Watch: Beyonce Rocks TIDAL X: 1015 With Cinematic Performance

Published: Sunday 16th Oct 2016 by Sam

Beyonce may have wrapped her ‘Formation World Tour,’ but the slayage continued tonight at the TIDAL X 1015 concert.

Staged at the Barclays Center in New York City, the show saw Queen Bey serve as its centrepiece amidst performances from heavy-hitters such as Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, and Lauryn Hill.

Taking to the stage twice, the 35-year-old superstar first delivered a captivating, CGI assisted showing of  ‘6 Inch’ and ‘Haunted’ before returning to perform ‘All Night.’

Kudos to Bey for always pushing herself and the envelope.

Given the nature of the event, we’d have preferred to see her hit the audience with more of the familiar (see: ‘Formation’), but it’s clear she does as she pleases. And there’s something inherently satisfying in that. Somewhat.

Your thoughts?

    Nicki stole the show tbh, it was a pure hip hop set. The Melania diss, the twerk, the setlist that had the entire audience rapping along was hilarious and fantastic. I enjoyed it the most cuz of the pure fun enjoyment. Beyonce did excellent as well, much respect to her for not missing a single note even when her ear was bleeding. Her vocals were spot on as usual, outfit was beautiful, and the holograms were great. They were the best of the night for sure.

      Beyoncé needs to switch it up!

      • Orlando October 16, 2016

        stop, she’s a great performer and people love her

      • ? October 16, 2016

        She needs more new “resent hit songs” before ill go to see her show. Im not going to see hits from 15 years ago.

      • HailLegendBeysus October 16, 2016

        @?AKAFakeAdeleStan 2.2 million people, $256 million —–> You! She doesn’t nor does she need your hating ass to see her live. 2.2 million people were fine seeing her perform those “15” year old hits. While her haters seeth themselves into a grave, she stays getting paid with a bigger and bigger audience every tour! ???

      My mom and I both said the samething! I had no idea Nicki was this entertaining! Gotta go see her in concert!

    Beysus can sit there & hum & life will be given. Y’all will deal.

  3. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? October 16, 2016

    I saw a video on Twitter of Nicki getting on the floor and bowing down to Lauryn Hill it made me respect her even more. Nicki and Beyoncé both did their thing.

    Shoutout to all of the artists Bey has jacked styles and sound from her entire solo career!

    Bey been on

  6. cocobutta October 16, 2016

    Love her suit for all night.
    Good for Bey to mix it up and not rely on high tempo choreography all the time.

    That ponytail lethal weapon.

    Shout outs to Nicki the crowd lapped her up.

  7. SHAKAZULA October 16, 2016

    I swear Beyoncé is best performer living SHE F****** SLAYED!

  8. Everyone’s A Critic October 16, 2016

    ALL NIGHT! My favourite song on lemonade
    My favourite beyonce song
    My favourite song
    My future wedding song
    I just so in love with it
    And this performance was so understated that it was heavenly
    She has the most stage presence ever
    She really enjoyed herself during that and you could see it

  9. King B October 16, 2016

    She’s the only artist with no ” I have nothing to prove” excuses. I mean, after all those sales, earnings, acclaims, accolades, people worship you and highest grossing tours, you still give me 100% for a CHARITY CONCERT!!!?? I swear she’s the hardest working artist in history. I hope she wins AOTY.

  10. LB October 16, 2016

    I wish she would sing with the mic on. She seems obsessed with Mariah that she is copying her lip syncing technique.

    I laughed when someone said Kool-aid is an African American movement. Fun fact, over 90% of employees at Parkwood are white.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 16, 2016

      U are a fool if u think that entire performance was LIP-SYNCED…

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 16, 2016

      Bey’s performance on all night is better than most of frih-goat’s performance this entire year. TEA!!!

  11. HailLegendBeysus October 16, 2016

    She was great! If she incorporates this kind of stuff into her next tour it will be a massive success!

    • King B October 16, 2016

      Seems like the two creatures are starting to comment again. With the same drags over and over again.

