The show had a number of drag queens, however, what has actually set the stage on fire was a smooch shared between Madonna and Dominican rapper Tokischa.
63-year-old Madonna, who was wearing a lace basque and hotpants was joined by the 26-year-old rapper Tokischa for an outstanding performance of her hit song “Hung Up”. The duo shared a rather intense passionate kiss towards the end before she gave a slight rap on Tokischa’s bum as she walked off the stage.
