Suddenly, she’s everywhere. Normally shy and retiring (just kidding), Madonna is turning up everywhere you look these days, and her next stop is TV’s highest-rated show — “American Idol.”

The Fox show this Thursday (Feb. 2) will feature a “preview” of Madonna’s new video for her single “Give Me All Your Luvin’” (that last word is pronounced “lovin’,” not “loovin’,” we presume).

Fox made the announcement on Sunday morning. Thursday’s “Idol” — airing from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. (7-8c) will also feature auditions from St. Louis. By the way, this “Luvin’” single is the one that also features Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.

The video on “Idol” is just a prelude, of course, to Madonna’s appearance as the halftime entertainment at next Sunday’s Super Bowl on NBC. In addition, she’s suddenly been granting interviews all over the place — including one in Friday’s Wall Street Journal and, before that, an interview on ABC’s “20/20″ conducted by Cynthia McFadden. And, of course, there was Madonna’s cheeky appearance at the Golden Globes, where she won an award for the song she wrote for the movie she directed, “W.E.” The song is called “Masterpiece.”
