Fall aside, LFL was a brilliant performance.

Living For Love would have been a huge moment for her commercially if it wasn't for the fall. Fall aside, it was spectacular, but the fall took ALL the attention from the performance.

L4L was a terrible choice for lead single, and so whatever she did at the BRITS, it was never going to have a massive impact on sales - the song is shite - however at least the fall got her some attention... SHOULDA been Ghosttown.

I've always suspected it may have missed the top 40 had it not been for the publicity that brought.

I thought at the time LFL was the best single to lead the album. Radio ignored the track otherwise it would have been a smash. The performance and vocals were so good here , much better than BS.

'Living for Love', hands down, for me.

The fact I've never been totally on board with 'Bedtime Story' probably plays a big part but, like Bal said, I don't think the new, upbeat production for this performance really works. I could see what they're were trying to do, making a slightly experimental song seem appealing on such a commercial platform, but it just does the opposite of what it intends and the song just falls flat. If anything, they should have made it even more dark and slow. She certainly looks the part and I've got to say the crowd is so much more enthusiastic (although that's more to do with the BRITs itself and the way it's become so much more staged and unnatural and unentaining).

'Living for Love' is set up to be so important. It was hyped all the way through the night and the introduction is just so grand. That perhaps makes the fall even more shocking, because you were on such a high before crashing to a low. I was in shock for the rest of the performance and I imagine a lot of other people will have been too, with the rest busy laughing and rewinding and whatnot, so it felt like no-one was completely focused on the performance itself. I seem to recall it taking forever to finish - as soon as you thought it had, an extended instrumental appeared - and I wanted it to end because you could see how pissed off Madonna was. After it had finished though, I had to commend her courage and determination to see the performance through to the end and I believe that did her a lot of favours. Despite understandably being a bit off, I thought the rest of the performance was good - it had a bit of a plot and stage presence which the other performers didn't really have. The Grammys tops it though as I just love the way she got the crowd clapping along in that.
