The `Hung Up` hitmaker asked 15-year-old Lourdes to select the performers to go on the road with her in a talent show style contest at London`s Pineapple Dance Studios, but upset some professionals who believed the 53-year-old singer would be judging.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "A lot of dancers were upset Madonna wasn`t involved at the audition stage. But she knows Lourdes is more than capable of picking from the heats.
"Lourdes does routines every day in her mother`s studios as well as taking classes. She can now do jazz, hip-hop, popping, contemporary and even tap. That`s why she is qualified to judge who would be the best back-up dancers for her mum."
The performers created a one minute video of themselves dancing to Madonna`s hit `Celebration` and Lourdes will pick the best before her mother - who is currently recording new material due out for early 2012 - selects the final few who will join her.
Madonna also has three other children, Rocco, 11, Mercy, six, and five-year-old David.
