You won’t get much of an argument from anyone about “Ghosttown” being one of the shining highlights on Madonna’s latest album, Rebel Heart. Madge wisely chose to perform the ballad, now her second single from the album, at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 29) night, with the added bonus of Taylor Swift providing acoustic guitar accompaniment.
Taylor even looked a bit like she was paying homage to Madonna by wearing black stockings and garters beneath a black dress. And of course you couldn’t help noticing the size difference between the pair when they both got off their feet toward the end of the song.
One of the best things about “Ghosttown” is that, even on the album, it comes sans Auto-tune, and so it lends itself to live performances much better than, say, something like “Living For Love,” And we’d say Madge and Taylor nailed this one.
