Let’s not get ahead of ourselves in thinking we won’t get new music till May... Eurovision is not broadcast worldwide. I doubt Madonna would use the event to launch the Album worldwide and especially not for US markets. If the report is accurate the performance would be part of her Europe promo... she could even announce European tour dates at this event. I still have faith we’ll get a new single sooner.Â đŸ€žÂ 

She launched MDNA in an event for a sport that most countries don't care for.

......before M performed I’d never heard of The Super Bowl Haltime Show 😬 but since she performed it seems to be “a thing” that gets reported on in Europe. 

It was a thing pre-Janet Justin nipple hate, then it became tame and no one cared. Since M brought back the star power of it, it’s a thing again and yet no one has topped it to her level

Based on the Sanremo Music Festival held in Italy since 1951, Eurovision has been broadcast every year since its inauguration in 1956, making it the longest-running annual international television contest and one of the world's longest-running television programmes. It is also one of the most watched non-sporting events,[8] with audience figures of between 100 million and 600 million internationally.[9][10] It has been broadcast in several countries that do not compete, such as the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and China. Since 2000, it has been broadcast online via the Eurovision website

Everyone in America knows what Eurovision is if they go on the Internet. We don’t watch it, but we hear about it. If there was a viral moment, it would register with everyone online for at least a 12 hour news cycle. That’s massive in this retarded era of integrated numbskull attention spans.

No one in America has even heard about it. It made a bit of press with the last winner but it’s not on any cable network or basic channel.

But who?? Only people who care. General public has no idea what Eurovision is. I travel a lot throughout the states and every time I bring up Eurovision, literally NO ONE knows what it is.

Enjoy.

I was just going to post the exact same video :laugh:

But let's just say there are MANY exhibits why Eurovision isn't exactly the pinnacle of high art...

BUT this is a huge part of the appeal and in between those crazy songs, you do have some really strong acts putting on great performances and presenting very good songs. IMO this, for example, is still an outstanding performance:

And of course...ABBA!

The churning part was everywhere on social media for a while in Mexico...

OMG, we have a lot of poor quality/tacky programs in US as well, but OMG the links you guys have posted here are... no words.

Who cares about it being cheesy and nothing in the U.S. This is very easy promo for Europe which will pack a heavy and far reaching punch there. The total audience for it in Europe is ridiculously massive and about double what the Super Bowl generates in the U.S. When she comes on to perform her set with her high production values it will really stand out. Like the Super Bowl it will educate the European general public who have been oblivious to her musician power for years and remind casual and lost fans about what she is capable of as a performer. She got universal acclaim in the U.S. for the Super Bowl and it helped her easily sell out stadiums with expensive priced tickets all over the U.S.

Euphoria is amazing, both song and performance

:thumbsup:I sooo agree with you. She will be the talk around town in all EU countries for weeks! It will expose her to a massive audience that forgot about her or don't know her music at all.

It will be a mashup of Candy Shop and...this:

 

and/or mashup of candy shop and human nature but with “i’m not your toy” instead of “i’m not your bitch” part

Eurovision is meant to be tacky, it’s all part of the fun. It’s high camp. I’m more up for her being on it over X-Factor.

Madonna being on Eurovision is clever marketin, regardless if some feel the contest is beneath them. EV is popular in many counties and this exposure is very good for her career. Even if the contester's songs will be shit, it is a good business move. End of.

The only thing I don’t like about cheesy European shows is that I feel like her image keeps being lumped together with one hit wonders, and pop acts like Kylie M . As long as they have a plan n the music transcends! 

But I’d rather see her image grouped with acts like Björk, Bowie, goldfrapp, lana del Rey, Sophie , etc. I’d  rather see the New pr go that route

You in America do not understand this, but believe me, everyone in Europe knows and will watch this competition. Europe is 1.5 billion people and there is no better platform for promoting Europe, Russia, Turkey and even Australia. sorry for my bad english

Yes, there are a lot of freaks at Eurovision, but this is why they love this competition so much. and in the countries of the former USSR, this competition is wildly popular

I feel the same.. she's so much better than this.. unless she really makes it into a very creative and artistic performance, but I doubt it.. it'll just be entertaining like the halftime and imo that simply isn't good enough for M the ARTIST. I hope she 'll show off her talents and real artistry. I know a lot of fans here love the entertaining and fun M just as much as the more introspective and creative M, but I think it's time for a change (which hopefully the album will also help with)
