Eleven global dance competition finalists brought out their best dance moves Saturday night at Roseland Ballroom in NYC, each vying for a coveted spot on Madonna's dance crew. The Queen of Pop made a regal entrance from beneath the stage in a black bustier, white blouse and knee-high lace up boots, causing the crowd to go absolutely wild.
Madonna made her way to a large white couch where she laid next to choreographers Rich and Tone, sipping champagne while taking in the performances. In the end, Lil Buck from Tennessee was crowned the winner by Madonna and quickly joined her and her posse in the VIP area to celebrate.
As the crowd of over 1600 cleared Roseland Ballroom, Madonna made her way to the DJ booth to dance with her producer and hand-picked DJ Martin Solveig. Those who stuck around were lucky enough to join in the dance party with the Material Girl herself, jamming to songs like Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind and Madonna's own song, Hung Up. Also spotted getting into the groove? Madonna's boyfriend Brahim Zaibat and daughter Lourdes.
The competition was part of Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project, a celebration of global nightlife with events that took place in 50 countries all on one night.
