After a lengthy hiatus from the music world, Madonna has officially made her comeback in a big way - as the Queen of Pop took center stage at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis for an energetically captivating Super Bowl XLVI halftime show performance on Sunday night (February 5).

The Material Girl treated the millions watching around the globe to a string of four songs, as she was dressed as Cleopatra upon entrance while performing "Vogue" followed by "Music".

Then joined by LMFAO for snippets of their songs including "Sexy and I Know It," the twelve minute mini-concert next welcomed Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. for the performance of Madonna's new single "Give Me All Your Luvin'" before the closing out with a Cee Lo Green accompanied version of "Like a Prayer".

The cheerleader themed theatrics included a swarm of drummers while the production was assisted by Cirque du Soleil and Madonna's longtime choreographer and creative director Jamie King.

The 53-year-old music legend was quite confident prior to taking the stage, as she told Anderson Cooper in a recent interview, "I have to put on the greatest show on earth, in the middle of the greatest show on earth. I have eight minutes to set it up and seven minutes to take it down and 12 minutes to put on the greatest show on earth. That's a lot of pressure."

Madonna's Super Bowl appearance comes as she's readying for the release of her twelfth studio album - which comes four years after her most recent effort - as MDNA is set to hit store shelves and iTunes on March 26th.
