Beyonce Grammys

Singer Ledisi's fans protested when the Grammy's chose burlesque singer Beyonce to sing the Negro spiritual "Take My Hand, Precious Lord" from the movie 'Selma'. The song was originally performed with raw emotion by Ledisi. But the hand of fate intervened during Beyonce's Grammy performance and her opening notes fell flat as Bey struggled with her limited vocal range. She was never able to fully recover after flubbing her opening notes. Most social media users agreed that Beyonce's version paled in comparison to Ledisi's excellent cover of Mahalia Jackson's "Precious Lord" in the movie 'Selma'.

Watch the video after the break.

Ledisi

During her red carpet interview with ET's Kevin Frazier Ledisi said she had no idea why Beyonce was chosen over her to sing "Precious Lord". But it's obvious the Grammy's chose Beyonce over Ledisi because Bey is light skinned and fits the white standard of black beauty.

Beyonce's husband, aging rapper Jay Z loves her even when she makes a mockery of one of the greatest gospel songs of all time.

    Well somebody lying. Cause this story all over the place.

    Meanwhile John Legend, who joins Common later this evening to perform their Oscar-nominated song "Glory," revealed to ET that Beyonce approached them about singing "Precious Lord, Take My Hand."

    "We were actually approached by Beyonce. She wanted to do an intro to our performance and introduce us," Legend told Kevin. "You don't really say no to Beyonce if she asks to perform with you."

    @ dub
    but I don't think she even factored in ledisi. not to re-hash from the Belinda jenner post, but I think she got gassed up tryna recreate a memory from her childhood. although I would have looooooved to hear ledisi sing it, I agree with time that the grammy's agreed to bey singing it cuz it would guarantee folks stayed til the end and viewers would tune in for bey rather than ledisi.

    and 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.

    30 years from now people will still listen to Beck's album and it will stand up to time.....30 years Beyonce's album will have no relevance outside it's time and space.

    Beyonce wanted to make up for her and Jay Z being called a pimp and ho act at last years Grammys. John Legend the true queen saying nobody says no to Beyonce is exactly what is wrong with Black people. Always have to put people on pedestals in strange ways and acting like theres only one person in the world. I don’t listen to Beck but I’m sure his album was solid. Beyonce can’t win everything. That mentality has Black people running up behind crooked preachers driving Bentleys, talking about I love my pastor. Sometimes as a people, we act like children…..

    well, you know that's a regular sunday in church. she coulda probably fugged with one of the "new jacks" like yolanda (not really but...) but mahalia?? awww HELL NAW! she ain't never had to drink outta the "black" fountain.

  • https://twitter.com/Mizz_Dallas mizzdallas

    I think people have a problem with Bey Being inconsiderate of Ledisi feelings. This could've open new fan base for Ledisi, how many times have we seen an all yt band or duo that we never heard before? By them coming onto the Grammys they reached new fanbase.

    Ledisi response was graceful and you can tell it hurt her. Her time will come!!

    Folks have got it fukked up. Beck been around before Beyonce even POPPED OFF as a SOLO ARTIST!

    I know Bey gets the crowd going but where is the humble, "I don't deserve this", let me make Taylor Swift feel better about herself Bey? Bey know she shouldn't have sang that song, why not Ledisi sing it. And I get what everyone is saying about Bey having that "weight" but once upon a time Bey didn't have that "weight". She was regular Black wearing them Tacky Tina creations in Destiny's Child but somebody put her on.

  • whitty hutton

    @ hairlova,

    I agree but on the flip side, there are just as many people who may feel those same artists you listed couldn't sing their way out of a paper bag. that's not my opinion, but for as many different artists and singing styles as there are, there are a gazillion more opinions about who can sing, can't sing, has soul, etc.

    for example, I have a love/hate with Yolanda Adams and Mary Mary...and even the great Shirley Caesar. sometimes I think their voices are downright angelic and sometimes I want them to shut up and never sing another note.

