The songstress asked during her Saturday night performance: "Who's registered to vote?"
Adding: "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama."
Even as she began to draw boos the 54-year-old continued her political tout saying: "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."
Yet The Material Girl isn’t the only popstar to be plugging the US President for re-election.
High power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z held a fundraising dinner in Obama’s honour back in September whilst Katy Perry also took to the stage in support last week, holding a free concert at a rally for Obama.

Drawing 10,000 fans to a park in downtown Las Vegas, Perry’s vote was crystal clear as she wore a tight-white mini featuring a coloured in vote box with ‘Mr Obama’ written beside it.
Perry, who recently also played a free concert at an Obama event in Los Angeles, paused before the last song to encourage people in the Las Vegas crowd to vote early.
"Don't wait. Go tomorrow,"
"How many of you are 18 here? It's going to be your first time, right?" the starlet said.
