Watch: Beyonce Performs ‘I Was Here’ On Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve

Published: Sunday 1st Jan 2012 by Sam

The last 15 years has seen Beyonce establish a work ethic like no other. As such, rumours of her child’s arrival were never going to slow down the promo train for her latest LP ‘4’. Case, point, her “appearance” on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve last night.

Much to the chagrin of her detractors, the singer offered a previously-recorded performance of ‘I Was Here’ – ironically stealing the show despite not being there.

Watch the stirring showing after the jump…

Despite actually being at this London taping, yours truly is still left awe-struck by this performance. Stunningly stellar, King B continues to show why her stiletto’s stay etched on higher ground. Budding legend.

Your thoughts?

    She was just simply great. :))

    More song and more performances like this!!!

  4. danny b January 1, 2012

    I really REALLY do hate to compare or bring another artist into a post that has nothing to do with them, but dammit, those damn R****** stans STAY bringing Beyonce into their ill-fested ignorant posts so here I shall:

    Lovely, how Beyonce’s “Flop” album ‘4’, which was released back in June, is sitting comfortably at #17 on iTunes, ahead of Rihanna’s ‘Talk That Talk’ which was releases only a little over a month ago.

    And now I shall wait for the R****** Navy to spew some fuckery cuz right now it’s a bit quiet *crickets*

  5. Minajesty January 1, 2012

    Shes so talented! nobody can take that from her.

  6. ISTANN4GAGA January 1, 2012

    and she SLAYED every nanosecond of it.

  7. whyohwhy January 1, 2012

    This woman has true talent, you cant argue about that! Something that the other one will never know anything about..

  8. JohnVidal January 1, 2012

    She did great and this song is one of my favs on the album but people please relax a little, you act as if you just watched one of Whitney Houston´s memorable live showings. I can´t see how these vocals are that stellar. Like please

  9. Bow Down to The Perrylicious… (The Queen of TGJ) January 1, 2012

  11. TinaMinaj January 1, 2012

    People can say or do whatever the hell they want but BEYONCE’S TALENT IS UNDENIABLE!!! JUST AMAZING!!!

  12. TinaMinaj January 1, 2012

    @LAX HERE WE GO……Plz excuse yourself to your numbers and calculate how much of a cut Jay n Bey will be getting from that. ALWAYS REMEMBER ITS NEVER A LOSS FOR BEY WHEN RIHANNA SELLS COZ SHE ULTIMATELY GETS A CUT OF THAT MONEY 😀

    Guess Bey still wins!

    Now back to talent!

  13. Lax January 1, 2012

    And another Thing you have never read, seen or heard Rihanna and her
    Rihtards Waving a BIGGGGG Red flag saying that RIHANNA IS THE BEST
    @ Jack S*** all we or saying is that Rihanna and her R****** or worthy to be praised and the Record Reflects just that
    #1 Rihanna can’t sell Albums,,,,,,,,LIES
    #2 Rihtards don’t talk about nothing but her Singles true, why not
    #3 Rihanna aint S*** LIESSSSS
    #4 Rihanna Hardest Working Pop Star of 2011 “MTV”
    #5 Rihanna #2 Artist of 2011 Billboard
    #6 Don’t Start no Sh and it want be no it
    #7 Rihanna might not can sing as good as the next but rest assured
    shes still cooking with gas and perhaps she don’t have to ever Sind & Dance as good as the next Artist, she has still got it going on and her
    ACCOMPLISHMENTS OR MANY AND BEYONCE AND JAY Z ASS ISN’T COMPLANING ,,,,I BET!!!!!!!!!

  14. Lax January 1, 2012

    @ TINA I WILL THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND KNOW THAT
    NO MATTER WHAT KIND OF S*** YOU S*** STAIN HASH
    UP RIHANNA “HERSELF” HAS ALREADY NIPPED IT IN THE
    BUD AND THE INK IS DRY ALREADY,,, SMILING TO MYSELF!

  15. TinaMinaj January 1, 2012

    @LAX they can’t do that because the whole world knows for a fact (navy inclusive) that SHE IS NOT THE BEST AND WILL NEVER BE THE BEST!!!

    And please tell me why you are bringing her up in a post like this. Do you see a comparison coz i don’t! Rihanna could NEVER GIVE A PERFORMANCE HALF AS GOOD AS THAT SO PLEASE MOVE ALONG WTH YOUR BASELESS COMPARISONS! ITS JUST PLAIN STUPID AND INSULTING TO BEYONCE!

    Given Rihanna has her accomplishments but don’t compare her to Bey coz she could never hold a candle to her….

  16. TinaMinaj January 1, 2012

    @LAX u just need to get some help. S*** stain…..uhm hate to break it to you but i never stated anything other than FACT! The FACT IS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT BEY GETS A CUT OF THAT MONEY AND YOU WILL DEAL!!!! 😀

  17. Bey’knight January 1, 2012

    This is the biggest reason why im a fan – her performances. I dont know any other artist that can pull off an uptempo energetic number one minute and do justice to a ballad right after.

    Oh and if u liked this, you’d love i miss u performance from that same show. It was melancholic and understated accentuated by tranquilizing ballerinas

  18. Pop Royalty (The BeYhive) January 1, 2012

    why u need to bring Rihanna and her fans up in a post which has nothing to do with the 2 of them ?!

    Just tell me , why ?!

    that’s what fake-insecure bey stans do ! you should have kept your comment relevant and commented on the topic in hands , not to get your ass here with previously- planned tactics to get ppl to hate on Rihanna and her stans.

    even if they are hating or talking s*** about beyonce. let them say it , maybe those hateful words is what keep them awake at night and they need to say them here to sleep.
    U and other members should be more classy as beyonce. did u ever saw beyonce respond to the bs that always being said about her ” starting from being fake and ending with worshipping the devil rumors ” ?!!!!
    No ?!
    Then u should do as what your FAv do , let them have their moment. it will come to an end if we ignored every hater. they seek for attention ” by trying to p*** the fans off ” , do not give it to them.
    as simple as this BEYHIVE 🙂
    Let’s just begin the new year with a great thinking and to be more mature 🙂 !

  19. Misfit January 1, 2012

    The one who brought up Rihanna was the bey stan, in all fairness.

    But both sides push on with this fuckery!

    I like both, and don’t see the incessant need to compare two totally different types of artists.

    So much for a new year on this site. Here time “stan”‘s still!

    Lol!

  20. COOKIE – DIVAS- TONI BRAXTON, RIHANNA January 1, 2012

    Spare me the #screamfest ..

  21. Pop Royalty (The BeYhive) January 1, 2012

    @BEY’knight :

    The queen Uploaded a vid to her YouTube channel called ” FASHION” ! you must see it.
    her fashion game was in point this era.

    and I’m so proud that I chose to have b as my main FAv now , what the f*** was I thinking ?! LMFAO 😆

    IDGAF what Simple h*** say about the queen , but she’s just too much for anyone to handle. the complete package as I always say 🙂
    BTW , I downloaded the whole performances of ” A Night with Beyoncé ” , those are downloading-worthy material ! but I just wish she officially release them in a DVD ! I do not have any problem if she’s releasing a DVD everyday. all the award shows already sucked because there was no beyoncé in them ” except BMA” 😉

    I loved the classiness of this ” A Night with Beyoncé ” , reminds me of the same thing about ” I am .. Yours : Live in las Vegas ” !!

    yup , I betta Stan 8)

  22. YOOSONDALOOSE January 1, 2012

    Stunning, that should have been played here as well. But I love that performance, hope it gives her album more sales and raises some single charting positions. Beautiful Bey!

  23. Pop Royalty (The BeYhive) January 1, 2012

    @misfit :

    I know it was a bey Stan ! My words was directed to this Stan ! 😉

    But it is kinda mutual. both stanbases are always messy. me myself is tired to see this stupidity in action.

    we seriously need to stop this tired s*** now. ” it is since 2007 and if it was working efficiently since then we would have seen a change. but it is ineffective and did not do anything ! ” at all !

    Rihanna is doing her thing
    Beyonce is doing her thing

    Their fans will keep on supporting them ! no matter what ! ” flopping included”

    Nothing will get changed by a comment in TGJ too. 😡

  24. Royalkev January 1, 2012

    Beyonce is simply a wizard when it comes to commanding the stage. She’s always in great voice and flawless in executing the emotion needed to capture the feeling in these kind of songs live.

    JohnVidal – We all know that Whitney is the supreme voice in this world, but Beyonce definitely holds her own and has her own magic. Her voice is undeniably one of the best we’ve heard in the last decade.

    For the Bey stan that brought up Rih, I understand your frustrations with them. I won’t say that you were wrong for that, but the Hive should always just take the highroad until provoked. It doesn’t take long for that to happen anyway. These insecure people that compare their favs to everything Bey does only have a silly point to prove and feeling that anyone is in the same lane with B makes them feel that who they all stan for is important! That right there, says a lot.

  25. antonio January 1, 2012

    LOL I can’t believe people are on here comparing bey to rihanna its a big difference beyonce is a power house she can give great live performances as well as excellent studio quality, I love rihanna but she has only impressed me live like twice other than that she’s a alto that has groovy songs and a cute face… Beyonce has impressed me every time..

  26. Pop Royalty (The BeYhive) January 1, 2012

    @JOHNVIDAL :

    compared to divas Of today. those vocals were great.

    and plz. no one can touch Whitney ‘s vocals , but we are in 2012 now not in the 90’s ! it is different age now and this vid above is great according to anyone’s standards !
    if u are a fan of MC, Whitney , Toni Braxton , Tina turner , céline dion and other VOCALISTS U will appreciate what she did in it ! no need to compare divas from different ages buddy. 😉

    so U r the one who need to relax after all.

    and we are stans , that’s what we do ! so why you are acting as if it was shocking to u ?!
    it was a great vocal performance and we said it. is it a crime ! ?
    and it is still ok if we are over-did it while Beyoncé is doing her job perfectly ! but I guess it is better than kissing our favs ass even if she was doing horribly ! right ?!

    the one will work in the benefit of beyonce and the other will work in the opposite direction and beyonce will then know that her fans are so easy to get impressed by a lil to no work from her.

    so speaking in general : what do u prefer ?!
    praising a already- good performance or kissing our favs ass while she’s doing nothing And giving us bad performances ?!

    me myself I prefer the first one ! cuz it will work for her and will help her to get better ” if she’s working hard and showing no slowing to reach what she wants and that is legendary status ” !!

  27. Pop Royalty (The BeYhive) January 1, 2012

    over-doing *
    The first* one will work …

  28. Courtney January 1, 2012

    she did good considering she was pregnant and it’s harder to sing when your pregnant because the growing uterus child/children depress the lungs and diaphram so it’s harder to breathe

  29. mel January 1, 2012

    Wow….she did great…..
    They mislead tho, ABC said she would be there, I figured she wouldn’t being pregnant….

    Did anyone notice that gaga gain some weight around the stomach area? I know she’s not pregnant, just saying…..

  30. tiredfagsmakemegagaga January 1, 2012

  34. Tasha32 January 1, 2012

    @Pop royalty, I agree the performances from this def should have been put on a dvd. Where were u able to download all the performances? I have the ones that aired but not the unaired ones. The links I did find didn’t work! 🙂

  35. Army Of Queen Aaliyah & Lil Kim January 1, 2012

  38. KAT DELUNA FAN January 1, 2012

    happy new year

    l knew it was a old performance but she looks good pregnant

  39. Those That Cannot Do, Stan January 1, 2012

    Smh…people already starting with the b*******, new year and even less maturity.

    Anyway that was a beautiful song. THAT’S the kind of music I want her to make now. Deep songs with meaning that speak of an adult journey not girls running the world or partying.

    It’s BEEN time for Beyonce to step it up lyrically and FINALLY sit down and simply sing, showing some emotion.

    No backward steps and anymore independent women songs, step out of that Box especially since she’s going to be a mother soon.

  40. teeheeeee January 1, 2012

    I don’t care which stars tweeted and who thinks this is hot..she is tired~ why did we have to see her old performace at the begining of the new years? She can’t just go away and have that fake baby of hers can she?

  41. Girrrl January 1, 2012

    Beyonce looked and sounded good. Given I didn’t see a night with Beyonce the performance was new for me.

  42. Lax January 1, 2012

    @BLAH,,,,AND RIGHT BACK ATCHA,,,YOU S*** STAIN AND A NASETY

  43. Quan January 1, 2012

    She did such a good job! No way am I a fan, but I do enjoy some of her music & 4 was a great album in my eyes. Also this song which I believe was written by Diane Warren is a great song as well. But to be fair..while she is prob the biggest female star right now, her talent will never get her to the level of a Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey. What I mean is that you can tell ballads are not her strongest area. She is better dancing and hoping across the stage and singing popcorn music. When it comes to ballads & classics she does good, but not great. But I am sure with time hopefully she can get to that level. Again while she is the biggest female star now, she certainly won’t be placed in that category of a Celine, Mariah, Whitney or Aretha anytime soon.

  44. Anne January 1, 2012

    Loved this performance. Like I said, it was flawless. I agree that it was easily the highlight of the show.

  45. jack January 1, 2012

    Beyonce has been in the biz 16 years. Of course she would know how to perform and command a stage. She was groomed from a early age for stardom. From local gigs in Houston. To star search,to being in a girl group for years. Goes to show her greatness wasn’t a fluke or natural. It was made over the years with all the preparation that went into making her Beyonce. Papa Knowles did well. So she better know how to werk.

  46. JohnVidal January 1, 2012

    @quan
    Agree 100%
    That´s what I tried to say on my first comment

  47. danny b January 1, 2012

    @LAX

    Yup. I see someone’s flustered and upset at the start of this new year. I knew it. Knew someone would get riled. i didnt even read that whole novel you wrote. didnt care to. But scanning it, you seem pretty upset that no matter wha year it is, Beyonce will begin and end as she always does…on f***** TOP. Have a seat in 2011 please and thanx.

  48. danny b January 1, 2012

    “4” is #14 on iTunes ! For the past 2 weeks its been steadily moving up the tally. Now who was it that called it a ‘flop’ again ?? …..waits……..

  49. Meeeeeuuuuuu January 1, 2012

    Great performance, still an illuminati puppet (Hint: Pyramids)
    Do your research open your eyes.

  50. dang January 1, 2012

    Gaga’s performance was more fun. Bey looked gorg but the song is a little too boring and mature for her. She should be singing this in her forties.

  51. Dawn V. Martin January 1, 2012

    I brought in the New Year with this video. Our family just lost my uncle, Harold Martin, who absolutely left his mark on all of us. I felt like she was singing for him and for all of us. Thank you for this incredible song and your magnificent performance of it. It says so much about our purpose here and those who have truly made a difference.

  52. pop royalty ( The BeyHive ) January 1, 2012

    @MEEEEEEUUUUU :

    No , it is Not Illuminati.

    and have more faith in God ” whatever religion u chose ” !!!

  53. JER January 1, 2012

    Everyime BeYAWNce performs she does NOT “steal the show” get the f*** out with this B*******. No one cares and nobody will remember BeYAWNce. Everyone was talking about Lady Gaga as always, nothing new.

  54. MISHKA January 1, 2012

    Dianne Warren said this is the best song she has written yet. She gave it to the right diva. You rock, Queen Bey!!!

  55. TinaMinaj January 1, 2012

    Surprised to hear no one cared from someone pressed because this was a NO.1 twitter WORLDWIDE TREND.

  56. Banshee January 1, 2012

    Dunno, I don’t really think a pre-recorded song should of been done reguardless if she’s preg or not. I think a message would of been enough if you can’t truly be in such a MAJOR event. Just an opinion on it and I understand she’s got a huge following. She’s a great performer yes but she’s not performing her music live. You can not sing most of her songs and do her dances while sounding perfect. She’s not shy in saying she uses Lip Syncing. She’s been up front about it and doesn’t shy away from it.

    Now.. Just want to say one thing to:

    BLAH
    January 1, 2012 at 10:47 am

    Blah.. You seriously need to grow up and find some mature words for the dribble you spew. You cuss, cry and moan over a ‘Singer’ that doesn’t “NEED” to be loved tooth n’ nail by all. You call people in mature and I think you need to reflect on your statement. I’m not gonna say you’re acting like a child because many kids are far better mannered and can use their words like whips without cussing. But, you are a rare breed maybe one that needs to stay off the net or use the net to better enlighten yourself… Anyways… Toodles.

  57. Onyx January 1, 2012

    I don’t want to ruin this moment to her fans or sound like a hater but I am surprised at the reactions of people, i mean i’m losing my feelings or something wrong must be with me but i don’t see the great thing of this performer, yeah she did good but C’mon you act like you have never seen Michael Jackson on stage or Whitney Houston Vocals in her good old days, have you ever seen an Opera singer, you’ve ever heard to Maria Callas, Karen Carpenter, sarah brightman C’mon she’s a good artist but she’s not even closer to the best, i’m not saying my favorites are the best but be real, stop licking Beyonce’s ass. Oh! God take now.

  58. TinaMinaj January 1, 2012

    @BANSHEE Lip syncing???? LMFAO!!!!! YEP YOUR FAVE CAN’T sing and dance! Hence why Bey is the best because ONLY she can do what she does!!

