What did you think of Beyoncé’s look and performance?


  1. She was fab! However, I think she was a tad overdressed.

  2. Oh and it’s reported that she was lip syncing!!!!!

      I agree!! I thought her dress was suited more for evening, not daytime. Also, I just heard about the lip syncing reports. Maybe that’s why she pulled out the earplug? I never know why singers do that. I need to ask my cousin! LOL

  3. it was good.