    That's for now. Not everyone that sells music now, will be in rotation years from now. Example most of us listen to the music our parents listened to 30+ yrs ago, you know why? Because it has substance. It was relatable then and it is now, and will be for years to come. Who in the hawl gonna be sing "Partna let me upgrade youuu" or "We be all night, ahhhhh" ain't nobody gonna wanna hear that. Hell I no longer wanna her that.

  • Gigi26

    And Beyonce asking John to perform that song just confirmed why some folk don't fukk with Bey the long way, that was a snake ass move. She knows it. Keep doing shyt like that, it'll come to bite you in the ass boo. Her and Jay are perfect together, both are some fukkin snakes.

    On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, her rendition of Precious Lord gets a 6.5 from me. Oversung. Overdone. But hey. This is the public's saviour it seems... :shrugs:

  • whitty hutton

    yall missing the point man, I tell ya. bey didn't even think about ledisi when she contacted john/common and asked to sing. she saw Selma or heard the soundtrack, and instantly thought about her mamma singing that same song when she was a kid. it had nothing to do with ledisi and everything to do with bey. every selfish act isn't done to slight another person. selfish is all about self, not about other folks.

    @Whitty I can agree there are times that those I have listed and others I can do without. But most times there is just something in there voice that is there. Same thing with Monica. We can say whatever about her but that child voice is something. It just has something in it, and everyone is not gifted in that way. Sorry

    Morning Row-Saysss!! :yahoo:
    I know I said this last night but heck I'll say it again- that was not the song for Be-yaki :nono: I understand the Granmys wanting ratings, money, publicity, etc - but that wasn't it. I'm not a Stan but a fan of Bey, and the same for Ledisi. But there is a clear vocal difference between the two singing the song. And the daym Hive got on my nerves last night saying that Bey didn't steal the song- no she didn't- what she did do was take away the opportunity for Ledisi to GET more exposure. Is this how we not make breakout stars- or recognize talent- isn't there usually a seasoned artist that helps out the lesser known. Imo, Bey should have done that for her. But h3ll it ain't like she sitting back reading the comments, and she prob don't give a daym about how she butchered up the song.

    There are A LOT of Beyonce songs I would listen to in thirty years. I don't think she's the most talented, but I don't think her music is bad. She actually has some really good songs IMO. I don't think it's always the person with the most talent who wins out, but the person who works the hardest and has spark. With that said, what she did to Ledisi was just too wrong. I wonder about people who always step over others, and then act like they don't know what they're doing :huh:

    Morning, ALL! :hi:

    I didn't watch the Grammys...can't tell you the last time I watched an award show.

    At any rate, I heard her performance on the radio and though she can sing, this wasn't a good song for her vocally. I think she tried to do too much to sing the song. This song, in particular, is song with raw emotion from deep within and not from trying to put bravado on lyrics that don't need it. IMO

    I have been rocking Ledisi since 1999 when I heard Take Time! She has always been underrated, but has tremendous talent!

    Dap I agree. But folks got the word CLASSIC fukked up. Jenie got it right, 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 Bey's music? Do they attach that shyt to movements? Like 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.

    So yall telling me yall/America wouldn’t have stayed up to watch Beyonce do her own song, and the Selma group coulda been inserted in say…the middle of the show? In fact, they coulda took one of Kanye spots. We didn’t need to see him dos times.

    by KDub on Feb 9, 2015 at 9:20 am
    -----------
    Hey Dub, yes I would've stayed up to watch Ledisi's performance. I was flipping back and forth so that I could support all the "colored" performances- it's black history ain't it :lol:
    But no seriously, I would've stayed up to watch. The movie was a great film and it would've been awesome for Ledisi's to get the credit she deserved from being on the sound track. I also feel like she would've moved the crowd before John/common and the whole performance could've had a bigger impact on the audience. Because I was so disappointed in Bey messing up one of my favorites I didn't even pay attention to John and Common performing.
    I get that Bey wanted to draw from a memory of her mother, I really do, but her azz ain't even apart of the movie.
    Now, once again, let me shut my mouth because what I'm saying is only falling on deaths ear over at her camp. They don't give two nickels what the public thinks. Next thing you know she'll be putting out a song called Wawa or Turkey Hill

  • KDub

    I tolerate Beyonce b/c she IS forced down our throats. Told yall that incident I turned it to FOUR stations and she was on EVERY ONE and 3 of em were XM stations.

