Madonna’s 2012 Super Bowl Halftime Show Voted The Greatest

Rolling Stone conducted a poll on their site as to who readers thought put on The Greatest Super Bowl Halftime Show and the result was Madonna‘s spectacular 2012 performance. The Queen incorporated Cee Lo Green, LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, M.I.A. and even acrobats into her elaborate show. The next day, tickets for her world tour went on sale and then sold out everywhere.

This year, Beyonce is taking the lead for the Super Bowl Halftime show and I’m certainly not worried about her delivering. She’s going to kill it I’m sure – the only thing I’m eager to know is who else is going to be involved. Is Justin Timberlake actually going to be taking the stage with her? Will all three Destiny’s Child members reunite on stage for some of their greatest hits? Can you imagine if Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Azealia Banks performed their upcoming “Rachet” song? Insanity.

Re-watch Madonna’s epic show from last year below and check out how Rolling Stones readers ranked the other shows that make up the Top 10 list.
