Both singers opted for sexy black outfits when they preformed at the halftime show — but which look did you like better? VOTE!

On Feb.3 Beyonce Knowles, 31, kicked off the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII halftime show in style! It was the most anticipated performance yet. Queen Bey put her fantastic figure on full display when she stripped down on stage, singing and dancing the whole time!

She wore a plunging leather corset and skirt which was later stripped off to reveal a lace bodysuit designed by Rubin Singer. He actually created a number of ensembles for her over the years. Rubin said that it took weeks of preparation with 14 workers and 200 man hours. He revealed that Beyonce’s stunning outfit was based on his Autumn 2013 collection entitled Valkyrie’s Dominion. The inspirations behind the collection is a reference to Norse mythology’s dominant female warriors. While we thought Beyonce looked show-stopping, she wasn’t the only singer to wow the crowd on stage for the halftime show!

Madonna’s Super Bowl Outfit: 2012 Halftime Show

Great minds think alike, indeed, as Madonna, 54, also chose an outfit that resembled ancient mythology from the Egyptians and Romans. She certainly had the warrior look going with gold, hand-embroidered full-length gowns with headdress and a cape that was hand-embroidered with gold metal, studs, crystals, and lined in leopard-print chiffon. The Queen of Pop was portraying an Egyptian goddess with a dash of Versace-inspired Greece in this Givenchy Haute Couture creation by Riccardo Tisci. Madonna is known for reinventing herself so it wasn’t a surprise when she decided to reinvent herself once again just in time for the Super Bowl XLVI on Feb.2.2012.

Beyonce Vs. Madonna Super Bowl Outfit: Whose Was Hotter?

Both Madonna and Beyonce were inspired by the powerful mythologies that the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians portrayed and decided to embody that with their alter egos and personas — but who do you think pulled off their sexy Super Bowl halftime outfit better?

Beyonce is cool and everything but its disrespectful to call her the Queen when she is not even the 2nd , 4rd, or 5th place behind Madonna. This is like saying Elvis is not the king of Rock and roll, or that M Jackson who I am not into but he is the king of pop like Madonna because he earned it.

who is all? almost 90% of people polled say Madonna, Beyonce had months to rehearse Madonna had 2 weeks and still pulled off the highest rated event in world history, she out rated the game itself and is in Genesis book of world records for doing it. Beyonce
s half time was the 1st time in 5 years ratings declined.

Madonna is the ultimate pop icon – show woman globally. Her creativity cannot be matched. Beyonce is ok but she is no Madonna. When it comes to epic, Madonna is the only one who can put it together

Madonna’s outfit looked hot, dark and heavy on someone trying to recapture their youth with Pom poms. Beyonce looked sexy without showing to much skin and her performance was great, she danced and moved and she owned the night., what did Madonna do- walk around the stage looking hot and out of balanced.

Well, it is quite a success for Beyonce as she managed to get viewings not too far from Madonna’s record. It’s also an achievement for anybody to be compared to the Queen of Pop. There are two points though: one, Madonna always sets the example for others to follow (same here), two, Madonna’s show was more innovative and spectacular: Beyonce’s choreography was a bit… samey. Still well done.

Madonna had 112.5 in the USA, Beyonce 104 so Madonna had 8.5 million more with very little advertisement and only 2 weeks to get it practiced and staged, Beyonce had months and a ton of publicity and a huge Pepsi deal backing it up. Global viewership of the Madonna half time broke all records and goes in the world history books as the most watched even in US and World history, Madonna is the only artist who out rated the game itself. It would have been cool to see what the ratings would have been if they pushed her as much as they did Beyonce.

Madonna n°1 in tutto…io vorrei vedere un uomo x la prossima edizione…tipo Elton John che ha criticato cosi tanto la sola ed unica regina del pop Madonna…vorrei vedere lui cosa farebbe e quanti spettatori riuscirebbe a totalizzare…
