Beyonce Brings Glastonbury to the 2011 BET Awards
Beyonce was unable to attend tonight’s 2011 BET Awards, given that she was closing out the big Glastonbury Music Festival in England, but she was there in spirit. The Queen B not only delivered her sassiness over the pond, but BET viewers got a taste of her hits ‘Best Thing I Never Had‘ and ‘End of Time,’ which were aired during the big ceremony.
Being the first African-American female to headline the Glastonbury Fest is a big feat, even for Beyonce. With the wind blowing behind her, thousands of Sasha Fierce fans sang along as the Texas native delivered ‘Best Thing I Never Had,’ before leading into an upcharged track from her new album, ’4,’ called ‘End of Time.’
Beyonce — and all of the Glastonbury Festival — gave a big “What’s up BET” to viewers back home, as they enjoyed an outdoor festival of major proportions.
B sparkled in gold sequins, and was backed by a red and blue light show and dancers in glittery black leotards. By the end of the second song, the ‘Single Ladies’ hitmaker took a break from belting out her big voice to dance in a synchronized fashion with them, giving Beyonce fans around the world a firsthand look at why she’s the No. 1 lady in R&B.
