Billboard’s Top 5 Madonna performances on TV
Billboard.com posted their top 5 Madonna performances on TV.

5. “Vogue,” MTV Video Music Awards (1990)
Backed by her Blond Ambition tour dancers, Madonna closed the 1990 “MTV Video Music Awards,” reminding people that the M in MTV stood for Madonna. Decked out in full Marie Antoinette garb, the diva lip-synced her massive Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single before being carried out on a chaise lounge.

4. “Hung Up,” The 48th Annual Grammy Awards (2006)
In her third (and most recent) Grammy Awards performance, Madonna and her holographic double mingled with Gorillaz for a show-stopping opening number. After strutting around with the alternative rock act, the diva burst into her top 10 Hot 100 hit “Hung Up” with her incredibly bendy dancers. Another “Hung Up” performance almost made this list, but was edged out (just barely!) by the Grammy gig. Which? Her incredible TV debut performance of “Hung Up” on the MTV Europe Music Awards.

3. “Like a Virgin,” MTV Video Music Awards (1984)
It was the first “MTV Video Music Awards” and Madonna was riding high as one of the network’s new young darlings. After scoring a pair of top 10 Hot 100 hits in 1984 with “Borderline” and “Lucky Star,” the diva introduced her upcoming single, “Like a Virgin,” to the MTV masses on the VMAs. It’s one of the most iconic VMA performances in history, thanks in part to Madonna’s skin-revealing dance moves (really, she was just rolling around on the floor).

2. “Sooner or Later,” The 63rd Academy Awards (1991)
Perhaps a surprising entry on this list is Madonna’s performance of the Oscar-winning song “Sooner or Later” on the 1991 Academy Awards. The tune is from her 1990 film “Dick Tracy,” which won composer Stephen Sondheim the Oscar for best original song. Often noted by fans as one of her best vocal performances, Madonna was in full-Marilyn Monroe mode here, vamping and va-va-vooming her way through the belty number.

1. “Express Yourself,” MTV Video Music Awards (1989)
Where to begin? The light-up stairs! The bustiers! The running-man! The crotch-grab! With only two backing dancer/singers (longtime cohorts Niki Haris and Donna De Lory), Madonna showed that you didn’t need pyrotechnics and an armada of dancers to heat up a TV stage. (At some point in the performance Madonna gives us our first taste of her vogueing — months before she released her smash single “Vogue.”

Madonna by Michael Griffith
After wowing audiences at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne’s Midsumma, New York’s iconic Don’t Tell Mama and sold out multiple show in Melbourne, IN VOGUE:Songs By Madonna opens in New York on February 5th, 6th, 10th & 15th.

Michael Griffiths IS Madonna. No accent, costume or wig. Just ‘Madge’ accompanying herself at the piano leading you on a journey through her tough life and tender songs.

Strike a pose, get into the groove and express yourself as Madonna opens her heart! Written and directed by Dean Bryant [Prodigal, Liza (on an E), Britney Spears: The Cabaret].
