Watch: Beyonce Tributes Dolly Parton & Whitney Houston Live At The ‘Mrs.Carter Show’

Published: Saturday 2nd Nov 2013 by David

Two nights ago, Australia’s ‘All Phones Arena‘ opened it doors to BeyonceMrs.Carter Show‘, serving as the first Australian venue to be serviced with the sold out world tour.

It was there, as she prepared to close the show, that the ‘Stop Sign’ singer moved fans with her very own take on Whitney Houston‘s Dolly Parton crafted classic ‘I Will Always Love You‘, in tribute to the late entertainer.

How her cover fares when placed next to the originals?

You tell us, after the jump!

    RIP Whitney The Voice Houston – True Great
    Anyway Sam: how many times are you going to post the same performances over and over again? In each of her many concerts around the world? Seriously. Isn´t there any other artist constantly doing shows and tv promo out there for you to show your readers? 🙂

      true great? she’s not even an artist. she didn’t write, produce, didn’t play any instruments. there’s nothing great about her, not even her voice which is overrated to high heavens. aretha franklin slays her, hell even mariah was more versatile singer than whitney. and her music catalog is very basic. her most famous song is a cover that overshadowed all of her other songs combined (which are repetitive and sounds exactly the same). mariah is a true great because she is actually an artist, whitney is not, sorry.

      • Quan November 2, 2013

        Umm no! This mariah you speak of learned from Whitney. Anyone with common sense knows that Whitney was the voice. Sorry her 7 consecutive classics are still very much relevant today. I am sure the Greatest Love of All will be around much longer than Touch My Body and Obsessed with Me. Please have a seat. While Mariah is a GREAT artist she will never be what Whitney Houston was to this world!

      • Oh No You Didn’t! November 4, 2013

        Oh honey, don’t you dare touch Whitney on this one. She is a TRUE ARTIST in her own right. She produced, arranged, and SUNG all of her material from I’m your baby tonight till her last project, Sparkle. You think she’s not an artist? try checking out her live performances from the 80’s and 90’s, then tell me otherwise. It doesn’t mean that if you don’t write, or play any instruments you’re not an artist. On the other hand, Mariah is an artist as well and a big fan of hers too, but both are equally talented, great and LEGENDS, VOCALLY AND ARTISTICALLY. Please, just let this debate end already, its 2013.

      • JOHNVIDAL November 4, 2013

        @oh no you didn´t!
        Exactly! I just can´t with these people who are so blind. Desperate hate.

  2. DOSSOME November 2, 2013

    Does she perform this song everywhere now?…With all due respect to Dolly,this is Whitney’s song and will remain that way for eternity…WHITNEY>>>>>DOLLY>>>>>>>>>>THIS MESS

    • Emmie November 2, 2013

      its called a f****** tribute…the girl has a discography full of her owns songs…what u talking bout shut up…Beyonce has always looked up to Whitney Houston she has said this a million times. The moment she saw Whitney Houston performing the National Anthem is when she was most inspired and wanted to be a singer…why trying create hate :s

    • Loyalty November 2, 2013

      It was far from a mess stop being so arrogant.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 2, 2013

      If you don’t like her,why click on the post? Oh,that’s right. Because beyonce OWNS you haters.

    • lol November 2, 2013

      Nope honey, this is Dolly’s song. Be thankful that it made Whitney famous because her other songs are pretty forgotten and overshadowed by IWALY.

      • Quan November 2, 2013

        Not true at all.

    • Monstarebel November 2, 2013

      Lol hiiii

  3. XtinaTheDiva November 2, 2013

    Nothing beats the original version of Dolly!

  4. CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

    Who’s beyonce though?

    Oh the girl that STOLE Tina Turner’s style and funky dance influences and acts like she claimed it first. And what’s sad is her fans thinks she’s original when that’s not even her style. lol smh

    QUEEN CICI >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Tina Turner’s hologram

    Her best moment EVER!

    • Beyanca November 2, 2013

      Girl, bye.
      Beyonce always acknowledges that she was influenced, and inspired by Tina, and others.
      And you know what, that fall is more iconic than anything ciara has EVER Performed.

      • CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

        Beyonce is at her best when she falls!

        QUEEN CICI never ever fell down because QUEENS don’t fall down.

        I remembered that BeYawnQua has a Low IQ so I understand now.

        Your fave is a thief and she can’t even sing without trying to copy Tina Turner’s singing style.

        ORIGINAL >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> UNORIGINAL

        Another example why your fave is a THIEF (UNORIGINAL ARTIST)

        Watch Tina Turner’s hologram

      • Loyalty November 2, 2013

        Who cares if she falls? Many have. Is that the only thing you can boast about. Ciara never falls? LOL Too bad her career fell off a long time ago

    • #1 November 2, 2013

      OMG! 😮 She did steal Tina Turner’s style and artistry. I really liked Beyonce before but now I really see what you’re talking about. Everything on her writes Tina Turner!

      I am shocked.