  59. TinaMinaj January 1, 2012

    @ONYX hate to break it to you but MJ was MALE!! She is female so there will be differences!! And what Bey lacks in talent she makes up for with dancing, and wait, AT THE SAME TIME AS SHE SINGS!! Non of the others you mentioned could ever do that. That’s what makes Bey a great artist!

  60. Onyx January 1, 2012

    @TinaMinaj
    Say whaterver you want but im still see her like a normal singer, dancer and performer, nothing impresses me except the reactions of her fans like if God fall from heaven and sing to you.

  61. JohnVidal January 1, 2012

    @onyx
    Glad there is another one that agrees with my first comment. I mean, it was good but hell all this excitement over this vocal performance? Have you ever heard Whitney Houston´s memorable moments?

  62. 80sbaby January 1, 2012

    She killed it!!! And she looked gorgeous while doing it!!

  63. bey’knight January 1, 2012

    @ONYX

    you admitted yourself u dont really like Beyonce so of course u dont see anything great about it and that’s fine. anyone who knows your track record knows u rarely speak favourable of Beyonce. u even went out of your way to bring up her name on a Madonna post to diss her. so your rationale for her performance not being praiseworthy is because MJ, Whitney Houston and opera singers existed hu….well noone compared this performance to any of those. they judged it based on what they heard. the response has been overwhelmingly positive since it aired. i wonder everytime u see your darlings Madonna and Britney, do u also compare their voices and performances to MJ, Whitney n opera singers? i’ll answer that – BIASNESS. u dont have to like orbe impressed by Bey, she has nothing to provebut u can work on coming off”pressed”

    i actually like this post. the angle people go for to try to discredit Bey is mention MJ or Whitney. for one thing, all those legends, i cant even name em all (Prince, MJ, Whitney, Mariah, Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand) have all expressed admiration and commendation for Bey’s work, so if she has their approval, she doesnt need yours, just because you’re af fan of theirs doesnt make u a suitable judge whatsoever.

    @BANSHEE
    they prev aannounced that the performance would be a pretaped one b4 hand. Her fans knows that and excited all the same. if u think a woman 8 + months pregnant should still be working then ur in minority. Beyonce does not lipsynch! and like a link to your proof that she said so. i dont even need one i know its false! she interacts with the audience mid-performances like reading what’s on their placard, that could not lipsynched prior but it doesnt matter really if u believe it or not. her rep as performer is not in jeopardy either way

  64. bey’knight January 1, 2012

    @POP

    no i havent seen it yet. my iphone turns me off my laptop lol and those highlight vids do not on play on mobile devices but i will watch em all tonight 🙂

    @Johndival

    so what exactly is your point? Beyonce doesnt have Whitney’s voice, never did and never claimed to, her fans dint claim she did , nobody does, yeah that includes your other favs, Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys but u dint compare Gaga’s performance to Whitney’s. it’s a great performance and it was called just that, noone said it’s the best ever or her voice is better than Whitney’s. i think you’re bringing that up because u’re uncomfortable givin Bey her props. u gave Gaga a pass for her performance though

  65. Onyx January 1, 2012

    @JohnVidal
    I understand your point, is just that they don’t want to say anything bad about her.

    @bey’knight
    First i always say i’m not a fan of Beyonce but i don’t have any problem with the woman, my problem is that it seems to me that some of her fans think she’s the best in everything when she’s not, Madonna is my favorite female singer but i know and in fact a always say Madge’s vocals are not great, she is just a great entertaiment, she’s very creative too but i say she’s not the best singer or performer in the world, but you act like Beyonce is the virgen Mary, i tell you more i don’t really care that much about vocals (see my favorite) but when someone say Beyonce is the best singer ever HELL! not theres no way, that is my point, be real this performance was good but not something amazing, by the way i’m not a fan of Britney Spears, she just gives me tenderly and sometimes she makes me sad cuz she looks so unhappy and is sad to see somebody who has it all and it seem that she doesn’t even feel it anymore.

    @Onyx

    but thats the thing with u non-fans that stay on her case, no one on this post said Beyonce was the best singer alive so i still dont understand the need for either u or John to bring up Whitney. nobody says she’s thebest at everything she does, i think this performance was just absolute and it u dont think it’s that good both if u could have just stated your opinions accordingly but u dint do that u tried to undermine people’s judgement for praising the performance by bringing up other artists. the most said id she’s the best form this generation, if u want to dispute that, u bring up a better performer from this generation not Whitney Houston or MJ. if its not amazing to u, thats just u , u coulda stated that without the unfair, irrelevant and unnecessary comparisons eg opera singer, like really? i think u just have a problem with the fact that majority of commenters praised her and the performance.

  67. Onyx January 1, 2012

    @bey’knight
    I dont have any problem with taste of people. Do you believe Beyonce is the best artist of this Generation? of course you do, you want the name of an artist that to me is the best artist of this Generation, her name is Lady Gaga, everybidy knows i have a Love/Hate relationship with her but the girl is good very good at what she does, but once again she is not the best singer/dancer but she is a better performer than Beyonce or any other singer of our times in my Eyes. Good luck with the new year honey, i hope with all be happy with our favorites this year, kisses.

