Gaga’s patriotic pantsuit.)

2016 has been really good to Gaga so far: She’s fresh off a starring role in FX’s American Horror Story: Hotel, for which she earned a Golden Globe, and she’s set to perform a special tribute to David Bowie at the Grammy Awards on Monday, Feb. 15. (Side note: How annoying is it that the Grammys are on a Monday this year?)

Was it the best National Anthem of all time? I don’t know, I’m not one of those monster people who values one brave display of patriotism over another. I do, however, think we can critique this performance within itself, so do your civic duty by watching the performance below and casting your vote below. #democracy
