Grammys 2015: Madonna Performs 'Living For Love' And Battles Minotaurs Dressed As A Matador (Another Day In The Life, Eh?) (PICS)

Madonna took to the stage at the Grammys on Sunday night, for her first awards show performance in almost a decade.

MORE GRAMMYS:

She sang her new single ‘Living For Love’, which acts as the lead single from her forthcoming 13th studio album, ‘Rebel Heart’, with a matador-themed performance, in keeping with the track’s accompanying music video.

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.”

She had already caused a stir on the red carpet on her way into the awards bash, in an outfit that gave photographers a cheeky flash of her bum.

Madonna was introduced to the stage by two contemporary stars who she’s collaborated with in the past two years, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus..

After being described as a “bad-ass, trouble-making international star” by Miley, Nicki told the audience: “This next powerful woman is always on top. How does she do it? She does it all by living for love.”

Other performers on the night included Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Katy Perry.

It’s thought that Madonna will be singing ‘Living For Love’ once again for British audiences later this month, when she takes to the stage at the Brit Awards.
