I GOT EGG ON MY FACE THANKS TO BEYONCÉ.

Well, well, well.

Leave it to Beyoncé to prove me wrong. A bud of mine showed me this clip of her appearance on Oprah, and I was most impressed with her performance of this song from Dreamgirls. I mean, really. She's been doing those cute club pop songs forever, and I've always found her a bit irritating and overhyped; now I finally get to hear the sista sing for real, and well, she got me. She is amazing. At least in this performance she is. Please tell me she ain't lip syncing! The girl owns the stage, sings from the heart, and doesn't even look like the usual Beyoncé we're all used to seeing. I had to rub my eyes a couple of times to make sure it was her.

I mean, is that really freakin' her?! It's unbelievable! Did someone else's voice invade her body at this moment for her to sound so amazing?

Have a look and listen:

Wow, you're right, WAT. It sounds like Beyonce, but so much more refined.

Marko said...

I think even on her last record she has shown some promise. I have always thought her talented but she has been doing more adult work and showing her range. She has talent beyond the bubble gum pop persona.

Wow, I'm impressed.

Darci said...

Meh. I am still unmoved. Her voice is still whiny and shrill and her vibrato is sharp and uncontrolled and I can't STAND to listen to her.

Sorry darling. :-)

I am very impressed, I have never heard of a woman with such a stunning vibrato since Pavarotti! The effect is warm and shimmering, a golded gilded butterfly kisses the shoulders of God himself. Oh how the angels must have wept. Her proper modulation, inundated with various seraphim like cascading mood altering honeyed ululations had me furtively reaching for my private parts to rub briskly and fiercely until I basked in the warm waters of lapping at the edges of a wide round lake.

Two thumbs up, way up!

I enjoy Beyonce in every capacity. She's my black sugar, and I can't get enough of this bish...

Dreamgirls was cool, but I'd much rather see her do her thing, like her performance on the BET Awards. Have you seen it??
