Three stars from popular Broadway musical "Hamilton" will perform during the NFL game.

According to The New York Times, the three women known for originating the roles of the Schuyler Sisters in "Hamilton" will perform "America the Beautiful" before the game on Feb. 5.

Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsberry and Jasmine Cephas Jones played Elizabeth, Angelica, and Peggy, respectively. None of the women are currently in the show's cast.

Georgia's Luke Bryan will also perform during the pregame ceremony. He's been tapped to sing the national anthem.

Pop star and frequent Tony Bennett collaborator Lady Gaga is scheduled to serve as this year's halftime performer.

The Super Bowl will take place in Houston this year, but fans can watch from home on FOX.

The game will start at 6:30 p.m., but if you're trying to catch the pregame singers, you should tune in about 10 minutes early.
