Beyonce A Highlight Of Made In America Festival (Recap)
What she brought to the Made In America party was grown woman sexuality. From rolling on the stage while singing "Make Love To Me" to twerking through "End Of Time" to everything about "Get Me Bodied," Beyoncι gave the crowd a good, hard look at what a sexpot the mother of a toddler could be.
Almost more interesting than the songs, which were all the catalog tracks (heavy on the catalog, light on the hits) and none of her new stuff, were the between song short films. She explored the Marie Antoinette theme she's been cultivating around her still forthcoming next album. She recreated some well-known pop culture moments with a film reminiscent of a '90s Calvin Klein perfume ad and one that was distinctly Target-esque. But most touchingly was the film to tease "I Was Here." The entire audience let out a big "aw" when Blue Ivy popped on the screen.
Jay Z was teased he made a big trek across the grounds, just like he did last year, from Deadmau5′s stage to Beyoncι's, and showed up in her act via some background vocals before "Crazy In Love," but this was the Mrs. Carter Show only Mrs. Carter. - Courtney E.
