Crazy to imagine, but there was once a time when Madonna could be accurately described as a buzzy pop newcomer "on everyone's lips for the last six months."

At the charity event for Ethiopian famine, Madonna delivered one of the most exuberant live performances of her entire career. Check it out below. Despite the 95-degree Philly summer heat, her "Holiday" shines with effortless energy -- and seriously, those dance moves are the epitome of '80s cool.
