Beyonce and Jay-Z Perform "Drunk in Love" at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards took place last evening. Opening the show were Beyonce and Jay-Z, doing a live performance of "Drunk in Love."
 
In case you missed it:


A few things to keep in mind. Beyonce's self titled album "Beyonce" was NOT nominated (release date missed the nomination cut off), nor was the song "Drunk in Love." Understandably, "Drunk in Love" is the biggest song in the country right now. Beyonce was the only black woman to perform at this year's show. Granted there were other black women actually nominated, the producers decided to have Beyonce perform and open the show. The Grammy's are the biggest night in music and opening performances are supposed to be epic and should set the tone for the other performers. I shouldn't be able to point to a single performance and say that it was better than the opening act.

Questions.....

Was this an epic performance or a mediocre one being passed off as something epic? Was this an appropriate performance for the Grammy Awards?

Give us your thoughts....