      • King B Agent (Blue Ivy Brother) November 2, 2013

        Are you dumb or High? Beyonce gave multiple tributes to Tina Turner even at the Grammy’s. And she Call Tina Turner the Queen b****. Michael Jackson and Tina Turner are her inspiration. Now shut the f*** up you sick b****.

    • Loyalty November 2, 2013

      Pressed! Beyoncé always acknowledges Tina, and Tina loves her. Too bad more people are here for Tinas Hologram than Janet and Aaliyahs one.

      • CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

        Your Fave is a thief!
        She’s UNORIGINAL.

        Ciara has a different style and music than Janet.

        Ciara is the QUEEN of CrunkR&B and the entire female division with BeYawnQua bowing down to her. Everyone knows BeYawnQua has tried several attempts to try steal Ciara’s dances.

        And I don’t care if she was a fan of Tina Turner, she still JACKED her style and artistry!

        B can’t even sing without trying to act like Tina Turner. So BYE!

        QUEEN CICI >>>>>>>>> BeYawnQua’s New Repaired Nose Piece

        Ciara might not had a hit in a while but she is still an ORIGINAL and more better singer and dancer while B keeps on trying to Tina Turner’s hologram.
        And BeYawnQua had to suck d*ck for hits!

      • Loyalty November 2, 2013

        B**** just stfu and Bow Down like your fave. Your pressed and jealous.

      • Loyalty November 2, 2013


      • CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

        LMFAO @LOYALTY you can’t even spell.

        BeYawnQua makes them music for them SLOW people like her.

        “……But I know one plus one equals two”

        BEYDUMB! I feel sorry for her all the time. Everyone makes fun of her saying she is Illiterate and the sad thing it’s true.

      • Loyalty November 2, 2013

        I cant spell but I corrected my mistake. Try again.

        ‘Beyoncé had a nose job’
        DEAD when Ciara has

        ‘Beyoncé jacked from Tina’
        You cant jack from someone when you endlessly cite them, slow or what?

        ‘Beyoncé has a low IQ’
        So do you since you can’t even distinguish the difference between jacking something and being inspired.

        ‘Beyoncé falls’
        Ciara cant even book half the stages Beyoncé can TO fall b****.

        ‘Beyoncé makes music for slow’
        And its more popular than Ciaras. You mad?

        ‘Beyoncé stole Ciaras dance moves’
        Firstly watch countdown video, and educate yourself. Ciara wasn’t the first to do any of her ‘moves’ you’re clinging to.

        And lastly, the f****** kiii of it all.

        ‘Ciaras a better singer’

        Have a seat and go purchase ‘Ciara’.

      • CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

        SLOW BEYCUM Stans! Ughhh…… So delusional.

        How can I distinguish between a performer being inspired by another and Jacking their styles?

        Well just look at the slow girl you’re supporting. She is inspired by Tina Turner (YES) and she took her favorites styles and music artistry altogether making fans believe she is ORIGINAL when she is not. I’m sorry and I know you might not understand because you’re a Beyonce fan so that obviously means you’re SLOW but there is other artists that are Original while Beyonce SCREAMS Tina Turner all over.

        Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Brandy, Monica, Aaliyah, QUEEN CICI, Madonna and etc are all ORIGINAL acts why because they have their OWN style and musical signatures. If you made an art portrait of Beyonce and Turner they would look the EXACT same because she took her faves style with the skirt, heels, vocals and funky dance influences.

        So BYE!

      • CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

        These BEYCUM STANS can’t stand the truth lmfao.

        Beyonce or should I say Tina Turner’s hologram weave just got DRAGGED out of her scalp. I’m done, so is BeYawnQua’s nose piece.

      • Loyalty November 2, 2013

        All that and you basically repeated yourself. You cant JACK from someone when you always CITE them. Jacking is when you don’t give credit. She has given Tina credit for everything. And if it was an issue, why is Tina Turner HERSELF happy to duet with her actually said ‘shes better than I ever was’ (which I dont agree with but its her words not mine). Why is it an issue to you? And honey you’re calling me slow yet you cant comprehend that. Not you calling Madonna original either. That’s where I know you are uneducated.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 2, 2013

      @loyalty the effortless dragage>>>>>>>>>

      • Loyalty November 2, 2013

        IT really tried it.

    • musiclover November 2, 2013

      but ciara stole janet jackson and aaliyah styles and dance moves so u cant talk

      ciaras body party art cover vs janet jackson all for you art cover says it all
      lets not pretend that the gimme dat video was a trashy low budget watered down basic failure version of janets rhythm nation…which she tried to hard to make look original

      ciaras best moment is when…WAIT i cant remember ill get back to you on that

      queen janet jackson >>>>>>>>>>> peasant ass fave cici

      • FutureCIARA November 2, 2013

        OMG this argument is ridiculous!


        Me personally IDGAF who has a negeative comment about my fave, music and relevance speaks for itself, Atleast they both still have their jobs as entertainers.

        But this is ignorance, Your giving me a wolf in sheeps clothing right now @Ciara Army Stan, I hope you are not a Bey or Ri stan trying to start stan wars, that s*** is so played out and dull.

        Please get it together Ms.Thing

      • I AM 4 DANGEROUS DAY November 2, 2013

        I can’t believe you chose to be a ciara stan. All the people in the world and you chose Ciara.

  5. SWAREE’ November 2, 2013


    There is a reason why she only sings the first minute and a half of the song. This B**** irritates the f*** outta me.

    • Emmie November 2, 2013

      glad she doesnt even know of your excistance a nobody so your opinion does not even matter…saying you hate on beyonce …but still taking your time to react on a beyonce topic ..

    • Loyalty November 2, 2013

      LOL! Beyoncé gets em so mad.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 2, 2013

      Looking for petty issues to fuel more hate? You’re pathetic.

  6. CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

    BEYCUMCE now is acting like Whitney/Dolly’s song is apart of her music catalog. psh……SMH! At this limp head tranny.

    BeYawnQua I know you’re a slow learner and you can’t think of on how to build your OWN style and artistry developing but stop stealing fellows musicians style and music signatures.



    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 2, 2013

      If beyonce is a thief for being inspired by the LEGENDARY Tina turner,I guess Ciara is too,since she’s practically a clone of Aaliyah and Janet jackson,minus the success.

      • CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

        People always say that but they don’t that QUEEN CICI has a different dancing ability.

        QUEEN CICI is the QUEEN of Crunk! And her dances and singing is far different to those Legendary people you listed.

        But she didn’t copy their styles like your FAVE so don’t talk to me LMAO!!!! 😀

        Y’all BEYCUM Stans can’t handle me or the Revolutionary Army of QUEEN CICI fans.

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 2, 2013

        Queens don’t get served lawsuits on stage. Nice try tho. Put that energy into supporting your fav instead of stalking beyonce. Now begone,peasant.

      • CIARA ARMY STAN November 2, 2013

        QUEENS don’t fall off stairs!

      • Loyalty November 2, 2013

        Who tf calls Ciara a queen besides her delusional ass stans. Don’t be mad its not just the Hive who refer to Beyoncé as a Queen.

  7. BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 2, 2013

    I don’t understand the reach going on here. The hate for beyonce is real. So being influenced and inspired by someone is stealing their image? If that’s so,then probably the whole industry should be sued. And she sounded fine. So stfu

  8. Loyalty November 2, 2013

    If only these Ciara stans did this much work purchasing Ciaras albums as they do running their angry ass mouths about more successful artists.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 2, 2013

      They’ll never learn sis

  9. Rosie November 2, 2013

    Why is the Cierror stan seething though? Mad because it can’t use food stamps for iTunes cards?

    Omg bey thanks god for giving us our queen bey that was god thanks Sam for posting you make my day hate mongers have noting on our bey she is loved by god good people and we her fans for life long live queen bey

  11. BeyIsKing November 2, 2013

    If you’ve seen all of this before then simply scroll past the post. Why click on the post only to come whine on the comments section.

  12. lol November 2, 2013

    she can’t sing this song. sounds like a karaoke singer compared to that aretha franklin understudy aka s****** houston who is only famous because of a covered song. Dolly >>

  13. Realest November 2, 2013

    Some gurls are mad because Bey is one of the few singers out right now who can actually do a Whitney song justice. Because I’m in a good mood right now, I’ll spare you my list of “singers” who couldn’t because of their lack of talent. It’s a pretty lengthy one though…and if you’re here to hate, chances are your fave is probably on it. 😉

  14. Monstarebel November 2, 2013

    Yaaaaas Slayonce.

    • RICHIE_RICH November 2, 2013

      Hey hunty where have you been.

      • Monstarebel November 2, 2013

        Hey gorgeous & I’ve been super busy with school and work sis how are you tho?

      • RICHIE_RICH November 2, 2013

        All is well hun , been super busy myself so I understand that. Glad to know you’re doing well.

  15. Bey Fan November 2, 2013

    So yall just ignore how she slayed Halo at the end ….. LOL. No one is sayin she’s as good as Whitney or Dolly, but if say she sounded a mess, you’re a hater.

    Proud to stan for a woman with talent ….

  16. rih rox((U mad Bro?))(( staning for H20’s previous rant)) November 2, 2013

    So she decided to run off with the song now? Is it because her catalogue is dry , old and repetitive? I thought when she first did it it was a tribute for Whitney when she died.

    Beyawnce is a thief and bandwagonist.

  17. Tash November 2, 2013

    Slay! She sings like 2 lines stop exaggerating. Majority of your favs couldnt even sing 2 lines.

  18. Has November 2, 2013

    Aite kool, how many time does Beyonce have to do these “Tributes” she did the same for Michael :/ get a grip girl and sing ur own beats

  19. JER November 2, 2013

    Too bad BeYAWNce can’t tribute herself.

  20. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) November 2, 2013

    I love the way she connects with her fans! She slayed the bday song. .lol

  21. inkomation November 3, 2013

    Beyonce has alot of style and grace and she is so appropriate of know when and how to do things especially when it come to paying respect and tributes.. anybody remember the song she did for Michael Jackson when he passed…
