I Keep telling y’all Beyoncé has NO TALENT!!!

I don’t watch the “Grammy’s” anymore because gone are the days of the real talent and performers such as; Whitney Houston, Anita Baker, Natalie Cole, Tina Marie and Luther Vandross just to name a few. So I boycott the show.

But why am I not surprised that the internet is all abuzz over the fact that Beyoncé messed up her rendition of the gospel song “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” from the movie soundtrack “Selma”.

The song was originally performed with raw emotion by Ledisi but Beyonce’s Grammy performance and her opening notes fell flat as she tried and struggled with no effort based on her limited vocal range.

Most social media users agreed that Beyonce’s version failed in comparison to Ledisi’s excellent cover of Mahalia Jackson‘s “Precious Lord” in the movie ‘Selma’.

So why not just have Ledisi perform the song as recorded? Because the Grammy’s chose Beyoncé over Ledisi because Beyoncé is light skinned and fits the white standard view of black beauty.

Sad 😥 isn’t it?

      And this very well could have given Ledisi more exposure to open up her fan base but…I guess there’s only room for one at the top bc Beyonce needs more exposure 😆

    I’m just as baffled as everyone else. For the life of me I can’t understand why they didn’t let Ledisi sing that song and Beyonce sing her own songs. All I can say is politics and commercialism. That’s the only answer that makes sense. 😥

    Tracy, I don’t think it had anything to do with light-skinned v dark-skinned, and had EVERYTHING to do with ratings as far as the show’s producers were concerned. beyonce = more viewers = more sponsors = more money in everybody’s pockets.

        Civil,
        I agree. folks got the word CLASSIC fucked up. A classic is music that gets you into that space of thought and have you like ‘damn they was singing about some real shyt’. Something you can sing about 20/30 years from now and it still has relevance.

        Other than weddings and clubs, where else do you hear Beyoncé’s music? Do they attach that shyt to movements? Like the Greatest Love of all, kids was taught that song for their moving up ceremonies. Graduations! Heal the world was made for a huge humanitarian effort. Music like that. Don’t get me wrong Bey’s shyt is cool I love some of her songs but bitch ain’t makin no classic music.

And I do think that those people are anointed. Like Jhud, Fantasia, Yolanda Adams, even Belly Lice etc… Those types of of folks. And the Beyoncé’s and Rihanna can’t sing these types a songs
