Madonna Performs at Super Bowl Halftime Show with Nicki Minaj & M.I.A. [Video]

Nicki Minaj and Madonna

The Giants and the Patriots weren’t the only stars on the field on Super Bowl Sunday. Madonna put on a thrilling performance during the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The pop queen delivered a dazzling medley of her greatest hits in front of over 100 million viewers.

Dressed as a gladiator in Givenchy, she made a grand entrance to “Vogue” before joining acrobats from Cirque du Soleil for “Music” and LMFAO on their hits “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy and I Know It.” Pom poms in hand, she marched into her new single “Give Me All Your Luvin’” with her cheerleading squad including firecracker Nicki Minaj and a middle finger-flipping M.I.A.

After segueing into “Open Your Heart” and “Express Yourself,” Cee Lo Green helped the Material Girl take it to church with “Like a Prayer,” accompanied by a gospel choir. Twelve minute later, she disappeared through a cloud of smoke to roaring applause and the words “World Peace” spelled out on the floor.

    @nicki 101, Bitch sit down and shut the fuck up. This was Madonna’s time to shine, not that damn disgrace to the black community’s.

    @Triniti, What’s funny is that you’re probably black with a name like Triniti and you cant spell communities correctly. Do yourself a favor and don’t comment on so-called black “community’s” when you can’t even spell properly. Nicki is a black woman getting paid and for NICKI MINAJ (just for emphasis) to be on the Super Bowl with only ONE album out… c’mon. Huge.

    @Aaron,co-sign nicki being up there with madge is a big deal,but for nicki still being new on the main and is performing at the supper bowl is huge,look were she is coming from some dirty hall ways 3 years ago rapping,it,s not like she had some famous musician family name to live off of she came from scratch,she is a diamon in the dust,wayne sign her and she took the help build her self up,because she didn’t want to be at the bottom anymore are being just another rap female she wanted to make a name for her self and be up there with the greats no matter her back ground,she put in mad work and it,s paying of.

    The best part was the vogue intro. She should have done this years ago when she was younger so she could properly slay.

    This Just In:

    Party City wants their outfits returned immediately! They were disappointed with the lip-syncing and slow motion robot numbers. Maybe without the all the excessive Botox ol’ Madge could have been mobile. Too bad she was stiff as shit and mummified beyond belief. Better luck next lifetime! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL :)

    Liked the beginning and the end, the new stuff was so blah, though the Vogue beginning looks like it was inspired from Kylie’s Aphrodite tour……And yes Madonna looked stiff, she had better choreography on her Sticky & Sweet tour.

    “What rappers lil synch?” Obviously MIA and Nicki Minaj do “What rappers perform at Superbowl half time shows with icons?” is the better question. The haters will always find something, if Nicki was onstage for 2 seconds, your favs would have still been at home watching.

    Nicki and MIA just lip-synched. The performance of that song was a letdown, with all three of them lip singing and lip rapping. SMH. Madge is stiff as anything…she did good with the singing when she did sing. The best part was the end with Cee Lo. Great visuals, but Madge was so stiff.

    Madonna once again conquered and re-iterated y she is The Queen. If there is even the slightest of truths to any of u haters comments then Madonna will not be in the record books as the best entertainer in the world,and still grossing the most in album sales and her concerts. Well done MADONNA – L U V MADONNA

    People are such idiots. They always lipsync at the Super Bowl. There is no way possible for your voice to carry throughout an entire stadium with music playing behind it and you still sound good.

    Most of you people criticizing have obviously never been to football game.

    [Reply]

    Watever Reply:

    @NEUTRON, Cee-lo was clearly singing live. And artists at past superbowls sang live too. I’m sorry but there is no excuse for a rapper to lip-synch because they dont have to sing in tune. Thats just lazy performing.

    For her age and all, I think she killed it. A lot of people say it sucked but she exceeded my expectations. She delivered a good medley of songs and the effects were top notch. Great job!!!

    LMAOOOOO

    Nicki & MIA were on for like 30 seconds. Nicki did her lil rap thing then she blended in with the back-up dancers, like I didn’t even notice her. The backup dancers were more noticeable. MIA was just WTF. Overhyped and lip-synched, although Madge can move.
