The National Football League informed reporters at Reuters that Madonna will be the main performer of the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show. Her on stage interpretation will be co-created with the help of the famous Cirque Du Soleil.
After many A-list stars made their appearance at the high-profile Super Bowl, it was time for the 53-year-old pop star queen to delight the public at the 2012 edition. This news is not good only for Super Bowl fans, but for the singer, as well. During the past few years, Madonna was no longer in the media’s attention, so she will have a lot to benefit from next year’s appearance, too. She tried to step back into the spotlight with various cinematographic projects but her work wasn’t acknowledged by the public.
In 2012, the Super Bowl will be held in Indianapolis, on February 5 like in every year. The programme is the most wanted broadcast due to the large ratings of audience it produces. The halftime show has become a trademark of the sports event and it is just as popular as the football game itself. The popularity of the event has determined companies to come up with innovative television commercials and now viewers no longer throw stuff at the TV whenever their favorite programme is interrupted by commercials.
The public was very happy to hear that Madonna will concert next year because the 53-year-old star is famous for her provocative performances. The expectations are very big for the 2012 Super Bowl because Madonna’s gig will be organized in collaboration with the creative team from Cirque du Soleil. In addition, analysts think the show will focus primarily on dance and body movement because the pop singer hired choreographer Jamie King who has worked with Prince and Michael Jackson.
In 2010, the Super Bowl halftime show was watched by more than 162 million TV viewers, thus, becoming the most watched musical event of the year. Among the various artists who have made their appearance at the sports event were also Bruce Springsteen, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney and U2. The most controversial moment took place in 2004 during a Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson moment when Jackson’s nipple was exposed.
