The controversial image appeared during Madonna’s performance of the song “Nobody Knows Me”. A video projected on to the giant screen erected on the stage showed quickly alternating images of political and religious figures, including Chinese leader Hu Jinatao, US politician Sarah Palin and Pope Benedict XVI.
