Madonna Debuts Persona ‘Madame X’ Onstage, Does the Cha Cha Cha at Billboard Music Awards

Madonna showed off some impressive dancing skills clad in heels when she took the stage in Las Vegas at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

The entertainer performed in a dress that featured sequins, polka dot trim and lace. Her accessories complemented the look, like fishnets, garters and a pair of black pointy pumps with straps on a sturdy heel. Finishing off her outfit was a black eyepatch that featured an “X” in red sequins — a reference to her new onstage character Madame X.

Joining her on stage to perform her new song “Medellín” was reggaeton singer Maluma, who danced the cha cha cha with her and planted a kiss. Yesterday, she teased the performance on Twitter  — asking fans to show her their own version of the moves.

Unfortunately, Madonna skipped the red carpet, but Maluma enjoyed showing off his outfit with many of the other entertainers at the award show. The Colombian musician had on a colorful jacket and matching trousers with lace-up boots.
