    I have to admit, i was kind of disappointed in Beyoncé’s vocals. She usually has power in her voice, but she sang that song so flat.

  2. Hadley February 19, 2014

    I loved it, simplistic and elegant and she looks amazing.

  3. iamdiego February 19, 2014

  16. chris b February 19, 2014

    She looks Wonderful. I LOVE XO.
    BEYONCÉ IS THE BEST

  17. Beyawnceeeeezzzzzz February 19, 2014

    Another generic performance by the most overrated singer…

  18. Molly February 19, 2014

    Im not even hating and if your a real Beyonce fan you can admit her vocals so far this era hasn’t been the best and her performances have been lackluster she looked beautiful but i wasn’t entertained.

  19. chris February 19, 2014

    Beyoncé looks amazing. She is the best. I love you XO

  20. Slay_hive February 19, 2014

    She did great as USUAL! Not what i wanted her to perform but anways all of the b****** hiding behind troll accounts know there faves can’t do any better than the queen. Hang it UP!!

  21. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) February 19, 2014

    What’s with her and sparkly glitter outfits? So dated and that blonde give it a rest you aren’t a blonde. Embrace your natural colour for God sakes.

    Typical, boring and predictable.

    >>>Exits<<<

    Horrible so may I add.

    Ciao folks.

  22. Slayiah Carey February 19, 2014

    She sounds flat due to lack of cocaine…. 🙁

  23. Riri 4 Eva February 19, 2014

    she is looking outdated…like Harlem beauty queen from hell…

    😆

  24. QUEEN OF BUYING GRAMMYS February 19, 2014

    WOW what a basic performance.

  25. Unbiased February 19, 2014

    People will always find something to complain about. I thought she did a fantastic job, “XO” is not a song that needs big time vocals. I loved the arrangement of the song, she sounded great vocally and she dedicated to the song to her fans. Also, she looked breathtaking. It’s funny to see people who stan for individuals who are vocal disasters try to shade.

  26. James February 19, 2014

    Beyonce fans are not fans of actually talent if they were they would obviously see that she was flat in this performance and instead of giving a real critique they just kiss ass.

  27. Blue Monkey’s Mother February 19, 2014

    Booooooorrrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnnnggggggggggg !!!!

  28. edisondreams February 19, 2014

    No bueno -____- i dont know whats going on with Beyonce, but something aint right in the water. Normally Bey puts on a show, but these last two live performances were not up to par. Ima need Beyonce to get it together before the bet awards. I wanted to punch somebody in uthe face half way thru her performance, thats how boring it was. This is not tbe beyonce i ws expecting to see tonight. I was waiting for partition place. ^=^ instead she just stood in one place the whole time like she did at the grammys. Another performance like this and ima have to turn in my Stan card cuz this s*** aint right.

    Sidenote – Where is Mathew Knowles when you need him…

  29. Slay_hive February 19, 2014

    Ya’ll don’t seem to be this opinionated when your faves have bad performances, and they HAVE PLENTY! Loool

    Bey did great as she always does! 😀

  30. Rosie February 19, 2014

    Screaming at Rihfund stans coming for any Beyoncé performance. What’s next, the S****** and irrelevant-local-F-list-R&B-singer-from-Atlanta stans? Take several.

  31. Stephy Tha Lambily February 19, 2014

    Beyonce vocals are changing… I wonder how she will sound after 40+ years old with another child… Her voice sounds like she lost about 2 octives! Her B’Day voice was the best!

    Anyways, Whitney Houston truely was the greatest vocalist of our lifetime.

  32. Kendall February 19, 2014

    It was simple and classy what I like to see from someone like her!

  33. Dem lessors February 19, 2014

    She should’ve done a stripped back version of the song. It didn’t suit the staging or the way she was dressed. I even prefer Rihanna’s performance a couple years back.

  34. beyonce f***** barak obama February 19, 2014

    She looms really beautiful and i like the song but that performance wad kinda flat and boring.

  35. Zzzzzzz February 19, 2014

    Flat vocal…….not her best !!!!!

    🙁

  36. Jdek February 19, 2014

    Kii RETIRE t*****! Bored as f*** with her basic reycled preformances. *waits. For the bitter hive+ phaggots to denying she’s not the same and needs to retire her fat flopping ass*kiiii NEXT PREFORMER PLZ! Kiii snooze fest

  37. MARIAH REMAINS UNBOTHERED February 19, 2014

    SHE DIDN’T NAIL IT….SORRY. ANOTHER FORGETTABLE PERFORMANCE !!!!

  38. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    A Lana Del Rey Stan coming for Mariah though? Lol. That’s like a Kim Kardashian Stan coming for Kate Middleton. I’ll leave it @ that.

    Terrible performance from B*****. #TryAgain

  39. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    A Lana Del Rey Stan coming for Mariah though? Lol. That’s like a Kim Kardashian Stan coming for Kate Middleton. I’ll leave it @ that.
    Terrible performance from B*****. #TryAgain

  40. Bck2Blk February 19, 2014

    Not Impressed, it needed more rehearsal…sucks becasue this is my fave track on the album

  41. Stephy Tha Lambily February 19, 2014

    Beyonce does not need to birth another child. Its gonna take away another octive on her vocal chords!

    Her voice has sounded alot different since giving birth. Thats why she has started lipping alot during the Mrs Carter Show Tour & at the Grammy Awards.

    But at the age of 32 with a child & has been on tour for an entire year. She still sounds great. Remember folks Beyonce’s vocals are not basic like Rihanna’s…

  42. RoyalKev February 19, 2014

    It never fails, people still expecting Bey to do what their favs aren’t capable of! I thought Bey did a great job, the vocals were great (especially at the end)! This kind of performance is all that XO requires.

  43. Bey Fan February 19, 2014

    Ummm she wasn’t flat at all….. she actually sounded really good on this song. I love her lower register. Not what i wanted her to perform. But im very pleased.

    She looked great. Sounded good. And

  44. Jdek February 19, 2014

    Her desperation to please the audience is so obvious she learned shaking her cellulite and stank raggedy cooch on stage wasn’t what the public wanted to see from her so now she’s doing this. Giving the same boring basic performance kiii. Rather of seen miley TRY to perform at least I would be entertained at her nonsense.

  45. Rosie February 19, 2014

    Even the Cierror stans can drag Mooriah this week. Not even I’m Out (Of The Charts) fell off as bad as You’re A Flop (Eternal).

  46. Unbiased February 19, 2014

    I’m a real Bey fan and not stan. Her voice sounded better than the recording, have you heard XO it’s not a big vocal song. Also, she has been practicin non-stop for her world tour that starts tomorrow. I’m sure her voice is very tired, but i’m glad she did the performance anyways, because she didn’t have to. This woman is not a damn robot, she told ya’ll things will not be perfect this era. She recieved a standing O, so she must be did something right.

  47. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    Mariah sold more records than Beyonce, Lama, and Ciara combined so you can remain seething.

  48. Kendall February 19, 2014

    The song in itself is a very monotonous tone… Her vocals were fine.

  49. Bey Fan February 19, 2014

    I dont think people know what it means to be flat….

    Beyonce has never been flat or sharp…or outta key. If you think her vocals are “bland”…we’ll thats your opinion. But she was not at all flat. And I love her lower register. Her voice has matured in my opinion. And has gotten better every era.

  50. James February 19, 2014

    You can tell her voice is decreasing

  51. Rosie February 19, 2014

    Another butch clinging to the past, like all other has-been stans do.
    Doesn’t change the fact that Moo can’t even release an album even with 26 lead singles hyped up to the maximum by her team.

  52. Jdek February 19, 2014

    *snores* … *snores louder*

  53. Metzo February 19, 2014

    She was really nervous, but still sang the s*** out the song. And she looked flawless as always.

  54. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    No shade from me at all but I can see she’s going for a simplistic approach this era. No wind machines, ass shaking or seizures. I can dig it. Cute performance 😉

  55. danny b February 19, 2014

    The lighting and arrangement was f****** everything.

  56. Any February 19, 2014

    I love bey but I was expecting a performance the full works she aint been on the Brits for like 10yrs, vocals wernt great but was still good vocal, I’m seeing her on Sunday and ino she will bring it then bcus she will have the right staging the lights, the dancers the beyonce we know and love

  57. nAVY nICK February 19, 2014

    This song is under-rated! SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SONG-should def be HOT 100 material…AMAZING BEYONCE!

  58. Dirty laundry February 19, 2014

    I’ve heard better vocals from Gaga and Adele do better Bey

  59. Benji February 19, 2014

    She looked FANTASTIC. But I think shes kinda complacent with these performances though because her album is SLAYING numbers wise. Shes a lil too relaxed. Her vocals were not flat though people hush thats the way the song is.

    People are just not used to her singing songs like the record (like rihanna and others fo all the time). Because she usually ad libs a lot.

  60. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    Death at “seizures”

    Lol I can’t….

  61. JOHNVIDAL February 19, 2014

    My faves have flat perofrmances too so this is not about shading Beyonce. But everybody has to admit Beyonce sounded flat in this one. In fact, she often sounds flat when she performs live vocals. Gaga sounded better in her performance for Jimmy Fallon last night for example.
    Like someone has already said, people like Whitney Houston was really on another level, soooooooooo superior to all this. If this is supposed to be the best vocals we can get from young superstars nowadays… And XO is my fave track on her album btw (an album that is a little bit overrated imo).

  62. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    Lmaoooooo not a Lazy Rowland stan talking about vocals kii

  63. Stephy Tha Lambily February 19, 2014

    Rose, you stan for a bitchh that will NEVER reach Mariahs, Rihannas or Beyonces hieght so you need to shut all the way up.

    Mariah Carey catologue slays all of your favs & her sales are her recipts. As, for her current flopping-ness well thats Mimi’s problem but a woman like Mariah can flop all she wants to because she has 500+ million $’s to fall back on.

    Prince has not had a successful single or album since 1992 but dont nobody call him a flop.

    Bye Ho!

  64. Benji February 19, 2014

    @The Boy Toy thats true actually. This whole era for her is about doing the LEAST and just letting her album speak. Never thought of it like that.

  65. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    How is that clinging to the past? She sold over 200 million records from 1990 – 2014. Her sales are increasing each year. Still doesn’t change the fact the sold more than your fave and has made far more impact.

  66. Dirty laundry February 19, 2014

    I think Gaga is becoming vocally better than Beyonce. @John shes never flat

  67. Skyfall February 19, 2014

    I liked the performance it was nice clean and simple. She wasn’t being extra
    And doing 59 million runs and trying to belt at the top of her lungs. She sounded nice
    Give props when do and stfu especially when your fav sounds like s***

  68. Slay_hive February 19, 2014

    Stephy go take your psych meds b****. Beyonce’s voice is fine and she sounded exactly like the record. I’m sure you heard the song, it doesn’t require her to belt and “sang”

    You are so salty that the Hives drags your fickle pea brain ass! You’ll have a different opinion tomorrow. #nutcase

  69. BeyVey February 19, 2014

    If she puts on an Edgy exciting show, people say she’s over the top, if she sings a beautiful ballad with her amazing vocals, people say It’s boring. Everything she does, people, i MEAN HATERS will find excuses to discredit her because she’s killing ya’ll faves careers.
    Wanna talk about boring? Katy’s performance was BORing, with her lame ass vocals..