  12. Ladylike4 October 16, 2016

    Bey kilt it per usual.

  13. King B October 16, 2016

    The haters are still with the lip syncing b*******. Its better than the “modified” p**** patting choreography or singing one work per song.

    • Sandra October 16, 2016

      It’s so boring to discredit another artist to make you feel better about the one you like or defend them. Someone has raised that they think Beyonce lip syncs and their comment has nothing to do with Rihanna or any other artist. If you don’t think Beyonce syncs then state why or link videos that prove otherwise than this lazy point

  15. Janet October 16, 2016

    I love Beyonce, and she looked gorgeous as usual, but her performance seemed off tonight. She sounded sort of tired, and looked like she just wasnt feelin it.

    • Suicide Blonde October 16, 2016

      I agree, she wasn’t feeling it, at times it seemed like she couldn’t sing anymore.

    • BEY>RIH October 16, 2016

      I think its obvious she is tired from touring and she was kind of hurt because of her ear bleeding.

    • Fatusankohew October 16, 2016

      Janet you lie stope hating

  16. King October 16, 2016

    Bey shut it down as always.
    Nicki needs stage presence from lil kim its horrible and so is that ass to thigh ratio.

  17. Sherrele October 16, 2016

    Beyonce was Amazing!

  18. Fatusankohe October 16, 2016

    Omg God she is good this melt y my heart tthank you god for blessing us with out talented queen Bey god continue to bless protect her for life long success career long happy life

  19. #ispeakfacts October 16, 2016

    Bey did good with all the visuals… sometimes all of that isn’t needed but Nicki came out there and totally slayed the old school way! No background dancers just pure talent! She had the best performance at TIDAL and yes even better then both Bey performances!

  20. Metzo October 16, 2016

    I was so amazed by Bey last night. What a woman

  21. B2B October 16, 2016

    I’m just over here living for Haunted!!! Lord knows she has paid that gem dust. So far she has performed FORMATION,PYCM, Hold Up, DHY, Sorry, 6 inch, All Night, and Freedom. Wonder if there will be a medley for Grammys or AMAs or Soultrain for that matter. Say what y’all will about FORMATION but that’s a stage slayer every time. It’s so infectious. Real contender for Record of the year.

  22. King B October 16, 2016

    When she improved her visual and production, the haters said they are not needed. FYI, Beyoncé has done the simple performance for the last decade of her career as well as the concept of simple videos. The reasons why these poptarts are doing simple performances and videos (Gaga, Rih, Nicki) are because they want to gain respect from the GP like Bey (which however, does not work for them,in GP eyes , they are still not vocalists). And these pop tarts are trying with simple videos as if they will become Single Ladies or 7/11.

  23. Rima October 16, 2016

    Nicki was great

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 16, 2016

      Excited for JOANNE’S first week sales…….i think it will do over 600kSPS and she could have the highest selling female album this year too.

  24. Danzou October 16, 2016

    I still haven’t seen nicki I’m so pissed

  25. RoyalKev October 16, 2016

    Bey’s such a warrior on stage! Tumbles down steps, blood spills or locks of hair caught in wind machines is no match for the might Bey!

  26. Usher In October 16, 2016

    ? King Bey!

  27. Jinkyz Threads and Gifts October 16, 2016

    We love powerful, independent women like Beyonce and Nicki, Lauryn Hill, Jennifer Lopez, Chrissy Tiegen, Alicia Keys, and Angelina Jolie who know how to maintain intelligence, political awareness, business acumen, and sexiness all without missing a beat! I could just see Bey and Nicki both rocking one of our feminist T-shirts or our new satirical political campaign shirts at the next Tidal event! Check us out at

  28. You better come thru October 16, 2016

    I was Tidal X 2016 and I guess I was looking for more dancing from Bey. AND where was Jay Z??!!?? Now Lauryn Hill and T.I did there thang. And yes Ms.Hill was ON TIME LOL!!!

  29. Thando October 16, 2016

    You better lip-synch for your life
