Only a few people on this planet have the pristine honor of being called by a first name only. Beyoncé, Cher, Adele, and of course, the one and only Madonna. To list Madonna’s accomplishments on the charts or to try and pin down which performance is her most iconic would be a futile waste of time and energy. Madonna has been and will forever be the Queen of Pop. And our benevolent sovereign has graced us with her kindness once again by announcing that her Rebel Heart Tour will be shown on Showtime. And we cannot wait to watch it.
If you are like most people on this planet, you are not made of money. This means that your chances of catching a Madonna concert in person, let alone in decent seats, are quite slim. Your best bet at catching the Queen’s performance would be to check out her moves online.
There are a few reasons to watch this show, which airs on Friday, December 9th at 9pm/8pmc. First and foremost — it’s Madonna. She is always able to bring a level of ingenuity and fun to her performances. She is also constantly seeking cool and innovative performers to join her onstage — just watch the clip above, where she incorporates the dynamic duo Aya Sato into her performance. They have broken YouTube with their goth style and modern movements.
Madonna was also the one to discover and push the Russian group Kazaky into the limelight. They appeared in her music video for “Girl Gone Wild.”
The Showtime special will feature footage of Madonna’s tour from all around the world. She will be singing many of her old hits as well as a lot of her newer material. You will also see some celebrity cameos pop up on stage! So be ready to catch a glimpse of Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Jessica Chastain, and Gwendoline Christie. Not too shabby! You go Madge.
