So coming into the game, folks were already thinking about the record. Beyoncé took full advantage of the moment and, instead of rocking one of her many hits in medley, she chose to continue the buzz from the day before and perform the new track live. Can somebody say “BAWSE”? Wow. We were floored as she lead her team of Black Panther clad dancers who were on point and definitely in formation.
She and Bruno Mars ended their segment with an amazing duet of Mars’ “Uptown Funk” as Mark Ronson scratched along with the infectious groove. It was truly a site to behold and we couldn’t have asked for a more amazing performance by two of today’s most amazing performers. Oh yea, and Coldplay was OK too, albeit a little bit of a downer performing mellow tracks like Yellow, especially relative to Beyoncé and Mars.
Enjoy Beyoncé and Bruno Mars (without Coldplay) below in case you were one of the 5 people who didn’t see it already:
