Madonna gets into the groove at Rio Carnival


Madonna has joined revellers at the Rio Carnival, along with her daughter Lourdes and Brazilian model Jesus Luz.

She also took along her adopted daughter "Mercy" James, after a high profile custody battle in Malawi's courts last year.

As a guest of Rio's Governor, Sergio Cabral, the pop star had a bird's eye view as hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of Brazilian city Rio de Janeiro, for the start of the annual parade.
