Beyonce To Make Stage Return At Alicia Keys’ Black Ball

alicia keys beyonce black ball e1348183863991 Beyonce To Make Stage Return At Alicia Keys Black Ball

May marked the return of Beyonce to the stage following the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy at the top of the year. However, fans hopeful to see more of the superstar thereafter were left somewhat disappointed when she returned to the normality of her day-to-day life. Indeed, the nearest her ever-loyal BeyHive got to a King B performance was her moshing in the pit of many a festival this  Summer gone

That’s all set to change come November, however. For, it has been announced that the ‘Crazy In Love’ singer will hit the stage at Alicia Keys‘ annual Black Ball gala.

Details after the jump…

According to the Associated Press, the 31 year old and Carole King will perform at the November 1st fundraiser which is held each year to benefit Keys’ Keep A Child Alive charity.

Keys’ herself (whose new album ‘Girl On Fire’ arrives later that month on the 27th) will also take to the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom event, which this year honors Oprah Winfrey and Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo. The pair are being recognized for their philanthropic efforts.

Actress and talk-show host Whoopi Goldberg will sere as the the night’s emcee.

********

 As with all Ms. Carter performances, this is sure to be an event in itself. Needless to say, roll on November!

Randomness: Ironically, it was at last year’s London Black Ball that we quizzed Alicia on the whereabouts of her and Beyonce ‘Put It In A Love Song’ video. We’ll share the footage of her response some day, one day. Until then, check out the ladies live performance of the track below…

    Beyonce is very classy. You obviously have never seen that growing up so its a foreign concept to you. Sorry honey. Beyonce is in no way fake. That just quiet, calm, and classy. Sorry you dont know what that is. Too bad.

    This hoe stops shaking her ass for like a month and her fans jizz in their pink underwear at the thought of her “epic returns” bitches goodbye.

    Beyawnce is so irrelivant! She has had no singles impact on the radio in the past 4 years, her album tanked and hasn’t been on the charts since late 2011 and this hoe is now trying to get hype for a “comebck” when her last comeback is barely over.

    She is now making a comeback with a huge megastar right? Nope, Alicia Keys, who cannot even sing a single note on key! BeFlopsay is desperate, she is almost 40, her fake pregnancy stunt and reborn doll didn’t work and nobody will ay attention to her anymore #POORDAT

    For a Rihanna fan you sure do stay checkin for Beyonce everymchance you get. NOW REALLY WHO ARE YOU REALLY A FAN OF YOU STAY TALKIN ABOUT ABOUT BEY AND NOT…….I’M SORRY “WHATS HER NAME”. Heres question for you: How is Bey a flop when she has PERFORMED for and MET President Obama multiple times? Does Rihanna have the star power to meet the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED f****** STATES OF AMERICA b****? I think not, so try again because everything you say about Beyonce is so redundant. Shes irrelevant, yeah that why her and Jay-Z are the highest $earning couple$ from 2011-2012 and they are worth a combined $800 Million, with beyonce being worth $300 Million alone. #STFUBitch

    lol tell me about it. So irrelevant she’s dining with the prez, performing at UN HQ, being named world’s most beautiful woman, having a course named after her, a rare species named after her and making 40 mil a year. Kii

    DC3 Replied:

    If she’s irrelevant then why does she still get nominated for awards and win them? Doesn’t matter if 4 wasn’t as successful as her previous albums. It doesn’t change the fact that Beyonce is a successful artist and icon.

    KingBey Replied:

    4 was on the charts 2 weeks ago.
    Alicia is a better artist than Rihanna.
    Beyonce was apart of telephone two years ago. Sweet dreams was a hit, as well as halo.
    Love on top was a mega r&b hit.

    More publicity efforts for Hollwood’s biggest thief, what philanthropic efforts from BeYAWNce when the b**** constantly steals song credits from actual and real songwriters. The b**** didn’t even include Ne-Yo’s name on the song credits for “irreplaceable” in the original BDAY cover until she was caught stealing and was so embarrassed that she included it in the re-release.

    BeYAWNce is a shameless thief, fake, liar and crook and until she compensates Des’Ree, Ne-Yo, En Vogue, Jennifer Armour (Song: Baby Boy), BC Jean (Song: If I were a boy), Lorella Cuccerini (Billboard Awards stolen performance), Rickey Allen (Song: Cater 2 U) to name a few for their hardwork, creativity, and intellectual property rights, she should be exposed as the shameless thief she is.

    I use to really like Alicia Keys now all I see is a MIRANDA LAMBERT style homewrecking skank! I hope she produces new music that will draw me back in. Her music as of late has been very disappointing. “Girl of Fire” is just not it!

    Well seeing as how you don’t even know the name of Alicia’s new song “Girl ON Fire”, I don’t think your judgement really matters. Btw, there is nothing disappointing about Alicia or her music. Her new music, like her is on fire and if you don’t like it, then don’t listen to it. I’m sure she’s not going to worry about making a song that will please you, someone who is openly demeaning towards her and her music. I doubt she could stoop to your level of immaturity.
    As for the Black Ball, I know it will be a huge success as it always is but this year I believe will be especially huge as Carole King is an icon and Alicia with her will be quite something to see. A piano battle maybe? The people who attend should consider theirself very lucky.
