Beyonce’s Awesome Live Billboard Awards Performance Of ‘Run The World’ [VIDEO]
If you missed the Billboard Music Awards, you most definitely missed Beyonce’s live performance of ‘Run The World’. Beyonce wowed the thousands in attendance and the millions watching at home with a breathtaking performance that showed why she was definitely deserving of the Millenium Award honors that were presented to her.
The performance opened with a black-and-white introductory video featuring accolades from her mother, her father, First Lady Michelle Obama, and legendary acts like Bono, Stevie Wonder, Babyface and Barbra Streisand.
Next, a giant lion head appeared on the video screen, shooting glitter from its mouth as Beyonce took the stage. “Ladies, our revolution has begun!,” she screamed.
As the song started, viewers were treated to a series of impressive visual effects, including laser lights and video clones of the singer that appeared on the screen behind her, creating an army of Beyonces as she sang the militaristic track.
Thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can watch it here.
