Beyonce Performs ‘If I Were A Boy’ On Music Station

Published: Friday 31st Oct 2008 by Sam

As reported, Beyonce is currently in Japan promoting a range of projects, most especially her new single ‘If I Were A Boy’. The 27 year old stopped by the country’s Music Station show today to perform the track. As ever, she nailed it! That said, I’m sure we’ll get more of a stage show with the ‘Single Ladies’ performances. All in all, a great showing.

Randomness: I see her killer band from her ‘B’Day’ era are back, which is a good look.

What do you think of the performance?

    Nothing to jump out of my seat. I feel as though this song is blah and so was the performance. This song is not doing well at all single ladies yes this song no. And i am a huge BEYONCE-STAN but this is not cutting it for me. Maybe she was jet lagged.

    Oh I see the haters are up early. LAughing at people denying she ripped this s***. Beyonce damn sure nailed it. They hating Bee, they hating. keep doing what you do cause its working.

    She nailed it, y’all so used to Rihanna with her non singing self y’all dont know what to do, but I guess that’s your opinion.

    She put some emotion into this performance, and the backup singer did what she was suppose to do, be a backup singer and the band was great also.

    This is how a live performance is suppose to be, Beyonce nailed it and you know it…

    she can sing, i love the power she can, its not SOUL power but POP r&bish power in her voice, but it was okay, nothing great, the song is sooo f***** boring still!

  12. Lewis October 31, 2008

    Absolutely brilliant – I never used to think much of Beyonce but now I can clearly see what a great talent she really is – this song is fantastic and she nailed this performance big style, love it.

    omg i’m over here getting choked up…i have NEVER cried over a song let alone came close to it…bee did that s*** and it wasnt anything iffy about it…it just didnt sound 100 percent like the recorded version…hell i almost always like to hear her sing live over the recorded because she kills everytime….and her backup singer can sang too!! her band is hawt,man if i sound like a stan well….s*** i am!!

    All the haters need to just check in the hospital because this is just the beginning. I see the haters are in full force. Mrs. Knowles-Carter nailed it and for SOME REASON you haters just CAN’T acknowledge that (JEALOUSY is rotteness to the bones ya’ll)…well you all are about to be very angry. Get ready to be on life support is all I can say.

    Even though I find the song very boring; I must say despite some over sang parts, I think Bee did a great job.

    ok haters hate if you like, but beyonce kill the song and her performace was great. Beyonce has got real tatent. I can’t wait to see her performace live for single ladies. Jay-z did the thing and put a ring on it(her). Can’t wait for her movie callac music and hope she gets her oscar this time. Say what you like but the other artist like rhinna don’t have vocal or performace she only has style and and sells s** that’s it, but can’t knock her husltle. Beyonce is back during her.

    f*** the haters.you cant watch a performance like this and say that its bad and then go and watch a rihanna or rihanna performance and say it was good.beyonce is amazing

  28. Does it matter October 31, 2008

    She Frakin killed this performance, and i don’t know why all the haters are acting like this, I guess its true what they say. “YOUR NOT GOOD UNLESS SOMEBODY IS HATIN ON YOU!” and some people are saying that If I were A BOy isn’t doing to good. That song is #3 in america right now makeing a big jump from last weeks spot at 63. So you guys really need to stop with the jealousy. for real!

  29. Nick October 31, 2008

    baby, the HATERS r NEVER PLEASED! — Beyonce & Brandy bth put out sum bomb performances this week/this was GREAT!!!

  30. Laura October 31, 2008

    STOP HATING ? WHAT THE F*** DOES THAT MEAN ? IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, DON’T COMMENT ???
    CRITICISM IS A GOOD THING. THE PROBLEM WITH U GUYS IS THAT THE ONLY KIND OF CRITICISM THAT YOU TOLERATE IS PROMOTION.

    Once again, Beyonce is overdoing, overacting, oversinging : too many growlings, too many vibes – no emotion in her eyes. This performance is simply a CATASTROPHY ! I CANNOT understand why people would say it was a good performance … or i’m wondering what kind of music you guys listen to everyday…

    Yes, she has a good voice. Of course, she can sing but in a performance, interpretation is the key.
    Here, the only thing that Miss Knowles prooves is that she has no talent for it.

    Beyonce doesn’t sound right singing this song. Not saying she sounds bad or anything. It seems she’s trying to fit in somewhere and she’s trying to hard.

    kelly also has some hot tracks as well as for michelle but people say there not that good…
    my ass there not that good they all make good ass music.

  39. Keith October 31, 2008

    You guys are a trip….As a “gay ass man” I think she stomped all the subtlety out of this song. It was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY overdone , she moved to much, damn near turned it into a rock song with a dress on – proving once again class cannot be bought. Bey is talented but she needs to learn some other delivery techniques. Her stans love her precisely because everything is over the top and I suppose that makes for entertainment but not a nuanced performance of (IMO) is a great song. BOO, for this performance and the Single Ladies crap she did during the JayZ show recently. YAAAAAAAAAAY for the handbags…..