    But as far as her work ethic and hustle etc.? If we call stepping on folks to make it, then I dont get down with that. :no: And she is at the point in her career that WHY does she HAVE to do THAT? :waiting: Why was in needed for her to BE on there in THAT capacity last night?

    Again, Ledisi and the Selma crew coulda been in the middle.
    Bey coulda STILL went LAST to gather in viewership (which again I think is a crock of ish. She went FIRST last year) cause EVERY BODY HAS SAID they woulda watched her REGARDLESS, and did HER CURRENT SONG.

    yea she has damn sickle cell I hate this disease omg it has robbed my child of so much. I feel guilty but at the end of the day her dad did not know he had one of the traits though I've known my whole life that I did. We had an older woman mentoring us for awhile who has 4 kids with SSD but she moved out of state smh. I'm now pretty much connecting with people through the Facebook sickle cell groups. And yea I've been cutting down the sweets, getting her more vegetables and good fats and protein BC she's skinny as a rail but its hard for them to pick up weight.

  • sassyshe

    5 years ago Ledisi would have performed that song however the Grammy has been slipping in the ratings and 4 years ago CBS told them come up with something or else we would have to drop you. Thus they started focusing on the younger audience which is why Bey was asked to perform. Bey knows how to get her demands so the right thing wouldve been to ask Ledisi to perform however that wouldve been like having Jennifer Hudson on dreamgirls, someone with a much wider vocal range wouldve stolen her thunder and we all know Bey is not having that

    @ Blanche,

    does she have SS or SC sickle cell disease? kids with SS tend to have more frequent and severe crises than those with SC. holistic and alternative therapies have been found to be extremely beneficial and in some cases life-saving. does she take a "green" supplement to help oxygenate her red blood cells? spirulina, chlorophyll, wheatgrass, etc. fall in the category of green superfoods that help cleanse the blood and help form healthy red blood cells. lots of water, not juice, but plain water is crucial for sicklers year-round.

    also, on the traditional medicine side, my nephew takes Hydroxyurea daily. It was initially developed as a chemotherapy drug, but scientists found it helped the "sickled" cells to not be so sticky and lowered the frequency and severity of pain crises.

    re: kayla on bring it
    I've said it before, I think she had a baby cuz they practice just about year-round. her momma should at least have her costumes altered to be more flattering to her "new" body shape. don't set your kids up to be ridiculed by ignoring the fact that she's obviously gained a lot of weight and doesn't look the same as she did last season in the costumes.

    @ Blanche,

    hubby didn't find out he had sickle trait until we got our marriage license down to the courthouse. back then, blood tests were mandatory and BOTH his parents swear neither of them have the trait - LIARS! one of them has it. when we went for fertility testing, it was confirmed again that both of us have the trait, which is one of the reasons I wasn't too bent out of shape about the infertility issues we have.

    sicklers tend to be smaller and thinner than other kids, as well. although my nephew-son did have a growth spurt his junior and senior years of high school. he's now in the "normal" range for his age. it'll all work out. just keep praying and having faith, and doing what is within your control such as diet, rest, exercise, etc. my cousin's daughter stayed in the hospital with crises as a small child, but she's at Spelman College now and doing much better. you all are def in my prayers.