  70. Rosie February 19, 2014

    And most of those records sold were before 2006.

    Anyways, you all want to call Beyoncé’s performance bad, look at Katy’s. A Kids Choice Awards mess.

  71. Dirty laundry February 19, 2014

    But Kelly vocals are better then Rihannas im sure everyone would agree

  72. beyonce f***** barak obama February 19, 2014

    @Stephy shut yo whoring ass up f***. Queen Rih has great vocals, she maybe not singing that great while dancing like beyonce but she gave great live vocals for songs such as diamonds and stay, plus her voice is uniqe unlike beyonce and your fave (?) Mooriah whice slunds like a f***** up wale while twirling her damn finget ad if she sings her heart out.#bye

  73. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    @Stephy

    Thank You. I agree for once.

  74. beyonce f***** barak obama February 19, 2014

    @Dirty laundry Who??????

  75. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    Girl bye. Kelly’s shaky scary vocals are nothing to write home about. She sounds her best in harmony BEHIND Beyonce lmao. She will never stand on her own two feet with her flop ass.

  76. Everyones a Critic with No Credentials February 19, 2014

    It wasn’t flat. She just didn’t do loads of runs and ad libs. The song is kinda flat sounding. I liked the performance actually.

  77. pat February 19, 2014

    i’m not used to seeing he perform with that nervous vocal energy a la kelly, tamar, but it was pretty good i guess

  78. Dirty laundry February 19, 2014

    Rihanna sounds her best when hiding behind a backing track

  79. Slay_hive February 19, 2014

    I’m really waiting on this time machine invention. So the lames can travel back to 1990 and be happy!

    Slayriah, girl, we know how many albums Mariah has sold. You and that lunatic stephy remind us everyday. WE DON’T CARE! THE GP DON’T CARE EITHER *looks @ itunes* GOODBYE

  80. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    Wow she’s only 32 and she’s already struggling to sing a simple song like XO… Mariah must have had the stamina to sing the way she did up to her late 30s with vocal nodules…

  81. Dirty laundry February 19, 2014

    Pat stfu

  82. Everyones a Critic with No Credentials February 19, 2014

    I realized she can’t win. Its clear she is taking a simple approach this era. Performances included. She gave a stripped back version of the song, it becomes boring. If she chose to be more extravagent they would have said it was OTT.

  83. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    **the stamina of a God** is what I meant.

  84. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    Stephy slayed me with that just now though. Celine flopped, Madonna flopped, and Janet flopped but all the h*** stay worried about Mariah Carey’s freakin iTunes position. Seriously?

    Lol, Lana can’t even get a #1 single and death @ her fans bragging about that shitty album selling 5 million worldwide when Mariah has sold more than that in the US alone.

  85. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    A backing track on her $145m tour? When is Lazy gon do it? *plays her Diamonds AMA performance* #ICON

  86. MC!!! February 19, 2014

    i wish she would’ve sang it the original way instead of making it an instrumental ballad like halo the drums made that song to be honest but her dress look nice…and by the way you’re mine debut at 88 on the hot 100 without radio airplay and its #21 in spain

  87. Everyones a Critic with No Credentials February 19, 2014

    But Beyonces tone has got much deeper since she had a baby i’ve noticed. The same happened to Alicia Keys.

  88. beyonce f***** barak obama February 19, 2014

    Mariah can put her ass back to nick’s c*** cause aint nobody got time for her washed up fattttt assss. Beyonce and and Rihanna are the real queens in this industry now , beyonce farting 》》》》》》 flop mine (fuckternal)

  89. Skyfall February 19, 2014

    Beyonce and Bruno Mars will have the best performances and most talk about
    Performances of the night PERIOD. Katy can’t sing so she’s out vocally but her visuals and
    Stage presence is good but it’s never been anything amazing. Lorde is a good singer but
    Her performances never stay with the mind. And who else is performing ???

  90. Mileys movement February 19, 2014

    @CommonSense but you stan for Mariah tho

  91. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    @Slay_Hive

    Lool. I wasn’t even talking to you though so I don’t why your catching feelings. #StepAside

  92. Mileys movement February 19, 2014

    Didn’t Mariahs vocal struggles begin in 2002.

  93. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Mileys Movement And I brought her up in my post. Maybe read all of it?

  94. iconic cici February 19, 2014

    For once i agree with. @Stephy Beyonce vocals are on the decline forreals Lmao

  95. Rosie February 19, 2014

    Kii cling to the past AGAIN.
    Anyways has TAOLG been pushed back again? They might as well since it’s less single is about to fall out of the top 500.

  96. Cindy February 19, 2014

    Some people don’t know vocals. There was nothing flat about Beyonce’s vocals. @John I see you are trying to through shade because Gaga is currently flopping down the yellow brick road, but don’t do it. Majority of Bey’s vocals flat? You have to be kidding me. She sounds just like the recording. It’s not a big ballad song. This album is not filled with big ballads, you want that go listen to “4”.

  97. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Mileys Movement I guess you could probably say that yes. Her consistency dropped around the age of 30 but she had a vocal comeback from 2003-2006.

  98. fatusankoh February 19, 2014

    Amazing performance bey sound good looking beautiful hatters are mad bey can do no wrong she slay anytime their favorite cannot do what bey do the best long live queen bey

  99. Lovebird February 19, 2014

    I thought Mariah’s pretending to sing whilst wagging her finger would be the only performances to put me to sleep but this put me right into a comma.

    Boredom central; always count on Beyonce’ to deliver a lifeless soulless vocal “performance” yawn.

    The spin cycle on my washing machine is more entertaining than this rubbish.

