Football fans either loved or hated Madonna's halftime show during Super Bowl XLVI. The Queen of Pop took the field mid-game and performed a variety of songs from her career, including "Vogue," "Like a Prayer" and her newest song with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. "Give Me All Your Lovin'."

The overall celebrity consensus? They loved it - save for one outspoken Brit.

Brad Goreski

"It's a Brad, Brad World" star Brad Goreski weighed in on how he thought Madonna was preparing for her show.

"I'm imagining Madonna backstage with a lozenge in her mouth in a prayer circle with her dancers asking for God guide her performance #chills," he tweeted.

Josh Groban

Singer Josh Groban was more curious about the singer's pre-show routine than the actual show.

"Just think, RIGHT this minute, Madonna is somewhere in the stadium stretching and saying "lips, teeth, tip of the tongue" to herself," he tweeted, adding his hope for one of the performance songs.

"I'm personally hoping she'll sing Sooner Or Later from Dick Tracy but I'm not holding my breath. #superbowlssondheim."

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osborne revealed some TMI about her excitement over the Madonna performance.

"I'm so excited for Madonna right now I'm about to pee my pants! M show the world how it's done! #superbowl," she tweeted. Afterward, she added to her thoughts.

"Nothing I have watching musically has made my heart pump with so much joy then Madonna's performance #thesuperbowl f**king amazing!"

Piers Morgan

CNN host Piers Morgan has made no secret of his Madonna hate. The acerbic Brit let her have it in a series of pre- and post-show tweets.

"I don't think the half-time entertainer should ever be older than the #Superbowl itself. Sorry," he wrote, adding, "First time I've wanted a #Superbowl half-time performance NOT to suffer a wardrobe malfunction."

He wasn't impressed with the show… at all.

"Yuk. Just put it away Madonna. Seriously. #Superbowl"

"Omg loving old school Madonna!"

"Congrats to Madonna for great spot, especially considering game has resumed during last three minutes."

"Glad Madonna Found M.I.A. I've really missed her. L-U-V YOU WANNA?" she tweeted.
