Madonna makes surprise appearance at Ultra Music Festival
Madonna surprised revellers at the Ultra Music Festival last night by appearing on stage to introduce in-demand producer Avicii.
The 53-year-old, who releases new album ‘MDNA’ tomorrow, was first seen on a giant video screen talking about the power of live music before heading to the front of stage in person to announce the arrival of the headlining Swedish DJ.
In front of a starstruck crowd, she made it clear how delighted she was to attend the Miami event: "Hello, everybody, I've finally made it to Ultra Music Festival. I've been here in spirit for many years, but it's good to be here, finally.
“In my world, music and dance are not separate. Electronic music has been a part of my career since I started, and I can honestly say, 'A DJ saved my life.’”
After making a cheeky reference to the drug which inspired her new album’s title, she then shouted: “Are you ready to dance? Are you ready to sweat? Are you ready to make some noise, mother----ers?! This next DJ is amazing! Get ready for Avicii!," before entering the DJ booth with the ‘Levels’ star to dance along to her latest single, ‘Girl Gone Wild.’
