Beyonce Performs ‘Single Ladies’ Live! (Well…Kinda)

Published: Wednesday 29th Oct 2008 by Sam

During hubby Jay-Z’s set at Power 105.1 show last night at New Jersey’s IZOD Center, Beyonce made a surprise appearance – giving short performance of her hotter than hot new release ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)’. Clad in all black and backed by two dancers (not the one’s from the video unfortunately), Ms. Knowles definitely wet my appetite for the inevitable barrage of live performance we’ll be seeing from her over the next few months. Good stuff.

What do you think of the performance?

    ok number 1, there was NOTHING live about that performance.

    number 2, this song sux. it is the same damn thing as get me bodied but with different lyrics.

    number 3, she is lucky she can take Hov for half so she can continue to put out trash like this and the gays will eat it up so she can supplement her allowance from Hov.

    there is nothing innovative or new or fresh about any of this stuff she is puttin out

    **side note: why does it look like she is right back in destinys child with her takin center stage and shovin the 2 in the back to dance behind her while she stands in front and continues to whip her weave around. she needs a new gimmick. this is gettin tired.

    but im sure she can take a @^#& on the stage and sam would think it is the hottest thing ever

    She didn’t even have to sing…her presence alone was ridiculous…she ripped the dancing…FETUS FACE RIHANNA has nothing on BEY!!! Don’t hate on her give credit when credit is due. Rihanna will NEVER get a reaction like that!

    Sorry that was so low budget playing songs from the I pod at a sold out show. I thought power 1051 said he would be performing with a live band? I have to admit Bee is good at what she does from a performer stand point. She is good at another thing stealing others songs passing them as her own. As for that showing quite sure the crowd ate it up but I saw nothing special but typical Bee. Nothing new or ground breaking about the dance routine or song. Swizz Beatz should be getting a check because this is what I call a weak ass version of Get Me Bodied.

    ^^^^^^Jay did perform with a live band for majority of his set. If you notice he was standing behind the DJ Booth or whatever you wanna call it…he did not do the entire show there…not even half of the show was done ther…. After he performed Jockin Jay-Z…he pretended to leave but came back and he said he has hits for days…which he does….sooooo he was just randomly selecting tracks on the laptop….everyone at the IZOD center went crazy!!! It was amazing.
    —————————————————-
    as for Bey stealing songs…its not stealing if you paid for them…she has the permission to use if I were a Boy and the original artist is getting paid so if she isn't complaining why is anyone else
    —————————————————
    As far as new and ground breaking about her routine…that is pure technique…Street Jazz and J-Setting is not easy..you need to be trained and Beyonce KILLS IT!!! No one in R&B right now is as versatile with their dancing but Beyonce sooooooo ppl need to follow her lead because Rihanna is just pure whack and Ciara (I love her too) but I'm tired of the backbend matrix move…I mean do something else for a change) So we need to give credit where credit is due.
    —————————————————-
    I KNOW I JUST WENT IN LIKE I KNOW JAY AND BEY…LOL…BUT I LOVE THEM!!!! They are truly talented!

    The girls performance game is off the Richter . . . say what you will about Beyonce, but she has an amazing voice, she’s a hell of a dancer and she has major stage presence. Her concerts sell out and she never disappoints live. Even when she fell down the stairs, she got up and danced her ass off like she didn’t just bust her s*** . . . that’s what you call an entertainer. Flaws and All . . . . Sasha is truly Fierce!!!!

  35. melissa October 30, 2008

    Speak the truth MzJGaines!!!!!!!!

  36. LadyK1984 October 30, 2008