  100. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Rosie Why are you so bitter about Mariah’s past sales? Is it because you know Lana won’t ever come anywhere near them? Or is it because you know that even with the fraction of a voice she has left, Mariah still outsings Lana any day of the week.

  101. Slay_hive February 19, 2014

    You dont have to be talking to me. You are in a Beyonce post complaining and talking about Mariah like anyone gives AF!

    You should be spending your time handing out “You’re Flopping” flyers to the GP, to boost that itunes position. 😉 Don’t worry about the Queen and her CURRENT slayage!

  102. iconic cici February 19, 2014

    Everyone and they mama is a better singer then Lana tho.

  103. beyonce f***** barak obama February 19, 2014

    Yasssss i

    lost my cow moo moo from my farm last week and today i saw her on t.v and she was singing some song called yoir mine. I am so happy i found my cow !!!

  104. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Lovebird Watching Rihanna attempt to move that pancake ass of hers while lipping to a song a person with a speech disorder could sing flawlessly is more entertaining right?

  105. Molly February 19, 2014

    “Boredom central; always count on Beyonce’ to deliver a lifeless soulless vocal “performance” yawn.”

    I Agree the performance was very lackluster.

  106. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    The art of Letting go will be released whenever the f*** Mariah wants to release. Mariah always pushes back her albums. She’s a perfectionist. She won’t just put out anything she isn’t comfortable with.

  107. Stephy Tha Lambily February 19, 2014

    Im not crazy nor insane! Im simple honest!

    Beyonce vocals has been alot different since she gave birth. Im not saying she cannot sing but she cannot produce notes over G#5 anymore.

    Overall, her voice does sound much more relaxed & mature the older she gets. But her mezzo-surprano voice is gone.

    Her vocals during the B’Day era was the best. She was able to hit very high notes without forcing like she does now. She will lose more octives once she has another child.

    Beyonce is now an alto instead of a mezzo. She is will damage her vocals singing in a high chest voice with a Alto tone. She is no longer a mezzo.

    Mariah Carey was a mezzo-surprano but was born with vocal nodules which lead her to her vocal decline. If it was not for Mimis NODULES (which allowed her to hit C7) she would still beable to sing.

  108. Molly February 19, 2014

    @CommonSense Yes you better stay and drag the girls.

  109. Lovebird February 19, 2014

    Boring lifeless performance with flat lifeless vocals. How many people in Great Britain did she put to sleep?

    Thank god she didn’t put on one of her stripper shows; I guess she does have a conscious seeing that she saved the public from the horror of seeing her run down beaten vag; the same horror she inflicted on 25 million people at the Grammy’s when she decided to open her legs for them ewwwww.

  110. beyonce f***** barak obama February 19, 2014

    CUMoon sensr bixch shut up rihannaaa 》》》》 you and yo fave

  111. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Slay_Hive I’m not worried about your Queen’s current slayage. I worry about her future slayage if she’s already struggling with such simple songs. Your Queen doesn’t even have vocal nodules or anything.
    This performance was not what one expects from a singer as hyped as Beyonce.

  112. Molly February 19, 2014

    @Stephy dont explain yourself to these bums her vocals are fading end of story

  113. Slay_hive February 19, 2014

    “Boredom central; Always count on Beyonce’ to deliver a lifeless souless vocal performance”

    BUT you stan for Rihanna tho! Isn’t what you go in for? Horrible performances with no soul or vocal ability kii

    You shade yourself hun! #BIRDBRAIN kii

  114. Kisses Down Low February 19, 2014

    @Skyfall agreed. Bruno and Beyonce were the best.

  115. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    @Common Sense yet that clip of Rih whining/twerking her “pancake ass” while performing You Da One probably got more views than You’re Mine. Goodbye.

  116. Kisses Down Low February 19, 2014

    Ciara and Rihanna stans coming for vocals. IM SCREAMING.

  117. Lovebird February 19, 2014

    The most entertaining part of this performance for those who were awake to see was seeing that ugly dress fighting for dear life to keep the fat deposit folds from squeezing out.

    I’ve never seen a dress fight with body fat to this level before, absolutely hilarious.

    Fire your stylist Bey.

  118. beyonce f***** barak obama February 19, 2014

    @Stephy h** stop acting like u know shittt bout music you dumb dikee . Off you go to the mad house with your friend amanda bynes.

  119. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    @Charts Down Low you should be screaming at your faves pitiful sales, tbh. 😉

  120. Kisses Down Low February 19, 2014

    Molly stays up Lovebirds A$$ tho. Didn’t you get the memo when the Hive dragged u in the other post.

  121. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    @Slay_Hive

    Why would I waste my time handing out flyers to random people when I have assignments and s*** to study for? lol I’m not pressed about flipping iTunes positions. You people can keep rushing, refreshing, and re-checking to see Mariah’s position while I simply don’t give a f***.

    Again, I wasn’t talking to you. I was talking to that bitter Lana fan who came for Mariah.

  122. Slay_hive February 19, 2014

    @common sense

    But you are reaching though. Beyonce’s vocals were fine. She wasnt singing love on top or halo. She will be fine. She takes care of her voice unlike other fading divas.

    But i’ll let you reach and dwelve in your delusion! kii BYE

  123. Lovebird February 19, 2014

    I guess the last surprise we got from the s** merchant is the way she dropped the album because everything ever since has been predictable from the repetitive 1,2 step to the flat vocal struggles and lip syncing.

    I now see why she has decided to be a ho.

  124. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    @Stephy singing isn’t always about HIGH NOTES! That’s where people get that s*** twisted.

  130. Hadley February 19, 2014

    There are no G5 notes in the song. How can you tell if she can hit it anymore or not. I agree her voice has CHANGED since she gave birth but its not decreasing.

