Madonna stopped by The Jonathan Ross Show last night (March 15) to perform her lead singles off Rebel Heart. The veteran pop star was calm throughout, whether flanked by shirtless men wearing bull horns (“Living for Love”) or standing alone for a torch ballad (“Ghosttown”). So, while her set could have easily been more dramatic, Madonna relied more on her natural charisma instead.
The entertainer has made several TV appearances like her Jonathan Ross set since she officially dropped Rebel Heart on March 6. Despite the mass leak of demos a month prior to its release, her efforts to promote the album have paid off somewhat: Billboard predicts that Rebel Heart will nab a top three spot in last week’s Hot 100, though FOX’s Empire soundtrack may take the No. 1 spot.
