The first half of Super Bowl XLVI is in the books and now so too is the Super Bowl halftime show. The annual spectacle was headlined by Madonna. She was joined by special guests M.I.A., Nicki Minaj, Cee-Lo Green and LMFAO.
The set lasted nearly half an hour. You can check out full video of the entire halftime show below.
Madonna opened the show with "Vogue," after entering the stadium being carried on a throne while being flanked by centurions. She segued into "Music" and danced across bleachers while b-boy dancers backed her up and a man in a toga performed on a tightrope. LMFAO appeared as futuristic centurion-DJs and joined her in a version of "Party Rock Anthem." Another quick costume change and Madonna was joined by cheerleaders, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. to perform their new single, "Gimme All Your Luvin'." Following that spirited performance, Madonna was joined by Cee-Lo Green as a drum major for a snippet of "Express Yourself," later becoming a sequined monk for a uber-dance version of "Like A Prayer." That was the finale of a completely over-the-top show, as Madonna disappeared into thin air to end it.