    Her vocals are fine. She is singing XO, not listen or whatever.

  131. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @The Boy Toy And videos of dogs dragging their asses on the carpet also get millions of views. Doesn’t make them quality videos or worth watching for that matter.

  133. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    A video of a dog dragging his ass is much more entertaining than You’re Mine. I’m glad you know it! Sorry Slayriah I still love you 😉

  134. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Slay_Hive Keep telling yourself that. You may ignore the trembling in her voice all throughout the beginning, but it wasn’t lost on me. Beyonce’s vocal decline has begun, and it’s to be expected as she has now given birth. Children drain their mother’s spark.

  135. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    WTF does Rihanna know about high notes?

  136. Kisses Down Low February 19, 2014

    But you stan for Ciara, even Rihanna is vocally superior to her.

  137. Lovebird February 19, 2014

    At this point, Beyonce’s smoke and mirrors are fading faster than Mariah’s flop single (that nobody remembers) on the Hot 100.

  138. Rosie February 19, 2014

    LMAO not the “She can release it whenever she wants!!” excuse. He had the album ready since 2012 and still didn’t go forward just because all 292 of her “lead” singles flopped to hell and back. Not even #Ugly, her first hit in years, stopped her from pushing it back. But whatever, once again, stay clinging to Moo receipts and sales from Reconstruction-era America.

  139. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    @Boy Toy

    I really like you too… But these Stans are gonna make me erupt.

  140. The Boy Toy February 19, 2014

    Rihanna doesn’t have to know anything about hitting high notes to sell. 😉 She is an alto, so she can’t hit very high notes anyway (and neither can Mariah). 😉 Rihanna knows how to work with what she has. Thanks for your concern.

    Did someone just say Mariah can’t hit high notes?!?!?!?! LMFAOOOO! That’s the delusion of the millennium. Which other B***** can hit high notes like Mariah?

    Not B*****
    Not Christina
    Not Ariana
    Not Leona
    CLEARLY NOT Rihanna

    In conclusion, Mariah is superior to Lana and the argument ends there.

    @Slay_Hive I have the album. The small, but noticeable struggle was there. Mariah’s struggle wasn’t anything major at the start either.

    And how am I bitter? I never came in and defended ‘You’re Mine,’ I even said it was mediocre at best. I partake in facts (for the most part), not emotional outbursts.

    @Rosie At least Mariah has receipts. How will Lana fare in a generation new “it” singers come and go every 5 minutes? Lana was the hot new indie artist (thanks to a remix), but her future is as uncertain as everyone else’s. Look at Gaga.

  157. Kisses Down Low February 19, 2014

    beyonce has been sounding like shiit lately because the dumb w**** is used to lip syncing….

    I remember yeas ago a when somebody released the real voice of the $2 w****…my gosh she sounded worst than rihanna..before rihanna voice got better..

    her dumb a** stans will never admit when the dumb bish fuggs up..they are so far up her a**..they will be quick to bring up sales, and flops, to avoid the real reason people hates beyonce w**** a**

  165. Blah February 19, 2014

    Mariah’s new single is like #400 on iTunes, and she was not invited to perform so why are we even talking about her?

  166. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    Beyonce’s performance was a mess. Is it safe to say that she is declining? Her Grammy performance was more cringe-worthy than the sight of Ciara’s shrivelled up penis. And now this f****** breathy struggle? I love Beyonce’s voice but this wasn’t ready.

    Rihanna’s AMA Diamonds performance >>>>>
    2012 Stay performance >>>>

    Even Mariah’s Triumphant performance >>>

  167. Rosie February 19, 2014

    Too late. Lana was the hot new “indie” artist in late 2011, well before her album was released, and her first single was one of the most acclaimed of that year.
    However, many said her career was over after SNL in 2012, although it didn’t affect her at all outside of the US. Now she’s bigger than ever there, her album is platinum after selling only 77K first week (that’s near impossible these days), and her album sold 5 million worldwide with little promo. The only reason the remix was released was because of Interscope needing some money for Fadga’s massive (failed) promo. And her album is about to spend its 107th week on the Billboard 200, and if HDD is right, it is still top 40 after all this time.
    Praise Lana, her staying power. Anyone doubting her longevity at this point needs to take a thousand seats.

  168. JOHNVIDAL February 19, 2014

    What? Did Katy Perry perform???? LOL I can imagine that already. Now I know for a fact Bruno Mars was the best performance of the night without seeing any apart from Beyonce´s.
    And guys admit it, like I siad before: Beyonce had some problems singing this, and it´s not like it is Whitney, mariah or Celine´s type of songs. It´s a pretty simple song. Of course she´s better than Rihanna and the others, but she´s so far from reaching such a superior level. And btw, did she had a baby hersel or not? I´m asking cos people are saying her voice is changing since giving birth, like assuming she gave birth (not that I think less of her if she didn´t, it´s her life and her choice, I´m not a sad hater).
    Why are so many people talking about Mariah in this post again btw? Let´s see how many hit sigles can Beyonce get in her 40s (hell she´s not getting them since 2009 except for the moderate hit that is Drunk in Love now) or Rihanna, without radio support and without young looks. I´m predicting none.

  169. kimbella February 19, 2014

    She was more flat then Rihanna at the amas.

  170. Ratedx(next bish) February 19, 2014

    I was dead at she makes more money than any other black female artist out there….REALLY, Mariah shitts on her earnings every year…

    this w**** of a wife and mother has to tour every year, re-released all her albums, has to have a flop clothing line that no real celebs ever caught dead wearing(meanwhile, celebs loves jessicas line), huge endorsements, has to be on every magazines and tv shows

    and yet the w**** cannot even touch Mariah..who doesn’t tour, who doesn’t have a clothing line, who doesn’t re released all her albums

    yes Mariah is more black than beyonce I wish I was a white woman will ever be.

