Beyoncé Performs Brazilian Dance ‘Ah Lelek Lek Lek’ at Rock in Rio

Beyoncé

Beyoncé brought “The Mrs. Carter Show” to Brazil during Rock in Rio 2013 on Friday. The Grammy-winning diva closed out the first day of the annual festival in Rio de Janeiro with a thrilling set and a couple surprises.

Following “Halo,” she led the crowd of 85,000 in a chant of “XO XO.”

“Hugs and kisses, ya’ll. I love you. Let me see you say, XO, XO,” said Bey while putting her arms in the shape of X and O.

Just last month, she shot a music video at Coney Island with director Terry Richardson for a new song reportedly called “XO.”

During her 90-minute set, she also performed MC Federado’s popular Brazilian dance “Ah Lelek Lek Lek.” “I want to do something special for ya’ll,” she told fans before busting out some funky moves with dance duo Les Twins.

The festival continues throughout the weekend with performances from Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, and Jessie J.

Watch Bey bring the heat to Brazil.

    Yoooo she KILLED it … she literally gives me goosebumps everytime I watch her. She is HANDS DOWN the greatest entertainer of our generation. She is legit in a league all by herself. I’ve seen her live before and its a natural high you experience. So much talent. The “Ah Lelek Lek Lek” was so dope too.

    @Bobby, take away the wig she is whipping around, all those tons of dancers, strobe lights, theatrical effects and what do you have

    – a woman with plucked chicken hair, same old dance moves,same old tired songs, same old country cow voice with tired songs. I’d never pay a dime to see her. She is all HYPE. that’s why she has the camera constantly scanning the people at the front and not the whole stadium/corn field to brainwash the world. Not me! LOL

    You will have a woman who looks ordinary, who could still put on an extraordinary show. That’s basically your point.

    @Chloé Magnolia, YEAH with the right stage props anyone can look good. The dancers and lighting people are the ones who are really Wowing the crowd and she is taking all the credit for marching around, whipping her wig, and the same old tired songs.

    Ciara made the greatest video of all time “Ride” with nothing but her beautiful self.

    @dave, First off Bey could stood there with her pyjamas on, hair tied, had no make up on and STILL make the crowd go wild. Why? Because she has a talent which is very rare in todays music industry. She also has this crazy drive and passion for music. But narrow minded people like you don’t seem to get that because your being too busy hatin I guess. And what is even more funny is that she always keeps saying how she couldn’t do it all alone and that she’s very grateful for all the people who’ve helped her though her career. But you on the other hand trying to hard to make people think some type off way about Bey. And YOU are the one that couldn’t fooled me. You tried tho. Props for the effort

    @dave, So you’re just another Ciara fan mad at an artist who’s doing something Ciara can’t do. She’s banking off her greatest hits tour and that’s why you’re mad. You’d never pay a dime to see her than why are you commenting on her stage presence? Watching a video footage is different from an actual concert experience.

    @channel_ROMAN, THANK YOU!

    dave Reply:

    @channel_ROMAN, When she is due credit, she will GET IT FROM ME, but until then she gets nothing but the TIRED TRUTH, about her TIRED ACT!

    If the truth offends you, you are just a fool who falls for the HYPE! The emperor has NO clothes, and Beyawnsay has no great stage act.

    Real talent stands alone like the great Whitney Houston.

    @dave, But isnt that the same for every artist? If you take away the theatrics, you will just have a person standing there singing???? You are reaching. But thanks for taking the time out of your day to express your dislike for someone.

    @classic87,

    Whitney stood alone. Elvis stood alone. KEM stands alone. Frankie Beverly of Maze stands alone. Gladys Knight stands alone. The great Patti Labelle stands alone. Toni Braxton can stand alone. Ciara stands alone. Pink stands alone. Lady Gaga can stand alone. Chris Brown can stand alone. Keyshia Cole can stand alone. Monica can stand alone. Brandy can stand alone. I can name a LOT of stars who dont need 20 dancers, and hundreds of technicians with light effects.

    Beyonce rarely can stand alone. She needs a whole team to make her special. She gave up kelly and michelle prop up for 20 dancer prop ups LOL

    The GREATS can command an audience with just their raw talent.

