Beyoncé and Jay Z Perform ‘Partition’ at BET Awards


The Carters capped off the BET Awards with a surprise performance. While the couple was not at the actual show in L.A., they pre-taped a performance of “Partition” from their “On the Run Tour,” which kicked off in Miami last week.

Jay Z spit a new verse at the beginning of the track before Bey busted out her Crazy Horse-inspired moves on the pole.

Queen Bey also went home with three awards including Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, Best Collaboration, and the Fandemonium Award.

Watch Mr. and Mrs. Carter shut it down.

    Lol they didn’t shut anything down. They could’ve kept their little performance. Now I love beyonce so no shade but I felt cheated. I understand they couldn’t make it but don’t send some recorded crap I could’ve watched on YouTube.

    So they gone out gross One Direction, Madonna’s 400 mllion, U2 700 million, Madonna 300 mill, Bruce Springteen 300 million, Bon Jovi 300 million….

    I think u meant 2nd highest grossing tour for a black artist after Mrs Carter tour maybe???

    @Bey, after 90% of the ticket sales were reported, both billboard & forbes confirmed that the “on the run” tour is the 2nd highest grossing tour of all times. bootlegs (people & blogs) need to get it right … tickets for 16 of the 21 shows are sold out. are the tickets for the primary market are gone, secondary markets i.e. stub hub, etc are having trouble selling due to the inflated prices. out of the 21 dates, they are playing the rose bowl & metlife stadium TWICE due to demand. so now it’s not “black” anything … it’s second highest grossing tour period.

    Lip sync from top to bottom of the song.

    Has Beyonce lost her voice??

    Has Beyonce lost the respect she had for her fans??

    Has Beyonce lost her passion for live music??

    Is Beyonce just interested in wigs, fashion and booty shaking??

    So so so lame.

    @Badu, and yet we can hear clearly when she loses her breath while performing the song.

    Badu you sound like a bitter hater, There are PLENTY of footage of Beyonce performing live from the “on the run tour”, and her range and vocals are flawlessly strong. She is the best All around entertainer in the world right now and is a GLOBAL ICON, so stop reaching.

    “Crazy Horse inspired moves?” That’s so ignorant and disrespectful.

    @Yasmine, you’re so incredibly ignorant. crazy horse is a sixty year old historic parisian cabaret. beyonce explained the influence of this and how it inspired the dancing. all you know is a ratchet strip club. says a lot about you.


    Bey Reply:

    That is true. Ciara did an interview in 2009 and stated that the Love Sx magic video was inspired by Crazy Horse too.

    It’s a show in Paris