  171. Rosie February 19, 2014

    Death. I’m not even trying to stan MGMT. I’m just pointing out that their 6 (or 7) year old song is charting above Moo’s super hyped-up, new lead single on iTunes.

  172. Rosie February 19, 2014

    Oh, here comes Rated Pressed with it’s semi-daily anti-Beyoncé novels full of lies and fairytales.

  173. Brandys Starr February 19, 2014

    I really enjoyed it. Her aura and stage presence is just magical to watch even when shes just standing there. She fascinates me.

  174. musiclover February 19, 2014

    i love beyonce but the vocals were just right she didnt do nothing crazy the performance was good not great..but lets not forget shes been rehearsing for 7 hours for her show tomorrow so im guessing shes taking it easy

  175. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Rosie Hyped up by whom? This site? Does anyone even listen to radio anymore? Because apart from radio interviews I didn’t see Mariah doing any real promo. She did do MTV, but that channel has been worthless to me since TRL got cut so maybe I missed her on there.

    As for your assessment of Lana’s career, Nelly Furtado had an even more promising career with both English and Latin audiences (not to mention she could actually sing), and we all know how that ended…

  176. musiclover February 19, 2014

    and btw if u stan for whitney celine mariah and all rnb legends you are allowed to shade other artists vocal

    but if u stan for ciara rihanna katy perry or britney yall are not allowed to shade other artists for their vocals. PERIOD

  177. Rosie February 19, 2014

    The reach. Lana and Nelly have nothing in common. Not to mention Nelly had a six year break in-between albums. That’s what you get when to take that long and come back with dated mess from 2006.
    And Moo has iTunes banners, a BET performance, and her team put an entire 2 minute teaser for the song on YouTube bragging about her accomplishments from 1896 and calling it the next We Belong Together. Oh, and the Valentines Day gimmick. Too bad none of it will save the song now.

    @Molly I Loved the hole look it was amazing & she looked BEAUTIFUL! but I do think she might be getting a cold or somthing. She needs to leave NYC & go to LA for a week.

  181. Common Sense February 19, 2014

    @Rosie Actually Nelly released an album in 2009 not that it’s relevant to this discussion. I’ll take your word for Mariah’s promo since I don’t use iTunes or watch BET, MTV, or Vh1. I did watch the somewhat cringe worthy 2 minute teaser, but it’s not like it was filled with lies. They were her accomplishments.
    As I’ve said before, she doesn’t need any more come backs (even if she wants them), as she already an established legend. She can afford to flop, newer artists can’t. Not in the volatile music industry of today.

  182. L.M.A.O February 19, 2014

    Why are the lames still in here? They want Beyonce to decline so bad because Mariah has declined. L.O.L.

    Sorry it’s Beyonce’s time now. Keep dreaming though 🙂

  183. ariana who? February 19, 2014

    Mariah can afford to flop Lana Rihanna Gaga Katy Beyonce etc cant. Mariah is a legend.

  184. L.M.A.O February 19, 2014

    Beyonce’s not flopping though. 17 years into her career she is selling better than the newbies. She’s proved that she can tour without new music. She has won several grammys. She is respected. At this point she doesn’t have much to prove. She’s just slaying because she can. can’t put her in the same sentence with Gaga, Rihanna, and Katy. They are the ones who still have something to prove.Beyonce’s legacy is already cemented.

  185. anti garbage singing voices February 19, 2014

    Stop the hate,Beyonce was good and dont act like you haters here can sing better.And Ratedx,go and suck a black D**k.

  186. drunk in love February 19, 2014

    It don’t matter what Beyoncé does, she’s darn if she do and darn if she don’t. Her performance was great. Beyoncé look so flawless and might I say, I even think maybe she’s pregnant. Beyoncé’s tour started back up. Beyoncé let us see little Ms. Blue Ivy soon to be big sister. Even Jay z looks different. Announcement coming soon- Beyoncé pregnant with second child.

  187. Grande The Way February 19, 2014

    Not every performance needs extra runs and melisma to be great. Beyonce did a good job, one of the few ladies that did. Katy Perry sounded throaty and painful as usual but Lorde had to be the worse. The girl has no talent at all. Now that was a flat performance. I’m impressed with the smoke and mirrors she has working around, it has people fooled into thinking she is truly some great talent judging by all these awards she is winning.

  188. Grande The Way February 19, 2014

    Do my eyes deceive me? Did I really read a comment claiming Nelly Furtado can sing? Oh my

  189. anti garbage singing voices February 19, 2014

    Who is Mariah Carey? Where BOTOXFACE Mariah> itunes, #550? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Its 2014 thats what counts and and Beyonce is killing everybody in just almost 3 months. She already proof that she owns the crown. Keep hating on her, your hate is her blessing, dont you haters see where she Is now? Her performer was great and even on Beyonce WORST day, she still sound better than dead cat voice Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady gaga etc. And some of you haters are just angry that you cant hate on her clothes and that why is why you are hating on her singing now. It doesnt matter what she does the haters will always find something to hate on. HATERS HERE, FUKK YOU ALL, non of you haters crying b****es here can sing, but are talking someone that can sing down? HAHAHAHAHAHA, SOUR JEALOUS HATERS&LOSERS.

  190. Stephy Tha Lambily February 19, 2014

    Dont get my words twisted! Beyonce can still SANG! But her voice has dropped some octives since giving birth thats all im saying…

    As for Rihanna. Well, she is not a singer she is an Madonna-est type of artist. She has a cute pop voice with island tones. She is not a sanger never was & never will be. But Rihanna is not expected to be nothing but a pop star. She is a visual artist. She sells records due to her cute/island tone & body!

