She explained: "I just thought about the lyrics and what they really mean. They've been around a long time, so I thought about what they mean now, I just sang from my heart.

"It's kind of ancient history stuff, in the Greek and Roman history, performing for the greatest athletes in the world is the highest honour. I'm Italian and European, so, for me, it was such an honour as an American."

Accompanied to the event by her mother Cynthia, she did her best to take in the moment so it wouldn't pass her by in a flash.

Gaga continued: "It was really amazing, the athletes were just kind of majestic standing up there, singing for the fans in the stands and all over the world, it was so cool."

Enjoying the view as the closed out the anthem and watched the jets overheard, she said: "I promised myself I was going to look up to see them, because that would be the only time (I'd get to do that)."
