About once a month, I start jonesing for a good YouTube binge and I somehow always find myself looking up an unimaginable amount of Beyoncé live performances. Then, I get goosebumps. Then, I get chills. Then, I cry. Then, I watch videos until it’s 1am and I’m like, what year is it? YEAR OF THE YONCE?! (Always.)
Enjoy these videos. Prepare for tears. And chills. And goosebumps. And the realization that Bey is probably the most talented performer of our time… maybe of all the times? DO NOT FIGHT WITH ME ON THIS SHE IS SO CRAZY TALENTED IF YOU DON’T THINK SO YOU’RE A CRAZY PERSON.
Halo is the song that just keeps giving. As a recorded version, it’s chill-worthy, but as a live performance? Bey can do no wrong with this song and she is goddess level when she sings this song live.
2. I Was Here
WHAT IS THIS WATER COMING FROM MY EYES
3. If I Were A Boy
Untouchable. Be prepared to feel so freaking hyped up.
Not a song many people know of, but this version will make you repeat, repeat, repeat and then be like, so is this ’bout Jay Z or nah?
5. I Care
Half live performance and half some phone video footage which perfectly demonstrates that Bey’s voice is next fucking level. HOW. JUST HOW.
7. Best I Never Had
*dies* *cries* *dies*
8. Sweet Dreams
Those runs at the end? Are you even kidding, Bey? How.
9. Pretty Hurts
Gorgeous. Perfect. ***Flawless.
10. Superbowl Performance
Untouchable. Seriously. Who did it better?
CHILLS. PERPETUAL CHILLS.
12. Halo (Again)
I know you wanted another Halo. Here’s Bey just casually sitting on a chair and singing like an angel. You’re welcome.
