Oh Jacob you’re clearly not a dancer! As a dancer and dance teacher myself, I can tell you Madonna is an exceptional dancer. Great line, placement, attack, energy and musicality. That is why she won a hugely coveted place at the very highly regarde Pearl Lang School of Dance in NYC beating thousands of hopefuls to it. This performance is quite simply awesome. It’s live. Not edited to within an inch of its life like most other pop artists shows. This is why Madonna is still the top touring artist
Awesome choreography? Hahaha. That was like an aerobics class. Gosh, some people need to know what dancing is. Watch what Michael and Janet were doing at the time, THAT is awesome choreography. Also, don’t give the “She was out of tune bc she was singing and dancing”… Beyonce, Gaga, and Ciara all dance and sing at the same time and they sound PERFECT.
I thought the same thing.
On this week Billboard Digital Songs chart Lady Gaga’s “Applause” slips 3-5 with 163,000 (down 25% in its second week)!
Awesome choreography, great dancing. And to all Madonna haters out there: try dancing like this and singing at the same time … I’d love to hear how well you do it. She’s great even when she’s out of tune. Deal with it.
What an amazing performance!!!
Lucian Lauer if you compare the dance ,music ,lyric with Lady Caca you don’t now what is beauty art and wierd art.
Check your facts hun- Madonna has written most of her lyrics and collaborated the actual production of the music. Anyone that has worked with her will admit to that. Also, Madonna spent her early years as a ballet dancer, not learning musical instruments like Gaga did, so Gaga has that over her yes. But overall M was the whole charisma Performing Package. No Gimmick at first just presence and dance.
Do your homework hun : )
30 years and still selling out World wide stadiums says something
I love gaga but there is no area in music and perfomance that lady gaga is better than madonna As a dancer,singer,songwriter madonna is a goddess
The Dancers are Nicky Harris and Donna DeLory. Both started touring with her in 1987 for the Whos That Girl Tour and stayed with her all the up until the Confessions Album in 2005. Only Donna went on to Tour with her on the Confessions Tour 2006.
Cool Please be sure to post the mash up of the songs and performance on the field on here! look forward to it
Gaga might have the vocal range better than M. But lets not kid ourselves, because Madonna was always a much better dancer than Gaga ever is.
Every White country on the planet is forced to become multicultural and multiracial.
Every White country is ordered to “assimilate” its own race and culture to oblivion.
No “anti-racists” demand that of ANY non-White country.
These anti-whites claim to be “anti-racist”, but their actions result in the genocide of only one race, my race, White people. The true goal of immigration and assimilation is to wipe out my race.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
LOL – Born this way is already forgotten kind of song….. But Express Yourself remains an empowerment song and always gets the Ladies up and moving 25 years later.
Please! Born this way was a summer hit……. not a song that will stand the test of time, expecially 25 years from now
STOP THE DRAMA, START THE MUSIC!
That is just corny.
Remember when Madonna was shocking but it meant something? Look at her now and how opinionated she is on issues that matter. Comparing any current female pop star to her would be a disgrace. Those poor girls are lost or confused or going through something. They’re shocking but for all the wrong reasons.
The MFN Queen!
Agree with you, Annette Murray. Pure class. Great dancer, songwriter, great voice that never tries to beat you into submission like so many I could mention. Her live performances are generally so unbelievably brilliant I could weep. And I sometimes do…
she is true class no wardrobe errors or shocks pure entertaiment
This is what the VMAs were all about, talent and the beautiful queen of pop to put a stunning show together.
QUENN! REAL ONE! LOVE U!
STOP HATING AND ENJOY THE DAMN MUSIC
