The 90-year-old veteran television actress doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Betty White has captured fans yet again in her latest ad for "The Voice" during last night's Super Bowl.

White made a hilarious cameo in a spot promoting NBC's singing competition show "The Voice," alongside the show's judges Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee-Lo Green.

In the commercial, which is shot like a classic seventies kung fu film, the judges vie to find a mysterious omnipresent voice of a woman singing in a hotel room.

In the spot's opening, someone turns on the water in a shower and begins to sing. The unidentified singer captures the attention of the four judges lounging in the hotel lobby.

Shelton, Aguilera, Green and Levine all duke it out like professional fighters to make it to the mysterious person's hotel room and discover "the voice." Upon kicking down the hotel room door, the four judges are stunned with whom they find belting out a tune in her room: Betty White.

The former Golden Girl emerges from the bathroom in a robe and declared: "It's about time somebody wanted me for my voice...and not my body."

"My eyes are up here," White said to the judges, who are peering at her mischievously at the end of the commercial.

White, who currently stars in the TV Land sitcom "Hot in Cleveland," also starred in a hilarious Super Bowl half time commercial for Snickers in 2010, where she was tackled by a football player for trash-talking.

In January, NBC aired a half-hour special, "Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl," to celebrate White's 90th birthday and honored her contributions to the small screen. Mary Tyler Moore, Carol Burnett, Tina Fey, Vicki Lawrence, Carl Reiner, Amy Poehler and other celebrity friends and fans of White came to show their support and poke fun at the senior star.

"Betty, you're going to hear a lot of jokes tonight about your age. But take comfort in the fact that come tomorrow, you won't remember any of them," comedienne Amy Poehler joked at the celebration.

"I've been the luckiest old broad on two feet to have all the jobs that I've had," White said as she thanked her crowd of guests.
