The 59-year-old singer appeared in the Great Hall at the Metropolitan Museum of Art walking down some steps flanked by monks.
In a clip taken and edited by Vogue the crowd can be heard cheering as the pop icon begins to belt out Like a Prayer.

This time last year Selena Gomez was escorted to the Met Gala by boyfriend The Weeknd who she started dating shortly after his split from Bella Hadid.
But as the songstress bumped into Bella’s sister Gigi at this year’s bash there was no sign of awkwardness as the duo were spotted hugging.
The ladies are both recently single after Selena’s rekindled romance with Justin Bieber ended and Gigi split from boyfriend Zayn Malik.
