With a giant “X” representing her forthcoming Madame X on display, Madonna appeared laying on the stage, flanked by greenery scenes behind her. Soon, she wasn’t the only Madonna on the stage, as various incarnations of her hologram self pranced and cha-cha’d around to the grooving tune. The performance included a lot of intriguing CGI to enhance the ever-evolving setting, which included rain and bursting blasts of color.
Madonna — whom host Kelly Clarkson introduced as “the legend herself” — perfectly executed the choreography with Maluma and several dancers. They performed across various stage setups and through the audience, their moves punctuated by fireworks.
Last month, Madonna teamed with Colombian pop darling Maluma for new song “Medellín” and released its accompanying video. The track is slated to appear on Madonna’s forthcoming album, Madame X, out June 14th. Maluma will also appear on another Madame X song, “Bitch I’m Loca.”