    @dave, (In the words of Jamie Foxx) “SKRRRRRRRRRRRRT!” You literally jumped off the bridge when u said Ci-error. I give her props for her little club bangers she had. But to sit there and compare her Minnie mouse sounding a$$ to a powerhouse like Bey is shameful to you. And Chris brown is ALWAYS having slot of effects and dancers on stage. Those two statements alone prove you need to sit yo a$$ down somewhere.

    The photo itself gave me LIFE before even pressing play on the video. Lol. Beyonce is so talented and beautiful, she is definitely in a league of her own and nobody is better than her at all around performing! Slayyyyy King B !

    @Von Tae’, that’s the biggest lie ever told. Chris brown and ciara out performs her every time.

    Oh. Reply:

    @SuperTurntUp, I’m sorry what? Chris and his either A. Lip syncing or B. hoarse ass vocals while doing the same moves he been doing the last 5 years? Ciara and her lack of vocal range doing the same moves she been doing since Goodies? Out dance maybe, cause ciara is nothing more than a dancer who can hold a note, but as far as a whole performance. There is Beyonce, and __________.

    LIES ARE HATE. I HAVENT LIED ONCE.

    HER ACT IS THE SAME.
    NO NEW SONGS
    SHE NEEDS TONS OF HELP
    AND ALL THOSE FACTS ARE TRUE. ALL SHE NEED TO DO IS IMPROVE HERSELF, INSTEAD OF TRYING TO FOOL THE PUBLIC, TO GET MY APPROVAL. I’M NO HATER.

  18. Awesome

    Lmao Ciara is a better performer than Beyonce? There is more to performing than dancing, and that’s all Ciara can do. She can’t sing nor does she possess crazy energy like Beyonce! That useless flop shouldn’t even be mentioned in the same breath as Queen Bey. Next

  19. Shutterbug

    I still give CiCi the edge…because “Queen Bey” is the QUEEN OF SELLOUTS.

    She’s kissin’ up to every culture EXCEPT HER OWN…with the tour bein’ based off a European monarch who OWNED SLAVES (there were no African ones to choose from?), to THIS…at least CiCi is BLACK AND PROUD.

    [Reply]

    Beyever Reply:

    @Shutterbug, and look at Ciara’s album sales ? I’ll wait …….. Beyonces is kissing the right cultures ass lol because had she been performing on 106&park she’ll in up with 50k like ciara

    [Reply]

    janice Reply:

    @Beyever, Ciara’s album sales are totally in line with what top performers can sell in today’s bad economy, in the digital age of everybody accessing free music through tv, radio, and the internet. NO ONE is buying albums when they can listen for FREE. Ciara is NICHE marketed to certain groups and not for mass consumption. She is nich marketed to only black young female audience.

    If she was marketed to the masses her sales would reflect that.

    SHE IS DOING GREAT IN THIS ECONOMY, IN HER LANE, AND WILL ALWAYS HAVE A RECORD LABEL FOR HER PERFORMANCE ABILITY, WHICH EXCEEDS EVERY FEMALE ARTIST ALIVE TODAY.

    @Shutterbug, Bey queen of sellouts? Have you checked Nicki Or Riri. Not hating on them but they pretty much kiss asses. Would a sellout do a songs that has African vibe to it for example Grown Woman or Caribbean vibes like Standing On The Sun??? And these are songs of her UPCOMING album. Phuk outta here with that shit!!!

    Ahhhh lek lek lek, crap here comes America late on this song. This came out last year. Brazil has moved onto doing the quadradinha de 8 (YouTube it) and Escorrega! But I do appreciate Beyonce for the dedication.

    janice Reply:

    @JMar, i wouldn’t hate on her like that just cause she needs to prove she is a leader by putting out some music and taking a risk.

    Taking risk is what LEADERS do.

    I love all the comments. The older Beyoncé fans get the lesser they think of her.

    Its like her old fans put down the Manufactured Barbie – and picked up true artist.

    Its been 10 years as a solo artist – Her greatest single was Crazy-in-Love. Beyonce has yet to out sell any of the Destiny Child albums.

    I remember Beyonce said she never wants to be like Lauren Hill,. But right now Lauren Hill is the only one of the two with legacy music material… i’m just saying