  40. Anonymous October 31, 2008

    There’s no sincerity in this performance. Like someone said earlier, her eyes are dead.

  41. Anonymous October 31, 2008

    And, what is up with all the spinning around. It looks like she praticed her facial expressions in the mirror and the over dramatic moves and stuff she is doing.

  42. melissa October 31, 2008

    Yesssssss Beyoncw with the vocals!!!!!!!
    lmao at the haters. Hate on antyhting. Her hair, her outfit, I still don’t understand if you don’t like her, why watch her? No one has yet to answer my question.

  43. Anonymous October 31, 2008

    I thought I would never say this but her performance was boring as hell. At least the video for this song came to life. Maybe she had an off day because as we all know. noone is perfect. Haven’t decided if I will be buying her album I need to hear more songs first.

  44. Donte October 31, 2008

    I didn’t think it could get any better than the recorded version. But I should have known that Beyonce would outdo herself again. She always tops herself. Her live performances are always better than the record. And the recordings are great so that says alot to top yourself live because alot of singers today are studio singers. I don’t want to start any trouble but the main ones right now are Hannah Montana and Rihanna. Only a few artists can sing live. Beyonce of course is one of them. Mariah Carey needs her “Emancipation of Mimi” peformances back I loved her live in that time but her new stuff isn’t cutting it. Beyonce is back and you can tell she’s ready to release Sasha Fierce/Beyonce.!

    Beyonce this… Beyonce that…

    I like Beyonce but this blog with “everything Beyonce” is just getting boring… All we see here is Beyonce…, Beyonce…, Beyonce…, Solange…, Beyonce again… And somebody else here and there… Just to fill it up between all those Beyonces…

    Maybe it should officially be renamed as “The Beyonce Blog”… I’m not a hater… I really like Beyonce back from Destiny’s Child but… I know that’s a promotion for her new album but still…

    Way too much Beyonce…
    Beyonce…
    Beyonce…

    You get it? :))

  50. moden November 1, 2008

    why all the haters gotta say that they aint hating right after they say beyonce has no talent and cant sing and it overrated and all that s***. If you really wasnt hatin u should need to say it. It it an opinion if u say she cant sing say I dont like her voice or the way she sings, its inaccurate to say she cant sing when u do damn well she can, you just dont like her voice(which i should state is just envy)

  51. Anonymous November 1, 2008

    Why does someone have to envy bey if it is mentioned that she cannot sing. Someone saying that she cannot sing is just an opinion. No need to feel like you have to correct someone’s opinion. It is just an opinion and one opinion is no more relevant than the next.

  52. Jai November 1, 2008

    I just love Bee’s stage presence and her live vocals are AMAZING! Her band is amazing as well! I can’t wait for her to go on tour again!

  53. Anonymous November 2, 2008

    Beyonce has the best talent in her genre. No one can touch her. However, this performance was not great. I would have liked her to stand somberly still and not start jumping around. It did not feel right. In addition, her current singles are not up to par – even though the sales will go through the roof anyway. Beyonce is like the Clinton machine – unstoppable, but not real.

    I think she should concentrate on perfecting her acting skills, and then combine it with her musical talent and make movies like Julie Andrews – Mary Poppings, Sound of Music, maybe even Cinderella’s mother.

    OMG SHE LOOKS SO FIT. shee is finneeeee

  55. Donte November 2, 2008

    Just for everyone who says this song will not be a hit. It is already number 3 on the Hot 100 Billboard Chart. Single Ladies is number 54 i thinik.

  56. YaChi November 2, 2008

    I’m not a fan, stan or hater, but I am bias. I love the original by BC Jeans and I think that Beyonce just butchers the song. I felt the CD version was aight, but the video was on point. Her live interpretation of this song is horrible and what was up with the reverb?!?!?!

    It’s a rock song and it is an emotional song so you have to add the highs and lowes appropriately. All the adilib she was doing and repeating certain phrases was not needed. It’s taking away from the emotional content of the song. The words are powerful enough on their own. She doesn’t need all that extra “stuff.”

    Perfect example of what I’m talking about is Luther Vandross. Most of his hits were written by someone else, “Superstar”, “House is not a Home”, just to name a few.

    He NEVER over sang on the album or in concert. His voice is way better than Beyonce’s, but the point is less is more.

    Okay, let the negativity and name calling began…….

    I Love Beyonce great performer, singing is okay will I buy her cd dont think so dont wait until your album come out to admit your married and ask people to buy your cd because you made songs about you and your husband you didnt want your fans to know your business then but now you want them to pay to know your business everyone need to wake up to see people will do anything just to get your money
