Beyonce Tributes Whitney Houston and Lauryn Hill At Revel
If anyone was proud of Beyonce as she made her return to the stage last night at the Revel in Atlantic City, it was definitely her hubby Jay-z who sent out the tweet, “I’m gonna say this and then I’m gonna end mine.” BEYONCE is the best performer in the world. Period.‘
Whether you agree to disagree with Jay or not, King Bey took to the stage in rare form last night as she delivered a two hour breathtaking show in front of 5,500 screaming die-hard fans. She breezed through some of her crowd favs like, ‘Irreplaceable’, ‘I Was Here’, ‘Who Run The World’, and ‘End Of Time’, as well as a special tribute of ‘Ex-Factor’ for Lauryn Hill who was celebrating her birthday yesterday. She also performed, ‘I Will Always Love You’ before transitioning into ‘Halo’ in honor of the late Whitney Houston.
Before the show, she revealed that she put the final bells and whistles on the show in two weeks and she hopes that others are inspired by what she was able to achieve:
We usually have two months to do what we’re doing in two weeks but what is new? Getting this show together, learning choreographer and directing something so huge…for me to do all this four months after giving birth, it feels like I went from zero to ten. It was really hard but I did it and I’m hoping that somebody can be inspired by what I did.
