Call it a hunch ... but Madonna's gonna perform Vogue this Sunday at the Super Bowl Halftime Show -- this according to several behind-the-scenes pics of the stage, obtained by TMZ.
The pics were snapped over the weekend in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis -- while crew were testing stage lighting for the upcoming performance ... and you can clearly see the word "Vogue" lit up on the floor panels.
Nicki Minaj is rumored to be a part of the show as well .... probably because she's featured on Madonna's new song, which Madge is expected to premiere at the Super Bowl.
Let's hope she knows how to let her body move to the music.
Football Faux Pas
'Idol' Hopeful Angie Zeiderman
I'm No Gaga Ripoff!
1/29/2012 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"American Idol" wannabe Angie Zeiderman loves Lady Gaga (as she proclaimed during her audition) but she's not trying to be like her ... she's just being herself.
Zeiderman tells TMZ she's theatrical by nature, and took it as a great compliment when Jennifer Lopez said most contestants couldn't sing a show tune like she did. Angie says she performs every Thursday night at a gay bar in Delray Beach, FL (the only girl who does so) and performs as part of a burlesque troupe that performs all over Miami.
If the "Idol" thing doesn't pan out, she should have no problem getting a gig ... as a Lady Gaga impersonator.

Instead of a golden ticket to Hollywood ... "American Idol" contestant Alanna Snare got a one-way ticket back to her life of fried bulls' balls -- and it looks like she's thrilled.
Alanna was rejected on last night's episode, but used her 'AI' platform to educate America about the delicacy known as Rocky Mountain Oysters ... aka bull testicles.
We got pics of Alanna back in action as a waitress at Bruce's in Severance, CO ... where the house specialty is testes from all sorts of animals.

Miley Cyrus celebrated her boyfriend Liam's birthday last weekend by licking a birthday cake that would make most men feel ... just plain inadequate.
The massive phallic confection was rolled out Saturday night at Club Icon in Downtown L.A. -- and 19-year-old Miley quickly jumped at the photo op ... posing alongside the ... well, just click to see for yourself.

Calls to Miley's reps were not returned.
Buys SICKEST Mansion Ever!!!
1/24/2012 12:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Aniston is about to become the proud owner of an estate you will never be able to afford ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tells us ... Jennifer has purchased an 8,500 square foot mansion in Bel Air. The asking price was $24 million, but we're told Jennifer got it for a bargain -- only $21 mil.
The Mid Century house has 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and unobstructed city and ocean views. The estate is just shy of 2 acres ... and in Bel Air, that's HUGE. And get this ... it even has a vineyard!
Jennifer's realtor is Jade Mills from Coldwell Banker in Bev Hills. Mills is having a good month. She repped Avril Lavigne, who sold her $8.5 million mansion to L.A. Clippers star Chris Paul last week.
We're told Jennifer will officially get the title to her new pad tomorrow.