  68. bey’knight January 1, 2012

    @Onyx

    Happy new year to u too. i guess we’ll have to agree to disagree. i’ll reiterate this post was not about best anything, no comment even said it was Beyonce’s own best performance. they simply praised it for what it is; i mean she dint flub a single note hey, she did her thing as usual. we never expected everyone to agree Bey is this best performer from this generation 🙂

    @JOHN :

    your whitney can’t dance and sing at the same time as beyonce . she’s Just a vocalist ! a great One to give credit.

    but it all begins and ends with that ! a great vocalist 😡 , she can’t do what beyonce can do ” dancing and getting involved in a heavy & killer choreo while hitting notes ” !

    sorry , even at her prime days she couldn’t !! the same goes to MC !

    on the other hand , beyonce is more than a VOCALIST 😉 ! u know it 😉

    she’s the best performer in this generation. ” not only my opinion” ! gaga ” or any other so-called performers” can’t touch BB homemaker when it comes to performing !

    and do not let me go and drag your gaga to the moon if we are going to compare her to whitney or beyonce.
    i will keep you alive with that shameful ” i pictured whitney singing BTW when i was writing it” BS of hers !
    give me a link when your gaga give a whitney-like kind of vocal performance. WHILE DANCING and involved in a heavy choreo !!!

    or to make it easy 4 u , i want a link with no dancing in it while she give me a whitney-like type of performance !!!! 😡

    just bringing Up whitney to a beyonce post is a proof that beyonce did the job perfectly.
    why u didn’t say : gaga , katy , ke$ha , rihanna , etc .. of other divas ” supposed to be singers in the music industry” FROM THIS GENERATION ?!
    why U chose to compare her to a DIVA/icon/legend from another generation ?! just WHY ?!

    this proves that you do not see IT in contemporary divas and see that beyonce can be compared to whitney !! ( vocals-wise only of course. )

    and also proves that beyonce is the best ” package” in this generation and for this generation. cuz u didn’t compare her to any divas from this generation.

    now i know she killed it 🙂

    now i know she’s that close from that legendary status 😛 !

    i do like that you are always standing up for real talents , but please , be sensible and logic next time 😉

    @ONYX :

    i think that ” OPERA SINGERS” line will come #2 at my list of 🙁 messiest comments ever on TGJ ) after that bird stan who said that keri hilson is the second coming of MJ 😆

    and u think GAGA is a better performer than beyonce ?!

    Ok. it is your opinion ! but did U watch that gaga post ” the latest gaga post in TGJ” ?!!

    that wasn’t a performance , that was a freak show and she looked like a freak . she is still thinking that such foolishness still shock ppl.

    Poor GAGA 😥 , she’s so 2009 😥

    is that is your ” best performer/artist of this generation ” ?! 😡

    if so , let me just log the f*** OFF 😡

    @ONYX : you are messy and u know it though ! 😆

    happy new year 2 you both 🙂

  80. JohnVidal January 2, 2012

    @Beyknight
    @PopRoyalty
    What the hell is wrong with you too?
    I started saying she did good (or great, I don´t remember) but after reading all the comments I needed to say people were exaggerating, that it seemed they just watched the best vocal performance of all time (that´s why I mentioned Whitney, thinking about somebody who actually had some of the best vocal performances the pop world has ever known, if not the best). And that´s it, did you really needed to trash one or two opinions on here that weren´t totally ass kissing? That´s why I said you need to relax
    See? And now, I´m the one who is not relaxed. Do you really think we have to praise this performance that much??? Beyonce can dance? Yes, so what, she was standing there just singing on here, Admit she is not that great vocally. Are u serious? Yeah I said she did great, but really at some points it seems she starts to growl through the whole chorus. How can you try and say Whitney didn´t dance????????? For what??? She had more talent in her voice alone than Beyonce´s whole package. I mean are you still serious? Beyonce can keep trying but she will never be on that highest level like I said many times
    @Pop what´s wrong with you? You defend Rihanna!!! Girl bye!
    @and to the both of you: have you been smoking? I said on Gaga´s last performance post that I didn´t like it!!!!!!! And yeah get over it, some people prefer an artist like Gaga than an artist like Beyonce. You know more of a true artist (songwriter, piano player, creative, whole vision, not fake, not lying when it comes to how she does her music, etc). Beyonce is great, ok but people has the right to disagree she is the best ever you know? Which she clearly is not. Overall as an artist she is very fake (and don´t try to tell me Gaga is fake cos she wears costumes cos that doesn´t have anything to do with being fake when it comes to the music). You know, MUSIC. I´m here for MUSIC. Then the dancing and the rest is great, but the most important thing is the music, which means singing and songwritting. That´s why Adele with “21” has made an album with the quality Beyonce never could and that´s why she slayed each and every one of Beyonce´s albums and their sales (and in 2011), just cos the MUSIC is amazing. Beyonce´s best album is 4 and it is not even better than Born this way. Beyonce´s catalogue is very basic and she has been enough time in the business already. Cos of the MUSIC, is why I say she is not on Whitney´s or Mariah´s level. MUSIC. Whitney was only a vocalist (never lied about songwritting, didn´t need it) but see released timeless music and impacting music (the most impacting music Beyonce has released is Crazy in love). So what´s Beyonce´s excuse for such a basic catalogue? We know she doesn´t songwrite so she could use the best songwriters out there for her. I´ll tell you, her voice is not that special to pull a Whitney Houston impacting the world, that´s why she chooses more basic music. And don´t get me started with mariah cos in addition to also being a better vocalist than Beyonce she is a total songwriter (and still without the need of all those songwriters Beyonce could use she managed to create a way superior catalogue than beyonce)
    Happy new year to the both of you (hel even Screamtine vocals were better the other day in that Xmas special than this Beyonce´s performance, and still I say it´s great but come on)

  81. pop royalty ( The BeyHive ) January 2, 2012

    honey honey i can see the stars all the way from here
    can’t u see the glow !

    *puts my headphones down*

    honey honey , Beyonce is mainly a singer ! MAINLY ! her voice is supposedly her thing !

    she’s a singer , not a songwriter ! that’s the main thing honey ! if an artist can write , it is ok , but it is not obligatory u know !

    and i didn’t say you have to kiss her ass , that’s not my point. but to bring up a 90’s diva to try desperately to bring beyonce down needed a slap from us !! cuz that’s wrong and stupid !
    why not we compare whitney to aretha for example ?! 😯
    u wanna get stupid now ?!! :X

    and for me beyonce is better than whitney ! why having a telephone while u can have multi-functional iPhone ?!! 😛
    beyonce’s package is better , and since she’s a hard working woman , i’m sure ” with the help of god” she will be better than other divas ! whitney wasn’t the best among her rivals , but beyonce IS ! ” and don’t make me toy with your gaga , i know the b**** since she was stefani on the album cover of red & blue” so let’s not ….

    and MUSIC doesn’t mean ” singing and songwriting” !

    a lot of legends don’t write their songs ! and their greatest hits aren’t theirs !
    songwriting is an ability , not obligatory ! and gaga’s songwriting is not impressive to begin with ! so what ?! ke$ha write her own songs , did that make her a better artist ?!

