VIDEO: Madonna Halftime Show with LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, M.I.A. & Cee Lo
There was obviously a ridiculous amount of hype surrounding this year’s Super Bowl Halftime show with Madonna, but I think she came out and totally slayed the show last night. The performance started with some old-school gladiator shit thrown on the top of “Vogue,” which medleyed itself into “Music” not too far after the song started. Stages were shifting, performers were dancing themselves in and out of the picture, and then LMFAO makes an appearance with a “Music” / “Party Rock Anthem” mashup performed live. We even got a little “Sexy and I Know It” before the new Madonna song showed up. Seeing Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. dance on stage with Madonna was a treat, and M.I.A. took the chance to stay at the top of the headlines today by flipping off the camera live on her “I don’t give a shit” line in the song. Then somehow Cee Lo showed up leading a drum line which brought out “Open Your Heart” and “Express Yourself.” Then “Like a Prayer” made everyone feel like they were in church…
This may have been my favorite Super Bowl halftime show ever.
