Two days ago the world finally got a chance to see Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. prance around in cheerleader outfits for their appearance in Madonna’s “Give Me All Your Luvin” video, and on Sunday night (February 5), the two rappers joined the Material Girl during her live performance at the Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show. Madonna kicked things off with her 1990 classic “Vogue” before Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. showed up to perform the new single. Minaj was done up in a white wig, and a sexy red and black outfit, as she an M.I.A. both performed their verses raised up on separate platforms. After the performance, fans took to Twitter to weigh in, with more than a few wondering why Nicki and Madonna decided not to share another kiss during the halftime show.

Check out a few reactions to Nicki Minaj’s Halftime performance:

@brandonwrites: What Madonna should done to make the halftime show better was make out with Nicki Minaj and MIA. Now that would have been a show!

@swaggkingYM: nicki minaj is the black lady gaga!

@BirthOfAPrince: if madonna would have kissed nicki minaj they would have been special

@NickOhLee: I though Madonna and Nicki Minaj were supposed to kiss during halftime ?

@kionsanders:Nicki Minaj has a habit of stealing shows so I can’t blame Madonna for only giving her a few seconds on stage.