    NOW what ?!

    u see how stupid U can get ?!

    songwriting is not Obligatory ! this is the music industry ! having ONLY a good voice is the minimum requirement ! other abilities are BONUS !

    it is all about the package honey , and beyonce got the best one !

    and i said don’t make me drag your gaga i said !

    there’s a difference between a singer and musician honey !! gaga only knows how to play piano ! that’s the bonus i will count for her if u asked me ! her songwriting isn’t impressive ! i don’t know a deep song she made till know to talk about her songwriting like that ! u blame us bey stans that we exeggrated about bey’s vocal performance above while you are Over-rating gaga’s writing skills ?!

    and please , stop that s*** ! gaga is the fakest artist humanity ever known ! don’t make me go H.A.M on your ass ! the b**** was known as ” stefani” and was having a sound like ” norah jones” , now she changed it and went electro-pop with the ” gaga” name ! she’s a sell-out ! the same as nicki minaj !

    and she doesn’t even like electro-pop and she wanted to be jazz artist and do that kind of songs ppl seem to get bored of since sec 1 !! but her producer ” bob fosari” FORCED her to go the electro-pop way ! that’s why she keep making ” acoustic versions” of her songs ! because she’s doing what she didn’t want to do from the start but was forced to do it ! ( plz , and do it for yourself before me , if u are a gaga stan , know more about her before talking to me , cuz i am one of the few ppl in the world who knew gaga before the fame days ” !! i know what this b**** is hiding in her pants ! but don’t worry , it is not a d*** 😛

    so yes : gaga is fake !!!! 😡

    tell me that’s not being fake and sold herself to be famous and get ppl’s attention ! ” not to mention the several ass kissing of legendary asses , copying madonna , over-hyping her s*** up to unbelievable levels of lying to ppl ”

    i said do not get me started ! 😉

    here is your fav is fake , and IN music as u desired 😛 !

    BINGO BINGO BINGO 😆

    other points you mentioned is your personal opinion and i don’t attack ppl’s opinions , esp if i respect those ppl AS U ” beyonce’s basic catalogue of music , etc …. ”

    but you can’t touch beyonce’s VOCALS ! and do not compare her to 90’s OLD divas ! that’s stupid.

    compare her to the ppl of NOW ! and i better be away while you are dong your comparison honey 😉

    and no one talked about whitney or said that beyonce sounded better than whiteny , from where did u get that s*** ?!

    and also do not get me started on MC , please ! let’s just keep it CUTE tonight ! i know 2 U she’s the baddest b**** and all , to me she ain’t !
    and i don’t wanna mess with her tonight , esp if she’s a friend of BB 😉

    happy new year darling 😉

    oh , and being a former RIHANNA stan has nothing to do with having a clear point of view !

    just admit it , i always WIN 😛

    *press play on LOVE ON TOP* 😉 and raise the volume to listen to her powerful vocals ! 😉

  82. pop royalty ( The BeyHive ) January 2, 2012

    and don’t try to trick me to shade my sweet adele , i won’t fall for it ! i love this b**** to death .

    but as i said , songwriting is not an obligatory requirements to be respected as an artist ! no one said said that.

    it will be appreciated and all. but it is still A BONUS sweet hearts !

    *now countdown started playing* 😉

  83. JohnVidal January 2, 2012

    @pop
    wow you have a problem. Look your English is better than mine so I´m not here to debate again ana again.
    When did I say being a songwriter is obligatory??????? In fact I said many greats aren´t, for example Whitney, but they have voices like no other, memorable (big example Whitney again). Don´t try to tell us Beyonce´s voice is memorable cos NO. I don´t care if she has the best voice among nowadays superstars. So if she were mediocre, I would be stupid cos of not praising her? Just cos she has the best voice among Britney, Keshe, Rihanna and Katy Perry????? haha Look she was lucky to be a star in this era. It´s not my fault.

    But even if it isn´t obligatory you have to know music is about songwriting and singing, I mean, dancing you don´t create music, do you get it?

    So for people to get what you are on about:
    – You like Rihanna, and even were a stan!
    – For you Beyonce is better than Whitney Houston (omfg)
    – Gaga is fake cos she can make many types of music, and I mean MAKE, cos she songwrites
    – Beyonce lying doesn´t count
    – Mariah Carey is irrelevant to music
    – You hate gays, but probably you are against racism
    – You love Adele (like everybody else right now) but who knows, next year you´ll probably feel about her like you just did with your great Rihanna

    Also, do you know atheist people do exist???
    Happy new year, nobody is reading us, this is in page 2
    Also, Beyonce´s “4” was great, maybe she finally decided to make music… not basic music. She can, cos she has all the songwriters she can get and an amazing voice (amazing enough). See? I was here to make compliments and then you started s***

  84. pop royalty ( The BeyHive ) January 3, 2012

    @JOHN :

    i didn’t say beyonce is better than whitney. plz show me when i said it.

    i said beyonce got more talents than whitney. and i can still debate on that. whitney’s voice is all what she got ” with all due respect to her legendary status u seem to over-rate it” !

    beyonce got more than a good voice. and i didn’t say beyonce got better vocals than whitney. if u understood that from what i typed: I’M SORRY !
    whitney’s vocals >>>>>

    i can list all of her greatest hits and all. just because i WAS a rihanna stan doesn’t mean i have ONLY her 6 albums in my iTunes library and that’s it . i believe i am the most diverse music lover in this site. and english being not my native language or anything. i guess i know how to appreciate good music !

