100 million people just watched Madonna shuffling with LMFAO

If you’re one of the people quietly hoping for LMFAO to quietly fade away…don’t hold your breath. The dance-pop outfit’s ringleaders SkyBlu and Redfoo last night took the stage at the Super Bowl XLVI as part of Madonna’s half-time show…for an estimated audience of over 100 million people (okay, not all of them would’ve been glued to the screen at this exact moment). Now we have all been treated to the sight of the 53-year-old pop star ‘shuffling’ with the Party Rockers in front of America’s biggest TV audience.

The appearance of LMFAO in a kind of Gladiators-meets-Village People garb wasn’t deemed the most offensive sight at half-time, though. That (dis)honour went to cult favourite M.I.A., who flipped the middle finger to the camera during her guest appearance during Madonna’s new single, Give Me All Your Luvin’. Why won’t she think of the children? “The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing, and we apologise to our fans,” said NBC Spokesman Brian McCarthy.

Perhaps the most insane aspect of the whole affair, however, was the extravagant stage set-up for Madonna’s 13 minutes at centre field. We’d like to see that kind of budget funnelled towards a 2012 Daft Punk tour…

To be honest the whole thing was pretty good with the glaring exception of the LMFAO bit. What was she thinking???!!???

Shuffling in high heels is retarded! (even though what they were doing in no way resembles shuffling)

Regardless of whether you like her music, that was a pretty impressive stage show.

best quote on madonnas performance came from Glenn Morrison:
"Is it just me or did Madonna look like her uterus was going to fall out on stage?! She needs to retire"
