Lady Gaga was born for this performance!

E! News can confirm the "Just Dance" singer is set to deliver the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this coming Sunday. The Grammy winner's live performance will be televised from Levi's Stadium in the San Francisco Bay Arena minutes before kickoff.

As for how many people could be watching this performance, how does 118 million viewers sound? That's the number of people who tuned into last year's Super Bowl making it the most watched television program in history.

If anyone can handle the pressure, though, it has to be Gaga herself!

Besides selling out arenas all around the world and performing on some pretty impressive stages, Taylor Kinney's leading lady has some experience belting out more than a few hits.

In fact, the latest gig comes hours after The Recording Academy announced the 29-year-old would perform at the 2016 Grammy Awards. The Mother Monster will deliver an "Experiential" tribute to the late David Bowie who will also be receiving a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award.

"We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year's show, but when David passed—almost in a single moment—we knew we had to change direction,"  Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a press release. "We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She's perfect for it."

While the Grammys will surely be a star-studded event, Super Bowl 50 will also have its share of famous faces.

Marlee Matlin will perform the National Anthem in American Sign Language. In addition, the halftime show will feature Coldplay and Queen Beyoncé. And if that wasn't enough to get you pumped, a source recently shared with E! News that the NFL hopes to showcase other impressive acts. In fact, the show is expected to highlight "the past, present and future of music."

Super Bowl 50 airs Sunday afternoon only on CBS.
