Here we are, Georgia. The most Atlanta moment in Super Bowl halftime show history. The A's Cee-Lo Green, originally of Goodie Mob fame, joined Madonna, Nicki Minaj and LMFAO for the 2012 halftime in Indianapolis. It's important to note it followed a spectacular YellaWood commercial, which really set the tone for success.
Video of the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show, via NBC:
Madonna entered like King Xerxes from 300, performing "Vogue" before LMFAO and a tight rope stuntman (who knew there was such a thing!) joined. "Party Rock" happened, then Nicki Minaj joined for a song nobody knows. M.I.A. appeared at some point.
And then! Marching bands and our hero! And then! "Like a Prayer," featuring everybody in black shower curtains. Everything made less and less sense. Cee-Lo played the role of the gospel singer on the original recording, the one who can totally outsing Madonna.
Everybody agreed it was pretty good, and a member of Goodie Mob has now been involved in a top-five Super Bowl halftime show. How about that!
