As the Giants and Patriots headed to the locker room at halftime in a one-point game, the two teams cleared the field for Academy Award winning singer Madonna to take the stage for the Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance.
Under dimmed lights at Lucas Oil Stadium, Madonna and a group of dancers dazzled the crowd during halftime.
Madonna wasn’t alone in the act as throughout the show other musical artists including Cee Lo Green, LMFAO, M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj took their turn singing with the 53-year old native of Michigan.
Support staff worked frantically to set up the stage and surroundings for Madonna’s performance.
The 31-minute halftime is more than double the time of a normal halftime during the regular season of 12 minutes.
The final song Madonna performed before the crowd was ‘Like a Prayer’ with the words ‘World Peace’ spelled out at the conclusion of the song.

With Super Bowl week nearing an end, the last few parties before the main event took place Sunday afternoon at the Indiana Convention Center.
NBC Sports hosted a party for various advertising clines and other friends of the company in the SagamoreBallroom.
Live music accompanied those attending the party, which was held in the largest ballroom in the state of Indiana.
Along with all the food and drinks one could imagine, guests also could entertain themselves by playing foosball, ping-pong and pop-a-shot basketball in the lobby area.
The largest gathering place in the Convention Center on Sunday was the Super Bowl XLVI Tailgate 2012 party.
A handful of exhibit halls were decorated for thousands of fans with tailgate passes and game tickets.
The party included chances to have your picture taken with the Lombardi Trophy, observe past Super Bowl rings and mimic walking across the stage at a mock NFL Draft.
Fans were decked out in their Giants and Patriots gear and toured the different rooms while getting a taste of some NFL history in the exhibits.
Once again live music was a big hit at the party as The Fray performed in front of the crowd.
The Indiana Convention Center also housed the Game Day Fan Plaza that was open to ticket holders and was held in the tented area that was previously for the NFL Experience during the week.
