Madonna promises greatest show on earth

Madonna has revealed her ambition to put on the 'greatest show on earth' following reports of her brutal rehearsals.

The 53-year-old is performing the coveted half-time show at Sunday's Super Bowl, and is determined to make it special.

Even though Madge is one of the most famous performers on the planet, though, she still gets nervous.

'Oh my God, I'm so nervous, you have no idea,' Madonna told Anderson Cooper during an appearance on his daytime talk show.

'I mean the Super Bowl is kind of like the holy of holies in America right? ... I have to put on the greatest show on earth, in the middle of the greatest show on earth.

'I have eight minutes to set it up and seven minutes to take it down and 12 minutes to put on the greatest show on earth,' she explained.' That's a lot of pressure.'

Madonna will be joined onstage by Nicki Minaj and MIA for a performance of her new song Give Me All Your Luvin.
