Madonna Gives Performance Of A Lifetime At Super Bowl

Super Bowl spectators eager to have the godawful taste of the Black Eyed Peas' halftime performance from last year washed out their mouths were thankfully treated to Madonna's defining 13-minute set at the big game tonight.

The Material Girl bumped, grinded and twirled her way through "Vogue," "Music," "Party Rock Anthem/Sexy And I Know It" (with LMFAO), "Give Me All Your Luvin'" (with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.) and "Open Your Heart/Express Yourself/Like A Prayer" (with Cee Lo Green).

The finale bit, during "Like A Prayer," was pretty moving. Seriously, will anyone ever be able to top this broad's halftime gig? So many wigs were snatched, and Madge simply used them as pom poms.

Immediately after Madonna's performance, "Give Me All Your Luvin'" shot to #3 on iTunes.

    Dude. Not only that, the pre-order of MDNA is #1 and Celebration is #3. Like a Virgin is #134. Even the original Madonna album is #141 and True Blue is #175.

    Suck on that, Gaga.

    Went back and watched Diana Ross perform at 1996 Super Bowl.Now that was a PERFORMANCE. She SANG. She engaged the audience. And, no 'let's get the latest young hip singers to join me and bolster my creds'. It was HER show and SHE did it.

    (Hee, hee, you know you've lost it when you have to fling the hate at Gaga!!)

    All the Madonna fans are so blinded by their love for her. It wasn't even a good performance. It was "trying too hard" embodied and acted out for 13 minutes.

    I could've sworn I boxed up that old dead cheerleader sometime back in the nineties. Creepy.

    "Like a Prayer" was fucking transcendent. In the moment, I believed again.

    The Diana Ross Super Bowl performance was good, but I thought it was a little jarring when she started cooing "Fuck you, Mary Wilson" at the end of "Baby Love" until they tasered her ancient pussy and helicoptered her away to Bellevue.

    A: Anyone who has the balls to sing live.

    It was a pure perfection! From "Vogue" moving covers to an epic "Like a Prayer" - amazing.

    Just watched diana ross' half time performance. Wow i was blown away. Talk about a grand exit ! Comparing madonna and DR performances is wrong. Diana did sing live however she dis no dancing. You take away all the dancers and the helicopter all u have is a woman standing there singing. Madonna had all that but also dance and got into her groove. Her show was spectacular.

    Oh to the anonymous poster before " fuck you more!"

    There was a lot of hype, but I thought it delivered. Much better than BEP last year, which was a big disappointment.

    M is on the downside of her career, no question. But so what? No one stays on top forever. She's been big for a LONG time. True, she's been a master at creating hype, but the fact remains- she holds the all time record for most top 10 hits on Billboard's Hot 100. And will probably extend her record with this next single.

    My favorite part is how is she did the gayest song she's ever recorded and performed it in the gayest possible way with the gayest dancers wearing the gayest outfits. For the Superbowl.
