Having made her entrance clad head-to-toe in a shimmering gold cloak, riding a gilded chariot drawn by legions of gladiators, the 53-year-old launched into a 12-minute spectacular featuring a string of her greatest hits including "Vogue", "Music" and "Express Yourself", as well as her new single, "Gimme All Your Luvin".
