The rumours were true and last night Beyoncé performed a 16-minute medley of songs taken exclusively from her self-titled fifth album.
Despite opening with Mine then performing Drunk In Love and ***Flawless, there was no special appearances from any other artist. It was all about Beyoncé (as it usually is) and it was brilliant – but we already knew it would be.
Every performance she ever does will be perfect because it’s so well-rehearsed. Every movement, every ad-lib, every piece of crowd interaction. It’s admirable that she dedicates so much time to her craft but when she says something like “are y’all ready to get grimey?” it just isn’t natural.
However, these things are trivial when you’re watching someone do what she does for 16 minutes non-stop.
BEYONCÉ is available on iTunes now. (UK)
