Madonna Taps Cee-Lo Green For Super Bowl Surprise

Rucuss staffJanuary 26, 2012

Pop icon Madonna has already enlisted the help of M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj for her Super Bowl halftime performance.

Now, there is word that Cee-Lo Green will join Madge on stage. According to The Insider, The Voice judge has been flying to New York to rehearse with the pop icon. The sources add that he will contribute his signature flair to some of her classic tunes.

But, despite the spoiler, word has it that Green, Minaj, and M.I.A. are only a few surprises that Madonna has in store for the show. When the singer takes the halftime stage next month, her performance will be “imagined” by Cirque du Soleil and Madonna’s longtime choreographer and creative director Jamie King.

According to reports, the set list for the show will include new single “Give Me All Your Luvin” as well as the Madonna classics “Ray of Light,” “Vogue” and “Music.”

“I have eight minutes to set up my stage, 12 minutes to put on the greatest show on earth, and I have seven minutes to take it down so that football field is clean for the second half of the game,” Madonna told ABC News about the halftime show. “That’s the challenge. How do you do that? I actually wanted to have 100 drummers come from the ceiling, a drum line from the ceiling.”

Madonna is the latest star to team up with Green. The ‘Crazy’ singer is also sharing the screen with Whitney Houston in the ‘Sparkle’ movie, which is due in theaters August 10.

The Super Bowl airs live on February 5th.
