Madonna's Superbowl Half-Time Show was all the rage on Twitter and Facebook Sunday night.
Opening with her gay dance anthem "Vogue," Madonna covered a number of her hits with help from CeeLo Green and LMFAO, and also performed her latest cheerleder-inspired single, "Give Me All Your Luvin'," with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.
While most people complimented her performance and physicality, others had a field day with the 53-year-old's gold-and-black haute couture outfits (designed by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci), a small slip during the song "Music," her alleged plastic surgery, and the level of lip synch involved. Madonna's nemesis, Piers Morgan, especially did not miss the opportunity to criticize her on the latter. Either way you felt about the show, as Michelangelo Signorile said, "Once again, she dwarfed the event!"
A few thoughts from some famous Tweeters:
Ok Madge, you win. I even liked the Margaret Hamilton exit.
Oh, Madge! Come back! Come back!
That hurt MY balls!! ... Get to the part where she kisses Britney!
Bret Easton Ellis:
Weird feeling about Madonna. The songs are great but she needed Nicki, MIA, Cee Lo and LMFAO to back her up? Didn't happen with Springsteen.
That halftime show made the whole superbowl thingy worth it!!!
Wait, which jersey number is Madonna? ... The author of "Sex" and director of "W.E.", ladies and gentlemen! What a show! Amazing!
Just saw half time. Common, visually OMG! And there is only one Madonna! Xx Cyn

Donna Brazile to HuffingtonPost:
Leave the Diva alone. Seriously? RT @HuffingtonPost WATCH:Madonna slips, stuns in #SuperBowl halftime performance
Madonna I love u!!!! ... Madonna KLLED it!
Loved Madonna's halftime show, even the plug for Who's Still Standing at the end.
Madonna, nice message at the end of your half time show, but you spelled PIECE wrong!
After near 20 years in the US, I saw my first Super Bowl - just the halftime show (easing in) - and have been playing Madonnas since. Damn!
Kristie Clements (Vogue Editor):
All these male commentators talking about how old Madonna is. She was awesome. Nobody says anything about Bono. Or Sting. And they're not. ... And by the way Madonna thank you for the Vogue plug!
ATTENTION: All gay men can now turn off the game and return to their glory holes. Madonna is done singing.
It's either I loved Madonna/ I hated Madonna every other tweet in my stream. Just like when Madonna does anything.
#Madonna I worship you. Always have always will.
Neil Patrick Harris:
I really dug the halftime show. Not sure how it looked on TV, but all the production and projections combined with Madonna rocking? Loved.
Madonna had the best Half-time performance of all time !! Everyone on that stage killed it!
Piers Morgan to Perez Hilton and Sharon Osbourne:
