    @shenanyginz: the moment with Taylor was pure class, but come on, there are several times when she has the mike totally down and her ‘voice’ is still singing. and a few parts where the camera shows that she didn’t bother moving her mouth at all. total lip sync. at least when Madonna used to ‘sing’ and dance she used a headset so the mike was by her mouth and you couldn’t totally see it was fake.

    and that opening did nada for the song for me.

    Her Perfomance was AMAZING!!! Talk about bringing down the house. She’s such a great performer. Pink and Green Day were also very good!!

    umm Says:

    There is s reason this song was video of the year. It lives up to the saying that less is more. Beyonce doesn’t need fancy props and computer and movie graphics to do a “song” performance. After all it is supposed to be about the music.
    Thousands of people copied and remade her video as they could see the difficulty and simplicity of the video and how catchy the song was. The steps were well choreographed and it was done in black and white. Which goes to show you….
    Beyonce doesn’t follow a trends, she does what she is comfortable with and works her talents to the best of her abilities.

    Katy Perry was talking about Beyonce giving Taylor her moment back Jared, not her performance.
