Beyonce At BET Awards 2009

  • Pin it

Queen Bee attended the BET Awards 2009 ceremony as she was one of the leading nominees. Her performance, however, reminded of a wedding though she was expected to perform in honor of Michael Jackson.

Now I may be seeing things wrong, and this really is a tribute to the King Of Pop, but that is something you’ll have to talk me through. For now I just think Beyonce was just beautifully, angelically taking advantage of her mysterious wedding to create a powerful impression dressed in a wedding-like gown and singing Ave Maria! (more pictures and a video of her BET performance right after the jump!)

I actually had a Christmas feeling seeing Beyonce’s Angel and Ave Maria performance. She does have a great voice, but I still feel strangely ambivalent about her wedding thingie (I do think it’s a wonderful Sasha Fierce-less night). How about you? Feel the tribute-vibe anywhere near Beyonce’s BET Awards 2009 stage performance? (photos via)

I was not impressed. The only tribute to Michael is that Beyonce is in Neverland-her own little world.

I hate the first dress. It’s ugly imo. But when she wore the long jacket with that body suit. She worked it well.

katalyst makes a good observation.
Beyonce is a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice but I really hate this!

Beyonce is becoming way too full of herself. She is very talented but her “huge ego” is starting to make her look uglier and ugier to me!!

I like Beyonce, but she was dead wrong this time. Singing Ave Maria in a swimsuit and a see thru wedding dress with your “virtue” conveniently exposed up front for the world to see was not giving homage to the Virgin Mary. She would have gotten the point across easier by singing “Wait til you see my —“. I thought she was going to have some wings and fly like an angel, not look like a ho bride on her wedding night in see through lingerie.

Beyonce looked so ridiculous, I almost felt sorry for her.

Okay I did watch the BET awards last night because I was curious to see the MJ tribute. But Beyonce’s Bridal concoction was just too silly.
What does singing Ave Maria (one of my favourites but I adore Kathleen Battle’s version) in a wedding dress have to do with anything? It was a bizarre juxtaposition that looked odd and made no sense to what was she was singing.
As for clothes I did like what Zoe Saldana, wore she looked lovely, and I was very touched and pleased to see Janet Jackson. She was very moving with her words in regards to her brother.

Beyonce thinks every thing should be about her. It was suppose to be about Michael Jackson not about that bi*h. What she did was very disrespectful to the Jackson family.

I think Beyonce was a HOTT MESS! And just before she performed Jamie said that her performance was going to be beautiful. Wrong…… She need to ge over herself because she is not all that great.

I attended to BET Awards and overall I was extremely disappointed with the performances. Especially Miss Beyonce. SMH is all I can do at this point.