    By the way…

The critics are luving the performance! So keep on yapping ur shitty mouths because THE QUEEN CAN’T BEY STOPPED!!! The Time Mag said” her performance was Peerless!!!! I know u b*tches don’t know what that mean but just know u wont be hearing it connected to ur lesser favs lmaooooo. Also The Gawker said clearly she was the star of the show! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS Keep hating b*tches. #2014…… THE YEAR OF THE IMMORTAL BEYONCE

  192. True That February 19, 2014

    NOthing to write home about that’s for sure. IT was carried by the lights, overall production and her ‘beauty’ but if anyone else did that (and minus the production) very average.

  193. FAF February 19, 2014

    @Edisondreams @Molly I don’t know what it is. Maybe she’s tired from the live shows. She looks great but something sounds hoarse. And the first note shes honestly sounded nervous vocally, which I’ve never heard before

  194. True That February 19, 2014

    Rihanna’s live Stay performances >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>XO

    anybody who can’t admit that is delusional.

  195. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 19, 2014

    I liked this performance… And @anti singing voices I agree with almost everything except the part about where you included gaga.. You actually believe that? Okkk…. And not only that but when you said none of us can sing.. Can you? Don’t you come after artists on here? You should change your name if you can’t sing cuz you would sound like a hypocrite otherwise 😉

  196. Theman February 19, 2014

    The issue is that y’all are so stuck on flashy performances, that when y’all see someone with a regular non over the top performance, y’all are bored. She has been on tour forever. Her voice is fine.. And Mariah can definitely still sing. Y does Lana always look like she’s doing drunk karaoke? Talk about a boring snooze fest.. iTunes isn’t the end all be all.. Y’all Stan so hard that y’all now just look for negativity in every performance.. The best part of this song is that it’s not over the top..

  197. Lolz February 19, 2014

    This was a perfect performance for the Brit awards. It’s already getting praise.

  198. True That February 19, 2014

    There go the stans trying to beat people into submission, I don’t need anyone elses opinion, what I saw was mediocre for such an ‘acclaimed’ everything, even some Idol performances are more grabbbing. That seemed like an impromptu performance like okay I’ll sing, there was nothing great about it, or even very good.

  199. Theman February 19, 2014

    She looked beautiful, the performance was subdued. She’s catering to her different audiences.. It seemed like a warm up tho..

  200. True That February 19, 2014

    I just checked around and most comments on other boards are calling it wack, lackluster and questioning this “Queen” thing. one site (paid) called it breathtaking and all the comments are saying they didn’t see anything breathtaking and some say they are her fans. Her stans will call anything phenomenal.

  201. Lolz February 19, 2014

    There is NOTHING wrong with Beyoncé voice. Beyoncé knows how to preserve her voice and doesn’t strain it and you forget she is about to embark on her world Tour again TOMORROW and has been rehearsing hours on end in its build up. Her voice needs preservation. I don’t know how you can judge her octave range on a song like XO were there are like no key changes! The song requires her to sing in a lower register. Her previous Mrs Carter show performances shows she still has plenty of range.

  202. anti garbage singing voices February 19, 2014

    NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT

    YES I CAN SING, I SING JAZZ and I play the piano. Vocally im good. You look at one Beyonce performence and you make a conclusion, look at all Beyonce performers, vocally she 100 times better than Gaga. Everybody has their good and bad day. And when Beyonce has her good day, gaga is nothing. Im not hating im just telling it like it is. And when it comes to top 250 best singing voices ever Beyonce is 10 and Gaga isnt in that list.

  203. Lil Kim’s Baby February 19, 2014

    I wasn’t completely wowed by this…but knowing Bey she probably decided to perform like this because of: 1) the audience at the event/watching 2) the critiques on her grammy performance… Just a marketing stint.

  204. Theman February 19, 2014

    Also as far as a vocalist, no one has done it like MC.. NO ONE.. She does everything that a complete vocalist could ever dream of.. But back to Beyonce, she just seems a lot more relaxed.. People expect high energy performances from her because she’s that kind of performer..

  205. anti garbage singing voices February 19, 2014

    TRUE THAT

    And others that are not her fan are saying that she was good, her fans are saying she was good. On twitter, the comments are calling it the best performer of the BRITS. Sorry, most comments that I see are positief,here are the most negative comments but here are also the home of Beyonce haters.

  206. anti garbage singing voices February 19, 2014

    BTW, Where is ARTFLOP? How much did Gaga sold again? Lol.

  207. True That February 19, 2014

    That is so not true. You know the popular blogs just go to them. All are saying it was flat, then there are few like you trying to ‘report’ otherwise.

  208. Anne February 19, 2014

    WOW!!! Absolutely beautiful vocal performance, really highlighted the nature of the song. Great performance Bey!

  210. anti garbage singing voices February 19, 2014

    TRUE THAT

    It is tru.. Only thing you need to do is visit twitter and their is are many magazine that reporting about her performer, dailymail is calling it a stunnig performer saying that Beyonce killed it, they all are positief even the critics. Just visit twitter.

  211. TheezyKnows February 19, 2014

    PEREZ HILTON. 15 Times Beyoncé Was ***Flawless During Her Performance Of XO At The BRIT Awardshat a night of performances!
    From Bastille to Pharrell to Katy Perry it was an all around impressive night at the BRIT Awards!
    But, let’s be real.
    Beyoncé’s performance was the most flawless of them all.
    Not only was she a glitzy goddess during it, but her vocals were absolutely AH-MAZE!
    The whole thing was a win and we’ve got totally the proof.

