    Yes for the Only BLK b**** in Heels to be able to Sell Out ABC for a full 90 Minutes.

    This was more so a DOCUMENTARY than a Concert. Bey HOLDS BACK a lot in many different ways, but I mean it really doesnt take much for her to be THE VOICE/PERFORMER OF OUR GENERATION, just look at her so called “competition”.

    It could have been better edited though but still a good show as was Last Year’s IAM Yours.

    seriously this was boring… i have always praised Beyonce on her shows including “I’m Yours” and the experience .. this right here is a mistake.. i know she’s doing Bey (herself) but the show for me from the start jst screamed #amess .. even the documentaries there and there throught out ruined it.. i know she was so keen to show her fans crying like she’s seen with Mike’s tours.. but that was too much editing.. and her performance was jst not even average but too clumsy..

    People are crying because they’re overwhelmed, that’s all. Some people react like that when they meet their idol, that doesn’t necessarily mean they think they’re God.

    This is not the whole thing(like seriously do you think she would show the concert for free). This was made especially for the special and was edited to the T to fit all the shows into one performances which makes it look sloppy.

    On the DVD from what I hear its just the London Concert she shows which will be much better. That 90 min thing on ABC was just ONE BIG COMMERCIAL.

    I like beybey(somedays), but im not gonna put that broad on the same level as mariah carey, whitney houston and michael…

    beyonce is not curing cancer, nor did she restore world hunger..
    so my point is, unless that broad is paying for my college education, bought me a house, or paying my bills for me.i dont see the point in crying when i meet this broad..

    I wasn’t comparing Bey to Michael, I’m just saying that the same way hardcore fans used to go crazy over seeing him in person, hardcore fans do the same for Bey, and other artists as well. Some people are like that when they meet their favorite artists. It has nothing to do with the person curing cancer, ending world hunger or paying their fans’ bills. It’s called being overwhelmed. You may not get it, but some people are more emotionally fazed by certain things than others.

    She’ll do it. Don’t worry.

    Watching this special yesterday made me respect Beyonce even more, she works SOOO Hard! That’s what I would pay to see, period. I don’t even think she knows how to not give 200%. I ran into my own personal Beyonce fatigue at least 4 years ago but then I recognized that Beyonce has to be one of the hardest workers in the game, I absolutely respect that.

    What was aired last night made me understand why her stans go so hard for her, she gives them everything she has. Absolutely no half- stepping …You gotta love that. Grown men screaming and crying- hilarious! Good stuff

    I respect Beyonce so much, she so involved in her work, she doesn’t just sit back and let others tell her what to do, she is definitely the BOSS.

    For the person that said Rihanna is gaining on Bey, I respect your opinion, but how is she gaining. Her last album barely sold three million, to Beyonce’s 7 million. If that’s the case Katy Perry is also gaining on Beyonce since she has a lot of #1 singles.

I CANNOT wait until the DVD is out on Monday (UK), ima go and buy it as soon as its out…..This taster has just almost give me a heart attack. I actually stopped doing my university assignment (which is nowhere near completion) to watch it!

    There is no doubt that Beyoncé is the best live performer HANDS DOWN, her music is AMAZING, she is AMAZING and just a god send.

    Beyoncé is actually MY LIFE!

    I understand that not everyone likes Beyoncé but y’all have to agree that her voice and vocal range are second to none. she is up there with Whitney, Mariah and all the Greats that have been recording in our life time.

Most of you haters ain’t s*** yourself and hate to see anybody else make something out of theyself or do something positive. You should be proud of artist like Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay Z, and any and all other successful black artist. Because of their success, our children know, with hard and unrelented work, they too can grow up to be successful. We need to support not only our successful black artist but any other sucessful black people who are doing somethnig good and positive. If you so damn jealous, why are you even watching or listening to her songs and videos. Do the world a favor and STOP ALL THE DAMN HATIN!!!

    What’s up with the Wonderwoman outfits? It pisses me off when American women get man mad and spout their feminist junk all over a stage wearing a Wonderwoman outfit. It’s so contradictory and shows that nothing has changed for women in twenty years because young beautiful, talented celebrities refuse to put some clothes on. When Beyonce can walk on to a stage without her b****** half out and her legs semi-covered and then sing “If I were a boy…” and still have the same records sold across the world…that’s when I’ll spend my hard earned money on her music. Otherwise, she’s a beautiful black woman with a great talent lost in the “American diva” culture and for me that’s sad…

    Honey, just because Beyonce is blowing all those other mediocre stars away doesn’t mean that she is anywhere close to MJ’s level. Looking at the Dvd, I’m quite dubious because it looks like she went to extra lengths to put in the few scenes where people were crying. MJ didn’t have to do all that. It was what it was. I know these artists want to be on his level. Who wouldn’t. But, we have to realistic. A career like MJ’s was a once in a lifetime deal that even he would’ve been hard-pressed to repeat. Hell, grown men passed out at his concerts. These people are just crying. I’ve seen this at Mariah Carey concerts, Whitney Houston concerts, Boyz II Men concerts, R. Kelly concerts, Usher concerts. This isn’t only relegated to artists like Beyonce. When people start giving her awards that only heads of states get and when people in prison start doing her dance routines, then let me know for real. Michael had people (about 5,000 a night), fainting, crying, and going on tantrums. That’s something we’ll probably never see again. Beyonce is probably the best artist out right now, but she doesn’t have the kind of competition MJ had when he was at his peak. Michael had to compete with Stevie Wonder, Prince, Tina Turner, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Madonna, G N’R. Just think about it. His album bad didn’t even win any grammies in 1988 because competition was so stiff and that was one of the most innovative albums in the history of the recording industry. Same thing with Dangerous. If Beyonce had the kind of competition MJ had in his day, she most likely would be an artist on the level of Ciara or Keri Hilson. If she was so great, why aren’t any of her albums on the list and the best selling albums of all time. Why did Lady gaga come out of nowhere and totally snatch her tired lace-front. She hasn’t recovered from that, yet. Nobody replaced MJ, and even though the media mounted a thorough plot to commit total character assassination against him, he still emerged victorious. He was at his peak for 13 years straight. By that time, there was no question that he had become the greatest entertainer of all time. Now that he is no longer with us, his legacy has become even more sure. If anything, it is not fair to compare Beyonce to the King of Pop, because he has too much of a head start to achieve all of the things he did, and for that reason alone, Beyonce will probably never accomplish half the things he did. It’s just a different time. Beyonce was voted the Queen of Pop in a poll taken by over 100,000 people in London (because not many people in the U.S. would even dare agree that she was the Queen of Pop). MJ was voted the greatest singer of all time in a poll taken by over 10,000,00 people all over the world. That’s the difference.
