Fan Report: 'I've been waiting my entire life to do this. Trust me. I will dance.'

madonnalicious reader Stefan was the fan that got picked to dance with Madonna onstage at the Philadelphia Rebel Heart Tour show and this is his story of the night!

Last night in my hometown of Philadelphia, a lifelong dream of mine came true: I danced with Madonna onstage.

I'm still overwhelmed with joy and love and emotion, but here is an account of how my dream became a reality.

In the second to last song of Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour, 'Unapologetic Bitch,' a randomly selected fan is brought up onstage to dance with the Queen. I had heard that the fan is picked before the show begins, so by the time me and my BFF Jennifer had taken our seats and the show started, I assumed some lucky fan had already been selected. So I did what I always do at a Madonna: got ready to sing/dance/cheer for the next two hours.

And I did, because the show is amazing since 1) Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour is one of her great tours - setlist-wise and spectacle-wise and 2) Jennifer and I were in the 4th row. There is nothing better than being close-up during a Madonna show.

It was during the end of the fourth-to-last song (Material Girl) that I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and there was a woman with a headset and walkie-talkie and a crew shirt and she said 'Would you come with me?'

I don't know how, but I INSTANTLY knew I had been picked to go onstage. I tapped Jennifer and said 'I have to go. I'm going onstage!' Jennifer looked at me like I had two heads, but I didn't have time to explain.

Along the side of the arena the crew woman asked me if I would like go up onstage and dance with Madonna. I couldn't have said yes faster.

She walked me towards the back of the floor section where a co-worker was waiting. The two of them basically drilled me, asking if I was DEFINITELY going to dance and how I HAVE to dance really hard and Madonna is happier when the person dances a lot and how the girl at the last show didn't do anything and how I MUST dance my ass off. I looked at her point-blank and said 'I've been waiting my entire life to do this. Trust me. I will dance.'
