Flashback: Super Bowl Halftime Show 2012
As Beyonce prepares to take the stage for the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show, "Extra" takes a look back at Madonna's 2012 performance. She rocked it, playing a combination of some oldies-but-goodies such as "Vogue," and also her latest single "Give Me All Your Luvin'," featuring LFMAO, Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo Green and M.I.A.
Take a look!
After the show last year, some celebrities weighed in via Twitter on the performance:
"30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin heaped on the praise, writing, "Two quarters of SuperBowl and the strongest performer is Madonna...You gotta hand it to Madonna. No apologies."
Paula Abdul wrote, "so happy for #Madonna 's triumphant #HalfTime show! :) @NICKIMINAJ & M.I.A. crushed it! @CeeLoGreen & @LMFAO added so much fun!"
Steve Martin wrote, "Congrats to Madonna for great spot, especially considering game has resumed during last three minutes."
Actress Eva Longoria wrote, "Madonna is amazing!!! Love her always! What a performer! All my fav songs!"
Rosie O'Donnell kept it simple, writing: "Madonna = perfection"
Rapper Snoop Dogg added: "Madonna killen the superbowl her show is soo fresh. Wowoowowowowowoowowowowowow!"
Seth MacFarlane commented on LMFAO's contribution to the performance, writing, "The way they rhymed "Madonna" with "you wanna" was terrific. Just tremendous. And a bunch of times! Which was also great. Music is great."
Ryan Seacrest also praised the halftime show, writing, "Loved the madonna performance, i think she nailed it. Great job by @LMFAO, @NickiMinaj, @CeeloGreen too."
The halftime show did have one moment of controversy. NBC apologized for not catching M.I.A. when she gave the middle finger during her performance. "We apologize for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime," NBC spokesman Christopher McCloskey said. "It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late."
