Celebrating Canada's 2SLGBTQI+ Communities

Here’s Every Guest Judge Who Joined Madonna On Stage For The ‘Vogue’ Ballroom Section Of The Celebration Tour [UPDATED]

Here’s every celebrity to join Madonna on stage to help judge the vogueing ballroom portion of the show, where the gay icon’s dancers show off some of their best moves…

By Christopher Turner

Madonna has been churning out hit albums ever since her self-titled debut from 1983 hit the shelves. Commemorating four decades of the superstar’s biggest hits, Madonna kicked off her long-awaited Celebration Tour at London’s O2 Arena on October 14, the start of her 2023-2024 run of concert dates (including rescheduled dates) that will see her performing 78 shows in over 35 cities across Europe and North America. Currently the tour is set to end in April 2024, in Mexico City.

Initially set to begin in July 2023, Madonna had to postpone the Celebration Tour in June after being hospitalized due to a bacterial infection. “My first thought when I woke up in the hospital was my children,” Madonna shared in a statement online in July. “My second thought was that I did not want to disappoint anyone who bought tickets for my tour. I also didn’t want to let down the people who worked tirelessly with me over the last few months to create my show. I hate to disappoint anyone.”

The show definitely hasn’t disappointed and one of the most iconic sections of the concert is when some of your fave celebs join Madonna on stage to help judge the ballroom portion of the show, where the gay icon’s dancers (and Madonna’s daughter Estere) show off some of their best moves. Read on to see every single celebrity guest judge who joined Madonna on stage… so far.

    Can you please put most recent at top so you don’t have to scroll down each time through every show?

    R.L. / 22 February 2024

    Re: Mary Dixon 19 Feb.: Per Wikipedia, Sapphira is O’Neill Nichol Haynes from Texas, currently based in Philandelphia.

    Mary M Dixon / 19 February 2024

    Can someone verify if my IDing of Angel Tyler (from the Detroit show, per my Youtube video’s notes, quoted above on Teddy’s comment) is actually (also) Sapphira Cristál, from Rupaul’s Drag Race? Some commenters made notes of that on the video. She had Angel as her guest on the Rebel Heart Tour. Thanks, fellow original Iconers (I am as original as they get, with longtime Ann Arbor connections with M).

    Teddy / 06 February 2024

    Pittsburgh guest judge is Lola LaCroix

    stephmdna / 03 February 2024

    Stuart Price is labelled on correct date but wrong city (should be Antwerp instead of Copenhagen.)

    Teddy / 22 January 2024

    Special guest for Detroit was Angel Tyler, production specialist of the Empowerment Plan (one of the Detroit charities Madonna helps- the others are the Downtown Youth Boxing Gym and the Detroit Achievement Academy)—- a local group that seeks to break the cycle of homelessness by hiring homeless parents from shelters as full-time seamstresses to make coats and sleeping bags for homeless people living on the street. She had also previously been the guest during Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour stop in Detroit during the “Unapologetic Bitch” segment.

    R.L. / 19 January 2024

    No update on the judge from Detroit show? Absolutely no one seems to know who she is.
