Madonna’s Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance marked another legendary moment in the iconic singer’s career. Performing in front of an estimated 110 million people, Madonna showed off her prowess as she effortlessly took to the stage for three of her biggest hits and the first ever live performance of her new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin'”.
Entering the stage on a huge golden throne, Madonna wasted no time letting us know that she is still in fact the Queen of Pop! Accompanied by backup dancers, an illuminated state-of-the-art digital stage, and bit of help from Cee-Lo, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO, and M.I.A. (and her middle finger), Madonna gave stellar performances of “Vogue”, “Music”, “Give Me All Your Luvin'”, and “Like A Prayer”.
At 53 years old, you would think that Madonna would begin to show signs of slowing down, but her halftime show tonight easily rivaled (and even outperformed) some of her much younger peers. Over the last 30 years, Madonna has exhausted her artistry — and I don’t mean that in a bad way. After countless re-inventions, she has continued to shape the pop female landscape and at this point there really isn’t much left that she hasn’t already done. Madonna is here to do exactly what she’s been doing in a way that only she can do it…and that’s make great pop music and entertain audiences.
Some of my love muffins were expecting Madonna to really push the envelope during the show, but what you need to realize that Madonna IS the envelope. If you missed the performance, you can watch it in its entirety below.
I’m super excited for M.D.N.A., which is due out March 26th.
