Beyonce Performs ‘Halo’ At NAACP Image Awards

Beyonce gave the first live rendition of current single ‘Halo’ at the NAACP Image Awards last night, where she also picked up the award for Outstanding Female Of The Year. Interestingly, Ms. Carter thanked her mother Tina, Father Mathew and sister Solange, yet there was no mention of Jay-Z. Just saying…
About her performance, she absolutely nailed it – as usual. It goes to show why she’s head and shoulders above her industry contemporaries at the moment.
What do you think of the performance?

    i didnt enjoy it,
    she hardly did any of the songs stand out notes..

    missed the low not on sound…

    missed the high on the first pre-chorus

    missed the falsetto on the intro to the second verse..

    to me that was a cheated performance,
    why record a song one way, if your gonna sing it completely different, hate that she does that so much.
    If she was scared to mess them up, then thats saying alot about are all confident beyonce, because those notes should have been a breeze.
    but she purposely missed so much of them??. hmmm.

    To The Last Comment I think she's like Whitney Houston, WHitney always sang songs in the studio, but performed it completely different live, it adds more flavor & who wants the artist to sound exactly like the studio it would bore me big time.

    She didn’t thank Jay-Z, because she was too busy getting her dig in at Jennifer – “I am so lucky to have a family: my mom, dad, nephew, sister, blah blah blah. I have never heard her given an acceptance speech with that tone. Even P.Diddy looked unsettled by her remarks. Her mother did not smile at all during her performance. She may be concerned that she and her husband created a monster.

    Bey needs an intervention.

    Haters are so Pathetic. they always try to brong out something bad about Beyonce.

    She can always thank Jay-z anywhere, So ur telling me that she shouldn’t thank her family, or Beyonce Jennifer hudson losy hers, Girl Please..
    Most of the Winners thanked their families, Or is it there fault!
    y’all live Beyonce alone, ause inspite of all this hating, she will always live her life Happily.
    Pathetic Losers

    Maybe she forgot but she should have mention her husband after all she started talking about being married when her album came out before it was private but after single ladies that engagement rign was on, don’t get me wrong that’s my tune and all and I did like most of her new album but the wedding ring is more important than the engaement ring in my opinon and i’m engaged,

    Anyway she should thank Kelly too sh*t people forget they’ve known each other for what nearly 20 years and they are like sisters so where’s the love

    @Anonymous 5:43 I don’t think she was doing that cos that’s beyond bad taste and sick in the head if she would be dissing Jennifer to say that

    Beyonce is just then leading lady in industry right. NO other singer can throw down like Queen B. Every other singer is one dimensional. Alicia – slow songs, Ciara – Dance/uptempo songs, Rihanna – Dance/Pop songs, Keyshia Cole/Mary J. – Love songs. But not Beyonce she can deliver in every court and that is why ahead of these singer and they even look you to her…Rihanna copies her all the times because she is just inspired by her, Ciara did a cover of Diva and always talk good deeds about queen B, even Brandy said she is inspired by her. Beyonce is just straight up TALENTED!!!!….and thats why she beautiful….lol

    Beyonce had her ring on so there is no need to thank Jay-Z. She thanked her stans…isn’t that enough????

    Also, why are the other artists’ performances not posted. I missed the show and would like to see Jennifer Hudson’s performance and the other artists. That is not fair to only have her on the site.

    LMFAOOOOOO ROFLLLLL at someone saying beyonce needs an intervention! I can’t even breathe. That’s thhe funniest thing I’ve heard in A LONGGG TIMEE. Beyonce needs an intervention because she said that she has a great family??? LMAO!

    And to the person who is mad because she sang the song different then the studio version. Ummm??? ok so i BETT You if she sang it exactly like the studio version you would say. “OMG shes so boring she doesnt know how to switch it up”. I’ve come to the conclusion that the BeyHaters are running out of things to say.

    Evidence
    A. Beyonce needs an intervention
    B. Beyonce is ridiculous because she sang one note different in the live version then the studo version.
    C. Beyonce is a monster because she didnt mention Jay-Z during her acceptence speech.
    D. Beyonce was trying to make JHud feel bad by saying she has a great family.

    Just come out the closet already. BEYONCE IS HOT AND YOU DONT KNOW HOW TO HATE ON HER ANYMORE SO YOUR JUST TAKING s*** OUT YOUR ASSES!

    This wasnt bey’s best performance but she did good and I love how she said “SOUND” in this live version cuz the studio version it sounds wierd. I love how after all the succsess and fame bey still gets nervous when winning an award. So Humble.

Beyonce is GREAT…not get over it…Stupid JHUD was even clapping for her when she won. There is not beef between the two of them PERIOD>>>>>

    Afterall this is the NAACP awards where black celebrate Black every accomplishments/achievements whether it be singing, acting, writing, etc. So I would like to see every black person that performed or much less talked at the awards. Can we at least get that?

    Can’t say I liked the performance . I don’t like the song at all to boring, But I guess she’s may have thought Single Ladies would have been a bit much for the show . I’m not a fan of hers (meaning I woouldn’t buy her albums)But Diva is my jam GOOD STUFF BEY !! As far as the posts about artist singing the songs different from the album WELL! I can agree the an certain point . When and artist switch it up to the point where u can’t sing along with them then I find that a problem, but adding some flavor every now and then keeps it fresh!

    Plus WHERE ARE THE OTHER PERFORMANCES ! PLEASE POST THEM AND IF U COULD SO KINDLY POST THE ACCEPTANCE SPEECHES OF JENNIFER HUDSON AND BEYONCE SO I CAN SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE FUSSING ABOUT ,BECUASE I DON’T WATCH TV EITHER !!!!!

    I agree with the person who said she needed an intervention. Her facade has many dimwitted people fooled. When has she ever given an acceptance speech that was articulate…or even contained more than 4 words?….J-Hud loses her entire family…Beyonce has not once in all of her 10 years in the game thanked her fam as she did on this particular award which was very close to the recent loss of J-Hud’s fam….. The other person was completely right and Diddy did look like he spotted the b******* and it stank like pure hell. Beyonce is not humble nor genuine.
