Super Bowl Sunday Special: Watch Broadway Get Patriotic with the National Anthem!

While sports-lovers are gearing up for football's biggest night, theatre people are probably more interested in the performances than the Panthers and Broncos. Tonight's halftime show will feature Coldplay, with Beyonce and Bruno Mars, but before that, Lady Gaga will kick off the night with the National Anthem. She joins the ranks of such music legends as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Billy Joel, Ray Charles and many more, in singing the beloved tune for Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, California. Tune in tonight at 6:30 PM on CBS to cheer her on live!

To celebrate the big night, BroadwayWorld is celebrating all of the Broadway performers who have sang the song in the past, including last year's performance from Idina Menzel. Which version is your favorite?
