During her performance, the pop icon battled dancers dressed as minotaurs in some seriously intense choreography - in keeping with the recently-unveiled music video for the track - while wearing an eye-catching red ensemble.
Before hitting the stage, a quote from the star’s #ArtForFreedom short film played out, which said: “I want to start a revolution of love.”
