The show reminded me of Richard Gere's tour de force in "Chicago": "Razzle-dazzle "em." It was all glitz, glitter, and gaudy glamor--but lacking in substance: candy for the mind...something to distract, keep eyes moving, give viewers the impression that they were being entertained while allowing heart and spirit to doze amid all the noise and hoopla.
If you check out the original video, you will see the MIA gal that flipped did it there, too. Not that I think it was necessary, but it was nothing new to the video.
As a mother of 3 grown childre and grandmother of 5 I was so pleased with her performance.
I am happy to say that my granparents and her grandparents came from the same little town in L'Aquila province called Pacentro!!!!
Madonna is a has-been..... in my opinion, she never was a great talent and this just proves that. Great talent would be continuing to come up with better, newer stuff, not playing Golden Oldies. But then, she's a golden oldie herself now.... Put the gag in her mouth and call her finished.
It was mesmerizing watching her navigate in those heels.
She has still got it!
Too bad some punk tried to up stage her by showing her IQ with her middle finger.
This performer showed no class, in my opinion!
I think if you are going to do a poll, you should probably NOT give your opinion on the show with your request. There were probably many GLAD's at the Super Bowl and I don't think it was necessary to reference Madonna's performance with any one group of people. Those of us who enjoyed the game and also enjoyed the half-time show are more than likely the majority.
How long can you go on lipsyncing and trying to dup an audience? She should have hung up her cone bra long a go! She says GAGA copies her, at least GAGA really sings and moves at the same time. Madonna ripped off her entrance from the movie Cleopatra when Elizabeth Taylor entered Rome! She is the biggest copycat ever!
Faking your singing to TAPED MUSIC is like cheating at musicians college. It was bad, boring and fake.
Worst Super Bowl halftime show to date. It was obvious that everybody was lip syncing with the exception of Cee Lo Green. How Madonna has fallen, she used to be so talented. Also, LMFAO is beyond terrible.
*sigh* YUK. Love her old stuff but really? 2 decades on? "Music" + 1 crap new song + snippets and cameos from others. Utter rubbish. Very very sad :(
Apparently Madonna has gotten to old to walk and sing at the same time! The only part of the show that was even remotely interesting was when she was singing with T-Rex lookalike CeeLo Green at the end. This was just as bad as the Black Eyed Peas last year! Can we start getting some good artists to perform during Halftime please
I think that Madonna put on a class performance for everyone. When I say everyone, I mean that this was a half time that everyone age 1 to 100 could enjoy. It takes a ton of planning and talent to do something like this and she really pulled it off. It was entertaining and fun. The best I have seen in years.
you think any part of that was live? idiot.
I am pretty sure on of the singers flipped the bird. Real classy.
