    Correct.
    Also Disney (hidden Mickeys) and Pixar are famous for having a bunch of Easter eggs in their movies.
    You find them in lots of software/hardware and games (where the term started)
    In music used to be the 'ghost' track that played after few minutes for the last one. Or pressing back on the first track of the CD to find the hidden track (Kylie did that with 'Password" in "Light Years")
    Referencing is not an easter egg, but it might be a newly tiktok appropriation of a term that is hard to find in a streaming era with not much physical media.
    Mind you is the same place people 'flavour water ' and keep calling it water.

    "Easter eggs" by definition are hidden.
    An "easter egg" is not a tease. It's also not an overt, clear reference to previous work.
    Example: Madonna singing "you've got to just, let your body move to the music" in Deeper & Deeper is not an easter egg. She's clearly referencing Vogue. There's nothing hidden about it.
    An "easter egg" makes the viewer work to discover it. Early special edition DVDs had easter eggs galore hidden in their menus. Often times you would navigate to a section of the menu that didn't seem to be an obvious point and you could view hidden deleted scenes or other extras. A perfect example of a real "easter egg" is the "Memento" DVD. It's a movie famously told backwards. A hidden feature (not listed as a bonus feature on the back cover) allowed you to watch the entire film chronologically rather than backwards.

    I don't think Madonna has ever done what is referred to as "easter eggs." Referencing herself is not really the same thing. My understanding is an easter egg is something that is hidden/not obvious.

    DJ N A reacted to Andreo in Madonna to 'begin filming biopic starring Julia Garner in the next 12 months' after project was shelved during her Celebration Tour   
    Random but this comment from a ATRL user is sending me 

    It begins with Madonna sitting in a team meeting. Her phone lights up -- A text from Guy: "I want to see a marriage counselor".
    She closes her eyes. She sighs. A montage of clips gossiping about her adoption, her marriage struggles, her age...these flash across the screen. She is tired of the controversies and personal life challenges. 
    She opens them and stares at the group of Warner A&R Reps. Silence.
    "Candy Shop. That's the single."
    "....no..." says one of the Reps. "Absolutely not. We're doing the Justin Timberlake song".
    She smiles. She knows what she is doing. She has a plan. A flash of Candy Shop performances from future tours flashes before her eyes.
    "Fine. We'll call the record Hard Candy"
    "But Madonna, it's already called Give It 2 Me, and we have the boxing theme photoshoot already comple--"
    "Hard Candy."
    She is a freedom fighter.
    Title credits roll: Madonna: Still Sticky, Still Sweet -- The Biopic.

    There is audio delay in live performances.
    The live feed you hear in the video was a direct feed from the mixing board with no delay.
    The audience at the concert is hearing an output signal to the speakers - which inherently have a slight delay.
    That's why it looks like they're singing out of sync when you watch the broadcast.

    I'm not arguing about vocals. I don't care.
    I'm answering his question about why the AUDIENCE is seen seemingly singing out of sync with the performance.
    That's all.
    Y'all can argue about polished vocals but leave me out of it.

    Pretty sure I entered this contest back in the day. I remember my remix was really dark and tribal - a sound I was into back then. I used drum elements from this track to create the skeleton of the mix. It sounded okay for an (at the time) amateur remixer. I could take a better stab at it today. I think the only copy I have is boxed up in my attic somewhere.

    • Unless I just didn't see it, I think she missed the lift in Justify My Love in Pittsburgh.
    • Dallas Night 1 - her shoe got caught in the big black robe during Take a Bow and she almost slipped.
    • Not a Madonna blooper but during Night 2 in Dallas, right before she rises up from the floor to start Bedtime Stories a crew member ran over to the stage and wiped the floor down. Not sure if they do that every night or if there was too much sweat that night. When he was hurrying to wipe the floor, he slipped and knocked 3 of the lights at the end of the stage off the stage. A second crew member ran over to pick them up and make sure they were plugged in properly. The fear in their eyes made me giggle.

    Don’t think I saw this anywhere else on the forum, but Purple Disco Machine closed out his Coachella set with this remix of LAP. Sounds amazing to me!

    I wish Stuart had been the DJ at one of my shows in Dallas or Pittsburgh. The female DJ that was at both stops was *horrible* and kept cutting into songs to scream at the audience. Everyone around me at all 3 shows mentioned how cringe she was.

    I don't think it's "bad" just confusing in terms of structure. If there was more of a traditional encore (with a gap and audience cheering) it might work better. But the LAV/Billie Jean bit feels like the start of a new act to the show and the rather short performance of BIM and the very short bit of Celebration just doesn't quite work even though it looks great. I think another minute  of Celebration and more of a visual conclusion to the biographical story of the show would work better. And more of a direct connection with the audience. As Vincent Patterson said in the interview someone posted earlier in the thread, it lacks an "exclamation point" at the end. It's such a great show overall that it feels a bit rough and rushed in comparison.

    No. One of her more recent background singers (sorry can't remember who) mentioned that they recorded background vocals for this tour but weren't traveling or physically on stage with her this time.
