Most years, people watch the Super Bowl to see a bunch of men playing football. This year, a number of eyes are glued to TV sets primarily to see a 53-year-old woman in a gold Viking costume sing and dance — got a problem with that? (Okay, and maybe a few watched for Kelly Clarkson.) Regardless of which team emerges as the champ of Super Bowl XLVI, we declare that everyone who catches Madonna’s halftime performance of “Give Me All Your Luvin’” is a winner. If you missed it — or if you, like us, would like to revisit the magic about 600 more times — catch Madonna’s nipple-free Super Bowl halftime show below.
As you know doubt have seen by now, the “Give Me All Your Luvin’” video nicely incorporated the football theme (unfortunately, the Giants and the Patriots did not team up together to help Madge walk on the sides of any walls for this performance). For the Super Bowl, her Madgesty decided to go with a more grandiose theme and pulled out all the stops (a Trojan army, Zodiac-inspired costumes, a marching band, and a choir, to be specific) to perform “Vogue,” “Music,” and “Give Me All Your Luvin’” with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj — complete with pom-poms, as promised.
There was also a “Party Rock Anthem”/ “Sexy And I Know It” mashup with LMFAO and “Open Your Heart,” “Express Yourself,” and “Like A Prayer” with Cee Lo Green, before Madonna disappeared down into the stage (hopefully to resurface soon).

That woman has some serious energy! (Must be all the MDNA.)
