A two-song performance by Madonna was the big surprise on Thursday night during a Pride party in New York City.

The evening, which took place at the Meatpacking District’s The Standard hotel, was billed as Boom x Pride with appearances by Kaytranada and deejays Honey DijonMisshapes and Eli Escobar.

Madonna, dressed in Material Girl gloves and “Not My President” leather straps, made her appearance in the Boom Boom Room at about 1:30 a.m., performing “Hung Up” and “I Don’t Search I Find” from the lounge’s bar top.

At the top of the Standard, a heavy gold-plated door separates Le Bain — the Standard’s night club — from the hotel’s exclusive lounge, which Thursday night housed hundreds of New York pride guests awaiting Madonna’s performance. Outside the door, a deep crowd of people fought to make their way into the party, where terms like deep red with “No Fear,” “Courage” and “Resist” were projected around the room; earlier in the evening, she had premiered a video bearing that title a few dozen blocks uptown on Times Square jumbo screens.
