What Time Does the Madonna 2012 Super Bowl Halftime Show Start?
Wondering what time Madonna might hit the stage for the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show? We've got a pretty good idea:
With kickoff for the gridiron game between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots set for 6:30PM ET, and each quarter running 15 minutes and accounting for stoppages of play, penalties and of course those notorious commercials, you can pretty much expect Madonna to take the stage for the halftime show at approximately 8 or 8:15PM ET. So make sure you grab your snacks, your frosty beverages and plop on the couch around that time so you don't miss a thing.
Madge revealed on Jay Leno's 'Tonight Show' that she has a 12-minute set, along with an eight minute set up and a seven minute strike.
The Material Girl also joked about the pressure of performing at what is considered a sacred event to most Americans, saying, "And I have to go on in the middle of that holy of holies and put on the greatest show that was ever put on before, right? So, that’s no pressure… And here’s the crazy part — I have eight minutes to set up the stage and seven to take it down. I’m not sure why I got cheated on the other side."
It's live TV, Madge! The fans are rooting so hard that they practically burst blood vessels in their necks and there are lots of high rollers who have bets placed on everything from who wins the coin toss to the score to how many yards Tom Brady will throw for to how many times Eli Manning will get sacked, so they want to get to what's really important and that's who will win! Time is money at the Super Bowl, but we're still looking forward to seeing you do your thang.
