The highest selling female artist of all time…
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist…
7x Grammy Award winner
The hype hit an all-time pitch on Saturday…
Extravagant entrance to “Vogue” with an Gladiator theme to it. She’s looking better than half of her predecessors. Hand choreography on point with an army of dancers that segued into “Music.” The stage follows suit with an array of colors. Another evidence of choreograpgy from the Queen.
Suprise guest LMFAO come in an array and sing a snippet of “Sexy and I Know It.” It seems a little out of place with their vocals being heard. They do manage to do an amazing dance sequence with Madonna showing her flexibility. She keeps up with the young kids and adds the necessary marketability to her performance.
She segues into “give me all your luvin” with Nicki Minaj, MIA, and an array of cheerleaders helping cheer on the Queen of Pop. It’s fun, flirty, and wholesome to keep America entertained with the lackluster single but it works. It kept the visual attack with the pom-poms and screen on the ground. Making their debut as Super Bowl performers, Nicki and MIA delivered their high-energy chants and added to the diversity of collaborators on field.
Last but not least, an explosive drumline comes on the field to amp up the energy and the final suprise guest, Cee-Lo, takes center stage to help with the delivery of “Like A Prayer” , an unusual choice for the Super Bowl but it works. The light show adds a spiritual, fresh connotation to the performance along with the backup choir.
It’s the most raw yet entertaining moments of the show with Cee-Lo and Madonna joining voices. It wouldnt be a Madonna performance if it didnt leave a message so “world peace” is left as she makes her exit.
Overall, it was an entertaining and grandiose spectable befitting of the Queen of Pop. It was the right combination of electrifying visuals, fresh chreography, short cameos from today’s generation, and of course Madonna delivered a memorable, entertaining show.
Bow down, pop stars of today. The Queen is still watching the throne