    @ Blanche
    sickle beta thalassemia...I recently learned about that at a sickle cell event where a doctor from Emory was the keynote speaker. believe it or not, sickle cell is lumped into the "blood disorder" category much like cancer, leukemia, and the like. scientists see all of those diseases as blood disorders so the treatments for all are becoming integrated. I saw someone mentioned blood transfusion, which is helpful in some cases but not all. like you said, it's a tiresome, stressful battle but you're built for it. god gives us grace and strength for all life's trials and tribulations.

    If Bey is has classic songs, how come she always singing other artists songs at prestige events?

    **********

    Aybe that's what the Baracks wanted to hear :shrug: Are there any other prestigious events other than that one that you are referencing? She did the National Anthem at the Inaugaration...not sure what else she could have replaced that with :lol: Michelle did a whole Move Your Body campaign around Get Me Bodied. :lol:

    We are >>>here<<<…You two are speaking some truth on here.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Folks dont be wanting to call a spade a spade. I am not sure what kind of fans Bey got. Ride or die doesn't encompass it. :no:

    One of me and @Aroth BFF's is Whitney's BIGGEST fan. Will admit in a MINUTE Whitney was a head, didnt write nah song of her own until "My Love Is Your Love" era etc. Everyone knows I walk through hot coals for Mariah. But the hoe is a drunkard and has straight RUINED 29 octaves. I am an OLD school Aretha fan, but her titties hang to her knee caps. I be the FIRST one to throw them under the bus. *Bloop bloop* There go that bus. Dub is driving :steer: And will be over here with the Mariah Pandora station ON!

    Bey was DEAD azz wrong last night, but they trying to justify it. Boggles my mind. :shrug:

    I think Bruce was texting and driving. That car looked really bad too :no:

    *******

    :cosign: which makes it even more hilarious.

    But I as a stan/fan said Ledisi should have performed the song. Except she didn't so :shrug:

    MisTaken: So thick :buttshake: she make everybody else in the room so uncomfortable :winky: says: While I do think BEYONCÉ has music that will last years from now (Love on Top) I did chuckle at this.

    bey had backup dancers! lord, lemme get on up to the next post!

    Never saw the hype. I am not a you gotta be dancing around the stage type music lover. I am just that. A MUSIC lover. All genres. Best performer of last night to ME was 60 year old Annie Lennox and damn near acapella Usher. I never liked FEMALE singers to entertain me. If you gonna dance, dance that big azz heavy bass guitar around the stage like Teena Marie did. Now that there ish is impressive.

  • SugarFoot

    I didnt watch, I dont have time for that phuckery :nono:

    But who made Bey a choir robe outta the left over material from Jodeci's Come and Talk To Me Video :facepalm:

    Hey yall :wave:

    *scrolls up for the good, bad, and ugly from the show* :popcorn:

  • SuthernBelle4

    @KDub no the kids don't :rofl: They be hungry.
    @whitty huton I don't think that little girl was pregnant though because her mom was a teen mom, and I don't think they would be that 'shamed bout it unless Lifetime got some sort of clause. Now that birth control theory may be right!

    Yes y'all Ms. D got rid of all them extra teefs and they all white and pearly

    :newpost: I've sitting upstairs waiting to join in and Yall still down here :lol:

  • SugarFoot

    If Bey would've sung her own music, what song could she use 7/11 :facepalm: The entire song is a chorus :rofl:

    I bet they wont let her do a country song and bring out Taylor Swift :crying:

  • SugarFoot

    She sounded HAWRIBLE. Not narry note she sang made me want to kick off my shoes and run down the isles of the church, fall out, speak in tongues and make the uRshers throw the white sheet over me. Precious Lawd is supposed to make you wanna do all of these things.
    _________
    Hey Shirley :wave: I agree Precious Lawd should have you running around like Juanita Bynum screaming "NO MORE SHEETS!!" :rules:

  • dancerbee93

    boring performance...No lackluster..I think we would have been ok if she was half naked humping chairs and the floor LOL Maybe that's what everybody was waiting on :haha:

  • ProfessorX
