Jay-Z Amazed by Beyonce's 'American Idol' Rehearsal

Jay-Z Amazed by Beyonce's 'American Idol' Rehearsal

Check out Beyonce‘s pitch perfect rehearsal before performing her new single “1+1″ during American Idol‘s season finale!

The clip comes courtesy of the 29-year-old entertainer’s husband, Jay-Z, who recorded Bey as she warmed up her vocal chords before hitting the stage.

“Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time. This is the dressing room rehearsal for American Idol. NO MICROPHONE. No effects,” he wrote on his LifeandTimes website in a post titled “Pregame.”

I wish B had married that guy in the Halo video. JayZ looks like an old man.

So beautiful.

When you have a voice like this why make the stupid “Rule The World” song? Or as I call it a whole lot of noise

@lafamepoma: Stop talking about JLO that way.

It was aiight not GREAT….Gosh!!! She is an okay singer nothing special about her voice. Again, Mariah C., Whitney H. to name a few are the greatest singers of all time….Bey may sound better than most other pop stars out there that’s about it….she was shouting a lot through out the song…I dont know man…people are just obsessed with her looks…that’s all. But again the lyrics are kinda of meh……”dont know about guns but I’ve been shot by you” something like that…that was so whack….she is a GREAT performer and OKAY SINGER….

I think Beyonce bought this site!

This is just a trend following right now… dumbass ..he supports his wife and thats what good hubbys do ..but that something u will never know cause u r too damn dumb

WOW! Beyonce sounded so great!! Jay is right to be proud of his beautiful talented wife!

Great job,Beyonce!!

I am definitely buying her album!


Flawless per usual. He’s just supporting her as he should, leave Jay alone…

Wow! the haters are out here tonight haha. She has a great voice! people are soooooo jealous and its funny haha. she is so talented and im not even a stan. I like her songs a lot, but not love but this one is just so beautiful, lyrically and her voice is just so pure. Thanks Beyonce. Dont listen to the haters. they said the same thing when I Am.. came out but you still went number one and walked out with six grammy awards. Show ‘em B!!!!!

People, 1+1 is not even an official single. Chill.

her voice sounds awful,

WTF, JZ amazed is he,
I’m amazed that he finds her screeching singing voice bearable.

She has a beautiful voice that she has worked on for years. You can’t buy this kind of talent. All she needs is a microphone and she’d make millions.

I wish the actual performance came off as pure and soft as this one. She seemed too contrived on stage. But here, when she seems lost in her own world and is just singing to sing…perfection.
