‘Just Stand Up’ Performed Live!

Published: Friday 5th Sep 2008 by Sam
The star-studded female ensemble behind ‘Just Stand Up’ performed the song literally minutes ago on a Stand Up To Cancer special, which is airing on a variety of US channels as I type. Peep the much anticipated performance below:

Awesome performance! Though not flawless (I’ll leave the nitpicking to you guys lol), it was still amazing to see all on stage together.

What do you think of the performance?

    Okayyyyyy . . . It was interesting to say the least. I saw it live. I am a true Beyonce fan, but what was up with her hair? Miley and Rhianna’s verse was questionable . . . But it was for a great cause so go ladies!!!

    LIked the performnace I wish they would have let them perform the whole son instead of chop it up like they did, but they probably did that because it was a hour show. I loved when Beyonce said you nedd to know! and she put that fire to it, i also like marys part. But what happened to Mariah seemed like she was struggling to hit her notes.

  7. Xtian September 5, 2008

    OMG that was amazing

    loving bee’s new do

  8. Mrs. White September 5, 2008

    Beyonce Looked a HOT MESS!! What in the world has she gone and done to her hair? I am a die hard beyonce fan, but I really hate that everytime she “comes back” she has to do so with lighter longer locks! As for the performance…it was just like the song: OK and definitely nothing spectacular!

  9. Zubi September 5, 2008

    Oh u BEYONCE h8rs… JUST SHUT UP!
    SHE USED THAT WIG COS SHE JUST FINISHED PERFORMING “AT LAST”- THE ETTA JAMES SONG FORM HER NEW MOVIE “CADILLAC RECORDS”!
    STILL LOOKED GREAT ON HER!
    PERIOD!
    RIHANNA SOUNDED GREAT 2!

  10. villiersz September 5, 2008

    I thought the performance was great for the most part, mariah carey was lookin’ and soundin’ lyke she was in sum serious pain… Havin’ Nick Cannon give you dat good JUKE right b4 a performance is not gunna help u hit dem notes… It’s just gunna make you sore.

    I really loved it, if im honest though there were some music artists who really didint need to be there….mary j sounded awful, i dont know who the hell ever told her she could sing and ad lib over a track she should leave that too mariah leona and beyonce (who can actually hold a tune and hit the notes on key) mary J sounded a hot, hot mess !!!

  12. Zubi September 5, 2008

    HOLD UP!
    STOP THE PRESS!

    beyonce what the hell was the piece of yellow piece of sick on your hair. is j-z styling two ladies, or is it just me? or did you just want to stand out from all the other maidens with long locks. it kinda suits her! loved mary j she was the best within allof them. its a fact deal with it.

    TO THE PERSON WHO SAID NICOLE DIDN’T SING. haha she did (wasnt all that but was ok) i guess Nicole filled in for Sheryl Crow. who originally sings the part she filled. haha i was wondering that too. Yeah i’m also wondering why they skipped ciara’s part. its not even that long so why skip it?? all in all its nice to see all of em there to support the cause. Luckily that hair do Beyonce was sportin was only a wig. haha it did remind me of Rihanna’s alien lesbian hair do (although she pulls it off very nicely looks good on her.)

    Damn, I missed the Untile The End Of Time Performance. Can anyone please post it?

    Thats just a wig Bey had on when she performed “AS ETTA JAMES”. She also performed with Justin Timberlake with her regular hair.

    i loved the performance well all of it except for Miley she ruined it for me also …

  41. Yinka September 5, 2008

    Ok being from the UK i must say im extremely proud of LEONA Lewis SHE was dead ON POINT!!! HOWEVER..Miley Cyrus, Fergie, MC, Nicole were OFF KEY TO THE MAXIMUM…was it me or didnt any1 notice tried to swing in some jamaica twang into her last part in the song…Sorry buy Beyonce’s hair was different and unexpected which is why i love it.

    All in all it was a GREAT performance but theres just too many Diva’s on there, however MJB Stood out the most to me.

  42. jdo September 5, 2008

    *I love how Mariah brought her own mic…that’s my MiMi…haha.

    *Why the hell was Miley singing?! Or if that is what you would call it.

    *Natasha’s white pants was all I can look at.

    *Poor Ciara barely got any air time.

    *Fergie…ummmm….yeah.

    *Overall a good performance…ugh, I really hate Miley’s part.

  43. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    I noticed in the second chorus Leona was trying to lead and u can hear her ad libs and notes in the background

  44. Anonymous September 5, 2008

    **********************************************

    So it wasn’t a bad performance.
    BUT they should have shot to everyone during their designated parts. Poor Ciara got passed up by meaning she didn’t have any camera time, AND she only had one line.

    Nicole Scherzinger didn’t do any justice. Shoulda gave her part to somebody already in the song since Sheryl, Melissa Etheridge and LeAnn Rimes couldn’t attend.
    It REALLY sounded like Miley was singing over alot of Rihanna’s part, you know her dad told her to do so too. She didn’t fit in age wise at all. Prob. added her to bring i nDisney fans… I guess.
    Ashanti did great. She’s one that I really wanted to see. Wish she did the parts they gave Nicole S.
    I’m glad they did this though it really shows female singers in a unity that many don’t believe is around.
    Great JOB
    CAN’T WAITTTTTTT 4 a video, please I hope they do one!

    -K.

    u guys are missing the point
    it wasnt about anyone’s hair
    it was about their performance and what the song stood for
    it was for a good cause
    so therefore i wont comment on it that much
    i think fergie looked a hot mess as usual
    miley and rihana’s part was okay, i think their collabo did really work out
    it kind a felt akward
    ashanti did sound too good
    but everyone did look good and looked like they were a team on the project

    I enjoyed the performance! I just didn't like Miley but I guest they had to get someone to be in sync with Rihanna who sounded Great! I mean Ashanti and Keyshia should have had bigger parts because they sounded really good with their parts. Overall it was a good look for R&B period

  79. one more credit… September 6, 2008

    Let me point out that I love the song as a whole, but:

    Miley and Keyshia CANNOT sing and Rihanna tore her parts up, Leona was a beast, Natasha should have left that strained high note at home, Mariah sounded scratchy until her whistle notes (were those pre-recorded?), and Beyonce’s hair was indeed in need of Jesus…

  80. Anonymous September 6, 2008

    For all the people that are saying Beyonce performed “until the end of time” with Justin, you’re wrong. She did not perform that. She performed “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing” by Marvin Gaye. Get it right!!

    To the people who keep saying that Beyonce started the song, your wrong… dead wrong. You know when stans are here when they try to say that Beyonce start ish up, I love B but lets get real here… Ashanti started up the song and if you need proof, I’ll show you a link where she actually started the song off. And Ashanti can sang.. a whole lot better than Miley, Rihanna, Keyshia and Ciara. The person who stole the show was Mary J B, that’s cause she’s the Queen and no one can take her place, not even Mariah S****.

  83. MrRihannaFenty September 7, 2008

    Ok seriously, I love Beyonce. I have been a fan since no, no, no. Usually, I never complain about anything that she does or wear, however that wig has got to go!!! Wearing it for a movie is one thing, but on stage to perform a song with no relevance to the movie is another; so since it’s a wig she should take that s*it off until she is on the set.
