On Thursday (February 2) night, Madonna will world-premiere a teaser for her highly anticipated new video on “American Idol.” The preview of “Give Me All Your Luvin’ “ comes in advance of the clip’s official Friday-morning debut.
But if you think that the “Idol” judges are getting any special treatment and are seeing it first, think again.
“I have not seen it yet,” Jennifer Lopez told MTV News earlier this week. “I’ll see it with all you guys on Thursday.” When asked whether she’d even heard any of the finished track, she further dished that she hasn’t heard a thing — and that includes a leaked version of the song that hit the Internet last fall.
“I hate when the demos leak,” J. Lo added. “It’s so unfair.”
Now that Madonna is in the “Idol” family, is there any chance she might come on the show to mentor the contestants before her album, MDNA, drops in March? “I don’t know. I mean, that would be awesome,” Lopez said. “And if it was me, she would be the one person I’d probably want to come and mentor me if I was a contestant on ‘Idol.’ ”
With so much mystery surrounding the track and the video, which also feature Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., MTV News got some exclusive insight into the vibe of the clip from its directors, Megaforce.
“We said, ‘Wow, it’s quite interesting that it’s a mix between these three artists.’ They are not a part of the same universe for us,” Raphael Rodriguez said of the Martin Solveig-produced track. “So it was interesting to hear this mix and different kind of music.” He later described the video as “about happiness and something really sunny.”