    but i gotta admit it that being ME with the type of environment i live in , i ma not that exposed to variety of MUSIC as ppl who are in US or UK or anywhere else.

    so Yeah , if that what you are hinting to , i’m gonna be honest and admit it. i don’t really see ppl u call icons/legends as what u see !

    it is all strange to me if we are talking basics. but i will respect what those ppl did anyway , whether i liked it or not. but i do not Over-rate them ! SORRY !

    but no one really talked about beyonce being on the same level vocals-wise. so … there’s no problem between me and U on that !

    and maybe i am not that great in english ” english is certainly my thing , but i’m doing my best though” !
    i’m all for doing mistakes and learning from them !
    but to stay on the topic u opened for unknown reasons :

    I know adele since she released ” chasing pavements” , and i thought u will understand what type of artists i like when i said i knew gaga before the fame days , so now u know i like UNKNOWN artists ” who they get famous after that and it depends if i’m gonna like them or not after the fame inject it’s poison in their veins ” !

    so i refuse to be called ” adele-bandwagon-stan” !! i loved this b**** since i heard her voice in the radio. since second 1 ! and majority of ppl here ” who like music” tend to support unknown and underrated artists ! hence i knew ” gaga” while she was in her ” red & blue” days.

    don’t know if it is the case with u here.

    and i see that you are bringing up irrelevant points , i think i said u are ” free” to say ” beyonce is fake , beyonce is lying, etc … ” but if u are talking music. we might have disagreement. what u think is “normal” , i might have a different point of view and vice versa !
    it is still your opinion though , but who doesn’t LIE ? 😉
    are u that perfect that u never told a lie ?! gaga never lied ?!

    let’s not about who’s fake. cuz u ppl seem to ” abuse” this particular word ! who’s not fake in this music industry ?!

    so what’s really your point ?!
    i am not god to judge her , i keep it about the music. this b**** ” beyonce” make good music and i like hers ! as simple as that. and she got the minimum requirements to be one of my favs , and soon to be my main fav ” but i will still enjoy others 😉 ” !

    and mariah carey is not irrelevant to music. i still enjoy this h**’s greatest hits album and all.
    but she’s not that hot as she used to be in her prime days ” irrelevant to the music scene and her name being brought up when someone get compared to OLD 90’s divas ” . it is all different now u know. nothing will make her less respectful to me. but i just hate that this site over-rate everything she do whether it is right or wrong !!!!!

    so to summarize :
    i like MC , and i love to shade her from time to time. but when it comes to music ! i better hush. 😳

    and if u wanna debate with me about gays and racism it is ok with me !

    i am not racist . AT ALL ! maybe cuz in my country , i am not that affected by such foolishness. here we are all racially-equal ! no one is better than the other.

    we are really more organized than U when it comes to those stuffs, only thing that is different is the money , ppl who rule us are dumb , and when u follow a dumb ……. ” what do u expect ?! ” !!!!! 🙁

    but yes , i am not that racist and i LOVE black , asian , caucasian , etc…. PPL ! i love to talk with ppl from all over the world regardless of their ethnicity or their skin color , it is not my business that god created them like that ! i will still like them as they are.

    but it is not like that with the gays and it’s my personal opinion. i’m not that religious as u can see , cuz half the s*** i do here ” or online in general” is prohibited in my religious beliefs ! but i just do not support the whole gay thing. and it is not really my topic of interest to talk about online TBH. cuz some ppl might get affected by it , and adding my bad english to it , it won’t sound good.

    so i prefer to be silent about it without hurting anyone’s feelings and all cuz i am aware i am the foreign one , not U ppl !! so …..

    i don’t really like 2 talk about that topic and i will be glad if u don’t ever bring it again. IDC if someone is taking it in the ass or in his mouth . not my f*****’ business . but i am not with that for 1000001 reasons.

    to me :
    no one was born gay. it is all about the surroundings and it’s direct effect on the human being. as simple as that ! and if u wanna a scientific debate on that i’m ready for it anytime !

    so it is abnormal biologically !

    religiously :

    U know it.

    as a life style :

    it is not guaranteed to stay for so long. cuz it is not normal in the first place and GOD won’t bless it , let alone ppl won’t be ” so happy” about it ! and since you weren’t created alone in this word and u areliving with other ppl on the planet . it will be tough as a life style.
    and god didn’t create women as a waste. god created everything for a reason.

    and i know what ” atheist ” means , u think i was born yesterday ?!

    i feel sorry for them , just send me one of them and i will make him/her re-think about it ! cuz we are not animals living in a jungle ! God created us a brain ! and we might use it to help ppl and to make the world better place in general , not to be all about s** and our instincts or whatever the f*** they are thinking about. they just so basic that they wanna believe what they want to believe. living in their own narrow world !

    and hey ! i can def proof to them that there’s a god. not a big deal if u are living in a country like mine 😡 ! and also being a pharmacist made me sure about the whole ” there’s a god up in there” topic.

    we are just so basic for him to understand what he’s doing !

    so those ppl are welcome anytime. 🙂
    and i don’t know what’s your definition of music exactly , but i know songwriting is not that of a big deal as u made it out to be.

