Super Bowl XLVI is still a couple of months away, but that hasn’t prevented Madonna from rehearsing for the big day. We all know how much of a perfectionist she is, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Word has it, Madge started working on her 15-minute halftime show this week. According to fan site Madonnarama.com, her performance will include a medley of five songs from her discography.
Seeing that her 13th studio album drops next year, one of the tracks will be her lead-off single, “Gimme All Your Luvin’“, previously titled as “Give Me All Your Love”. Expect both Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. who appear on the track, to join Madonna in Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI. I can’t wait to see what Minaj is going to wear.
Have any guesses on what the other four songs will be? Being that it’s a sporting event, don’t expect any of her hit ballads, but rather her biggest dance pop hits instead. I have to say the “Material Girl” singer did an excellent job of picking songs to represent different parts of her long career. She has something from her debut album all the way to her upcoming one. See if you can correctly predict the other four tracks before reading ahead.

It’s only fitting she include her first Top 40 hit on this momentous occasion. I wonder if any network affiliates are worried for another wardrobe malfunction. If this were in the 90s, I’d say be very afraid, but Madge is in her 50s now and far more respectful. That and she would never do anything to mimic Janet Jackson.

Arguably one of her biggest hits ever. Will she update the iconic dance moves? or swap out a few of the old Hollywood screen legends for football players during the rap? Hmmm.

Personally, one of my favorites from her. This will definitely get everyone off their seats and jump and down along with the singer. “Zephyr in the sky” … maybe not, but there will definitely a Good-Year blimp and I’m not referring to Minaj’s ample booty.

I have to say I was surprised she picked “Music” instead of “Hung Up“. When I discovered that “Music” is her only Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 in the 2000s, it all made sense. Still, I’d rather hear the ABBA-inspired track instead.
What do you think of her choices? Which one(s) do you wish, Madonna selected instead? Sound off below.
