Madonna was chosen by the U.S. National Football League (NFL) to be its half-time headline performer.
Along with other music artists such as Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., LMFAO, and Cee Lo Green, Madonna thrilled an audience of more than 100 million (combined number of Lucas Oil Stadium attendees and TV audience across America) this weekend, February 5.
The 53-year old music artist sang her past hits, along with her new single 'Give Me All Your Luvin'.'
Madonna entered the stadium singing 'Vogue' while being pulled by more than a dozen men in Roman centurion costumes. The entrance was reminiscent of a scene from Elizabeth Taylor's 1963 movie Cleopatra.
Onstage, the production was a spectacle as costumed backup dancers and LCD screens flash images from Madonna's past MTVs, in synch with the beat of the singer's song.
Then came a mash-up of Madge's 'Music' and dance rockers LMFAO's 'Party Rock Anthem' and 'Sexy And I Know It.'
Next was Madonna's new single 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' sang with 'Super Bass' singer Nicki Minaj and Brit rapper M.I.A.
This performance became controversial when M.I.A. suddenly flashed a middle finger during her rapping spot. A spokesperson from NBC Sports apologized to the viewers and admitted the network's 'delay system' failed to catch the 'inappropriate gesture' made by M.I.A.
Finally, the Grammy-award winning artist was joined by another Grammy winner Cee Lo Green. Together, along with a big choir, they sang 'Like A Prayer.'
The show ended with the video screens spelling out 'World Peace.'