    Beyonce is not a ‘lead’ singer, she’s a ‘group’ singer. Her voice is only good when it’s in a group setting. Everything else is smoke and mirrors.

  219. Jewel February 19, 2014

    Lies^

  220. johnyvb February 19, 2014

    I can’t understand the hate towards her vocal performance. Is XO anything like Resentment? or Pretty Hurts? or Love on Top? or Rocket? Hell, is it similar to Listen? Don’t think so. I’m sorry, but she did an amazing job with the type of song that it is. She can sing whatever she wants, and her voice is as versatile as it was when she began her career. Stop hating just to make yourselves feel better about the artists you support, Beyonce has vocals for days, she proves it with her recordings and her live performances.

    This was mediocre for her but Bey seems so laid back these days like she’s saving herself or something.

    And Bey is not a smoke and mirrors performer. If you believe that you seriously need to do your research or quit the selective memory because yes, she can be extravagant like many other legendary performers, but she has proved throughout her career she can slay stripped back sets also. She is one of the few performers who can do both and give variety in her shows at a high standard. Amazing Hugh energy performers and big vocal ballads with one spotlight.

    *Throws you ‘I am Yours: Live in Las Vegas’ for good measure.*

    I think this was a beautifully understated performance. Less is more in this case. Beyonce looked really amazing as well.

  223. tits mcgee February 19, 2014

    If she would have screamed through the song(which would not suit the song), people would complain. Now that she took a tastefully understated approach, people still have an issue. It was a good showing. Some people are gonna always shade, even when it’s not warranted. #Can’tWinForLoose

    Her voice was off, but it was still good, not great, but good. Bey always been a belt/growler, she was never good at falsettos. She can hit them short, but never long like Aaliyah and Ashanti.

  225. gilbert February 19, 2014

    Beyhive, let’s admit it. she looks BEAUTIFUL, FLAWLESS. but we all know that this isn’t mama’s best. she can do BEYOOOONNNNDDDDD this. i think she needs to perform all her new songs on tour first and get the feel of it, get comfortable with all of the improv and s*** and then BAM once she performs it on award shows, she’s gonna kill it. i think she’s still getting into gear mode. nonetheless, she looks beautiful, vocals were on point and hey, Bey’s mediocre performance will still be better than most artists.

    XO is low register song. Its quite difficult because its very much one tone sometimes that can be even harder. Theres are no high notes. So I don’t know what people are talking about with that one. Beyonce has a nice falsetto she can sustain, she is a mezzo soprano. But of course its not going to be showcased in this song

  227. Naomi February 19, 2014

    I can’t @ people coming for her talent as a whole. Stop REACHING. It wasn’t her best but she is human for crying out loud. Katy Perry is an example of smoke and mirrors on stage not Beyonce. Perrys performance was a hot ass mess. The kii is Beyonce still had the best female vocal that even on her off night. Bruno was the best male.

  228. Mark111 February 19, 2014

    Bey is a great vocalist, but she can’t hit long false or head notes. She can hit short ones, but I only seen her hit long notes a few times.

  229. Naomi February 19, 2014

    And any true fan of Beyonce can see the pattern with her over the years. She is always a sketchy on her first televised performances of a song. She is always nervous she hasn’t seem to got over it. Its when you learn shes not a robot.

  230. Naomi February 19, 2014

    @Mark111 She sings entirely in falsetto in the background of Flawless being a most recent example.

  231. Mark111 February 19, 2014

    Bey always does ok when she first performs a song for the first time, she did with Crazy In Love at the BET awards, Halo, and like a boy. So she’s gonna take this song as well and twist the s*** out of it and kill it.

  232. Mark111 February 19, 2014

    @NAOMI That’s a recording, I’m sure she can hit them in a studio, but she can’t execute them on the spot LIVE. Just like Mariah with all her notes. And I think the Flawless backsound is head voice cause it had a lot of power. (Rihanna’s my fave, but she kills it in the stupid, but f up LIVE with most of her head and false notes.)

  233. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) February 19, 2014

    So she made that tired boring cat suit she wears at her tours into a dress now?

  234. UbettaWERK February 19, 2014

    I know she’s yall’s Queen and all. . . but these performances as of late. . have not been it honey. I have been very bored.

    She’s too busy with that ugly husband of hers to do her job.

    *Que Lyndriette to take her spot.

  235. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) February 19, 2014

    LOol! I just saw the pix on dailymail. Ewww what’s going on with the super tight corset? And the hip pads? She looks deformed old and manly looking in the face.

  236. Kacey February 19, 2014

    I was watching it with my mum at home. Shes like a goddess, so stunning and elegant. Couldn’t take my eyes off her.

  237. LOL February 19, 2014

    “I’m sure she can hit them in a studio, but she can’t execute them on the spot LIVE. Just like Mariah with all her notes.”

    LOL… Just when I thought these would learn to STFU by now.

  240. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2014

    The entire stadium when crazy after Mariah hit that high note. Even the players struggled to stay calm. How dare you come for the vocal TOUR DE FORCE when you stan for Rihanna?

    @RIH ROX
    I just read that this Brits Award show was the lowest TV viewing show in the 21st century (since 2000). That’s interesting considering they had Katy, Beyoncé, Lorde and One Direction performing.

    Last years Brit’s was the highest rated show in over a decade. They just had local Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake performing. I wonder if Beyoncé will get over 27 mil Youtube views like Taylor did for performance that night or 16 mil views that Justin T got.

    Twitter was up but it was because of some contest they had and it was open to the world.

  249. Mika February 20, 2014

    I have to admit, in the beginning I thought that she sounded a bit flat. However, towards the end with all of those runs, she sounded angelic. Overall a beautiful performance.
