Singers Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsberry and Jasmine Cephas Jones, who were the original Schuyler sisters in the hit play, reunited before the game for a three-part harmony to a version of 'America the Beautiful.'

However the trio made an inclusive editing choice to the last line which usually is sung: 'And crown thy good with brotherhood / From sea to shining sea.'

Twitter also became ablaze with comments on the rendition of the song with 'And Sisterhood' trending on the site.

Author of 'Women Who Dont Wait In Line' Reshma Saujani said she kept watching the clip 'over and over' and the 'future is female.'

Twitter user, Tessa Newell, said: 'We can stop the game now, the Schuyler Sisters already won.'

Lady Gaga wooed viewers by dropping from the top of Houston's NRG Stadium to open her halftime show and dropped the mic at the end, offering a program that delivered high-energy hits and an inclusive theme.

The performance included snippets of 'God Bless America' and 'This Land is Your Land' with red and blue lights twinkling above her.