    PEACE ! and happy new year 🙂

  85. JohnVidal January 3, 2012

    – Boy! For you Whitney is being overrated by people?? What the hell are you doing with Beyonce then? Please
    – Gays were born this way, just deal with it. Animals have it in them too. Do u think people choose to suffer in this life?
    – I´m atheist. You can´t understand how ridiculous and basic some believers affirmations sound like to atheist people, who in fact usually are pretty intelligent individuals (what the hell has being atheist to do with s**? I´m more conservative on that than all the people I know. Talking about s**… you stan for Rihanna, remember?)
    – Like I told you, my English is worse than yours, so stop moaning 🙂
    – I´m not from the UK or the USA, so I´m a stranger on here too (well I suppose being Egyptian is way more different than being from Spain, but you know what I mean)
    – Mariah not being as hot… what the hell are u going to do when Beyonce is not that hot? Bashing her just cos of that? (and btw maybe that moment is not that far away)
    – Last but not least, even if they are past divas like you say, there´s a thing about Whitney, Mariah or Celine that Beyonce has never achieved, total recognition globally, from kids to grandparents everybody knows and got chills with Without You, IWALY and My heart will go on. Beyonce has not that and at this rate she will not get there (how can she with a worse voice and a non stunning material?). For example Adele has done it that way, touching people and leaving them stunned with MUSIC. Still nothing like the blockbaster divas I mentioned. Of course Madonna would be the other one with the most impact ever (not cos of the voice in this case). And I´m not talking about sales so don´t start to say what @beyknight always says about sales decline, it´s more than that (and I explained the best I can with my English)
    – You talking about all the music you like, which is great, but stanning for Rihanna… sorry but it´s still a NO
    – Finally, I think you have to admit you´d love to live in Europe or the uSA don´t you? You said it yourself you don´t like the environment you live in and for example the anglo music is your passion (it happens to me too that I don´t care much about Spanish artists). I invite you to come to Spain, I´m sure you´d love it. Few countries live freedom in such a nice way. You´ll need to know homophobia and atheist haters are not welcomed here 🙂
    – In the end, this was a nice talk, wasn´t it? My wish for this 2012 is that you stan a little bit less for Beyonce (when I say fake I refer for example to the interviews, she is not capable of saying any f****** thing cos she is afraid of saying the wrong thing, she is fake or at least slow, that´s what I mean with fake, obviously everybody in the industry has their limits and have to do things they don´t want to musically, I know that, no need to bring Gaga (and btw I think Gaga was more herself now than with the Fame and all the easy dance music)), and talk good things about all those people you say you like but really, few times we´ll get to see you praising them. You need to do it more and you´ll seem less biased

    Happy 2012!

  86. pop royalty ( The BeyHive ) January 3, 2012

    that’s as an intro 😆

    and i will def love to visit spain. maybe next year or somthin’ cuz i have still like 6 months before i get graduated and then boof . i will do whatever i like ! 😉

    i do not hate living in egypt. but i just don’t feel like this is the place for me. i have a lot of things i wanna do and going to europe or to US will be the first step in that path. hopefully i can do just that !

    tbh, i don’t have any problem with ppl of different religious beliefs . i’m not christian or jewish either. but i believe there’s a god. i didn’t say anything about them as persons , but i just don’t get them. i tried to , but i failed big time cuz my logic unit in my brain refuse to accept what they say. as simple as this !! and i do not generalize ” normally” , but most atheist ppl i had conversations with weren’t that intelligent . for example :

    ME having a conversation with one of them ” and do not take it personally , i will narrate what happened and i will leave u to judge ” :

    ME : thank god i made it and arrived in time

    him ” atheist ” : whatever , how did u do it anyway?

    ME : i was just running down the streets and ” suddenly ” found some parts of a car gathering together to make/form a car and after it all happened , i drove it and came here !! as simple as this .

    him : but but but …. how those parts came together all by themselves ?! that’s unbelievable , like WTF ?! that s*** can’t be serious , how this happens suddenly , like WTF ?!

    ME : so u do not think i’m honest about it.
    HIM : absolutely and this is ridiculous. cars don’t get together by themselves , there are ppl who make them. and they don’t get the f*** together from corners of the street. what is that s*** u been smokin ?!
    ME : nothing , but how u say now that this is ridiculous and u believe that the world was made suddenly ?!
    HIM : no , it is not the same case as your s***.
    ME : but it is the same concept. whoa !
    HIM : ok , maybe you are right after all. but i’m not just a believer in god and that stupid s***, i can live without them u know .

    ME : it is your life not mine, but u did said i was being ridic , so ….
    HIM : sorry , G2g , bye

    😡

    anyway , i have no problem in having conversations with them and all. but the point is : when i talk with ppl of different beliefs / thoughts , etc…

    but that conversation above wasn’t intelligent at all if u asked me. and me and him are still friends regardless 😆 !
    so i am not that complex when it comes to different kind of ppl with their different beliefs and points of view.

    lolz ! and yes ! i was a rihanna stan now i am not ! and i don’t think i am a delusional stan of beyonce now either ! i’m cool 😛

    and i’m not with the whole ” she’s the greatest , she’s the baddest , etc … ‘ ! i love them all ! ALL !
    but it is just the effect of the age , every 10 years things seem to change in every aspect of life ! music and all !

    so today she’s hot , tomorrow she is not !!!! legends and icons stay forever in ppl’s minds ! so …

    let’s just be thankful we had ppl like MC and whitney in our life. cuz only god knows what shitty gimmicks we are having today. ! and yes , i think rihanna contributed , in a way , in the downfall of the real music ! and this is the most honest line u will ever hear from a former 6-years- stanning for- rihanna stan (U_U) !
    and of course old divas s*** on today’s ! but you have to agree that beyonce is the best among those b****** of today. accomplishments , talent and all ! only her music is not that appealing to a lot of ppl . i already made it clear during my days as a rihanna stan in TGJ , u remember 😛 ?!

    i want her to be :
    more versatile.
    more open with her fans.
    thinking before talking.

    and BTW , i looooooooooooove european music.

    i don’t hate gays like real hate as if i’m cursing them all day or something, actually i see a lot of them whenever i am online , and since i’m that westernized as u can see , i’m just being cool with them step by step , but now , i just don’t support such thing as ” being gay” ! i don’t know what i’m going to be labelled by then.

    but i just don’t get it @john ! maybe u got used to it cuz your environment deal with it as a normal thing , but mine don’t , so …

    maybe this is the problem after all !! so u are right in a way ! maybe if i moved on from here maybe i will be less hard on them , they are humans after all .

    and i won’t even speak about yo gaga 😡 , u know it all already ! 😛

    but i love me some adele 😉 and INNA 😛 😛
