    Oh My Goodness, this performance was everything, both were great, but that last one Hallejuah was unbelievable. True talent, undisputable, this album is going to be something to behold, timeless music on the way once again. What a musician. Slayyyyyyyyyage all over that stage tonight.

    It was absolutely wonderful. Just watch it become another top 10 hit for her and relaunch her career to where it once was. I’m here for this “minimalist” Alicia. Yes, ma’am!
    Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I hope you all enjoy the day and eat some great food at those packed restaurants. Lol!

    whattt, yes she did that. I haven’t been this excited for her in a while

    Ummm.. This changed everything how I feel about the song and direction. She looked comfortable and in her zone. This was a real honest performance and it gave me LIFE! Black artistry. She still can’t dance though.

      She can’t dance but not that her moves were awkard or something, she simply bopped to her own song and was looking cute. I truly truly love her since “The Diary of AK” and I’m glad she’s finally getting some praise after being so underrated lately. Hopefully song will blow up, she deserves it!!!

    She’s looking very fresh faced this go around as well! I love the whole style and look this era. If this music is supposed to be a prequel to Songs in A minor….im all the way here for it!

    It’s crazy how a lot of people here give Beyonce (The Best in The Game Right Now) a hard time but say this was good. That ish was FLARP (both flat and sharp), corny, too all over the place!!!! She always get’s an A for conviction but for performance skills she always get a C by today’s standard!!!! There’s kids appearing on the music talent shows that are far better. Bey needs better material but my girl Alicia Screams is a mess!
