|Madonna in action at the Super Bowl|
She came. She saw. And she conquered BIG TIME! Madonna, The Queen Of Pop made a welcome return to the live stage with her very successful with her half time performance at the half time show of the Super Bowl. She delved into some classic hits and touched on some new ones. USATODAY reports Madonna, backed by a marching band dressed as soldiers of antiquity and a capacity crowd armed with flashlights, tacked on to the tradition of increasingly extravagant Super Bowl halftime shows. Some of hip-hop's biggest acts joined Madonna, who promised no controversy in pre-show interviews. The pop icon, 53, said earlier during Super Bowl week there would be no wardrobe malfunctions, a la Super Bowl XXXVIII when Justin Timberlake tore off a piece of Janet Jackson's top. Between halves , producers erected a stage which spanned some 30 yards, 11 additional light banks, and a white screen in front of the stage which showed accompanying light effects and images, including a montage of film actors from the black and white era and a final message: World Peace. The show, which borrowed the creative direction of Cirque du Soleil, featured several dancers bouncing about on a highwire above the stage, not unnoticed by the buzzing crowd.
