"Ha. i love madonna doing 'vogue' during the super bowl...," Moby tweeted. "Do you think the producers know the origins of vogueing? Awesome." The musician also added "i don't remember the rest of madonna's ½ time show, but 'vogue' was great. bringing nyc homoeroticism into living rooms everywhere."
"Madonna had the best Half-time performance of all time!!" Diddy said but, alas, without beginning with "imma let you finish."
"Wow. Great game. Madonna just took love performance to the NEXT level!!" Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst tweeted following the 12-minute set, a point reiterated by Pink: "She does less, and yet she's so much more...#Madonna."
"It takes Super Bowls to put on a show like this! L.U.V. MADONNA," said 'Hello' producer Martin Solveig, who also produced the new Madonna song she performed 'Gimme All Your Luvin'.'
But many other musicians didn't exactly see the same level of artistry on the Super Bowl stage.
"Madonna Half-Time = The Karaoke scene in Sexy and The City Part 2, Temple Of Doom," Ryan Adams tweeted, later adding that "King Diamond would have been a perfect guest for Like A Prayer -- based on outfits alone."
Eurythmics' Dave Stewart described the show as "the sound of too much money blaring into the ears and eyes of the disenfranchised then the words world peace, I'm lost."
"Well, I know why Madonna was nervous about the halftime show ;)," Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines quipped, likely referencing M.I.A.'s middle-finger salute during the set.
Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne said he could confirm what many were thinking: "Just got confirmation from reliable techs involved with Super Bowl that it was all lip-sync!!!" He later added, "LOVE you MadonnaPower to you sister!! Power to MIABut you all should demand that the Grammy's forgive Milly Vanilly!!"
Meanwhile, Jane Addiction's guitarist Dave Navarro had a different take on the halftime show. "See those flashing lights in the stands during half time?" he asked. "Yup, one of em was me. That's right. 'Worked' with Madonna today!"
Finally, Neko Case decided to give the twitterverse some perspective. "People, while you rant about how afraid of Madonna you are, you are losing valuable time to start a band or turn off the TV for crissakes!" she said, adding that she wasn't watching and didn't know who won -- which earned her some tweet flak.
"Ok! Jeeze! You football fans are sensitive!" she tweeted is response. "I didn't take it so hard when the Canucks lost. You need a bowl of warm soup and bath salts!"
