Beyonce Knowles

People are still buzzing about Beyonce's weekend 1 concert at the 2018 Coachella "Beychella" Music Festival on Saturday. Beyonce plans to switch things up for her next Coachella concert this weekend, according to one of her dancers.

The 37-year-old pop singer received worldwide praise for her stunning live performance that nearly broke the Internet last Saturday.

One of her dancers tells Variety.com exclusively that the mother-of-3 plans to switch things up for her next concert.

“Yeah, we’re switching up a couple things, so there could still be a wow factor,” teased Jo’Artis Mijo Ratti, who was onstage during Beyonce's weekend 1 performance.

The dancer, who has also worked with Madonna and Kelly Rowland, said Beyonce is a a professional who killed her dance moves during rehearsals.

“She kills the moves just as hard as the best girl that’s doing the choreography,” Ratti recalled of the rehearsals. “It makes everybody in the production as a whole want to step their game up."

Ratti, who auditioned in December, said Beyonce's work ethic during rehearsals is something you have to see to believe. He said she put in 10-14 hour workdays, very similar to Madonna who came to work fully prepared for rehearsals.

"Some jobs you might chill - craft services, read a book, hop on your phone — for a couple hours, but not while we were there [with Beyonce]. We were getting put to use with ideas, fitting, wardrobe, video blocking. It could be really overwhelming, but luckily, it wasn’t my first rodeo."

Ratti also mentioned that Beyoncé’s “army of female dancers” were the best he had seen in his career.

He added that Beyonce's husband JAY-Z attended rehearsals frequently and even hyped up the dancers. “I’m an underground man, so I never thought that I would be at rehearsals busting a move, and Jay-Z is out here hyping me up,” Ratti recalled. “That’s crazy, I would have never thought [he] was a regular [presence] at her rehearsals.”

Ratti said Beyonce was completely hands on and she took a no-nonsense approach to rehearsals. There are rumors that several dancers were fired during the Coachella rehearsals.

He added that Beyonce was a nurturer who took a personal interest in her dancers. He was impressed with her dedication to her craft.

“She’s like an auntie,” he said. “Super kind and very particular about what she wants. It made me do even better because I understand that she's a real artist. She's not just letting somebody take over her vision.”

Regarding the concert livestream that nearly broke the Internet on Saturday, a rep told Variety.com that presently there is no official (meaning legal) website streaming Beyonce's weekend 2 concert.

    no she doesn't *always* sing live. She lipsynced the National Anthem at the 2012 Inauguration, for example. It's not a big deal to lip sync but just be honest.

  • sunni_daze

    And add that pop lock

  • MyaCompton

    I love Beyoncé I do but that performance wasn’t nothing I haven’t seen her already do!! Smh I don’t get how idiots can base one performance she did and label her the greatest of all time ?? No that’s bs!!! MJ had hundreds of performances that out did what she did!!! And MJ didn’t need bands or anything on stage with him he was just that mesmerizing all by himself!! He had signature moves that are still idiolize to this very day!! That’s POWER!! The industry has a Fd way in trying to erase legends and trying to replace them with mediocre artist that can’t even compare to the impact those legends made upon people!!

  • starbright9449

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    It's going to be the same ol choreography and wig swinging..

  • mona Stewart

    I saw on youtube where Grace Cathedral Church in San Francisco is having a "Beyoncé Mass" on April 25. I went to the church's website, it said It is supposed to be for "marginalized and forgotten--particularly black females."

  • Marquita

    Queen Bey is the greatest of ll time. Whoever don't like her must be fucked up in the head.

  • Marquita

    Yousa wack ass bitch. Faking about bein part of the Hive.

  • Smith Jane

    Normally, I would agree, but, Beyoncé did her thing! The performance was flawless.

  • Kemi

    This made my day at work...going home to listen to Prince ?. He was the real deal !!!!

  • Rico768

    But why you have to come at her like that? U silly bitch going hard for someone not paying your bills or doing anything for you except taking your money.
    She gave an opinion respect it. And fuck your shady clapback b4you try

  • Karen Brady

    you said that.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Shut up

  • Ang

    Finally, someone said it. I was wondering if I was living in an alternate universe. People exaggerate too much about Beyoncé. I don't think people even believe that mess they say on SM. She's a good performer and has a lot of energy but she's far from being labeled one of the best performers of all time. She is very talented but her greatness is exaggerated due to the overall level of talent in the industry being lower than ever. Up until the mid 2000s there was always multiple superstars and talented artists in the industry. In the 80s and 90s you had MJ, Prince, Janet, Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, Bowie, and a lot more at the same time with huge careers and huge fanbases. Before that you had Tina, Chaka, Diana Ross, etc all bringing it. Now, people act like Beyoncé is the first superstar on earth just because she's the only one around doing big shows.

    The Beyhive is just weird. They act like it hurts them personally if someone isn't feeling Beyoncé. Attacking people for not liking your favorite artist doesn't make any sense at all.

    I don't care who doesn't like this comment. Don't wast you're time trying to come for me because I do not care.

  • the guest

    This is beautiful.

  • the guest

    Beyonce is very talented and hard working. Her success is genius and astonishing. I love that she married Jay Z and has a black family when Hollywood expected her to marry white. I just have a hard time reconciling the blonde weaves with problackness. No hate at all. Just trying to make sense of it.

  • Yetunde

    I get your point. I feel the same about the blonde wigs too.

  • abby500

    What??? Coachella is still going on???

  • Rico768

    You all have me smiling and feeling good about myself. Thought I was the only adult with uncles 8 and 11 years old?

  • Rico768

    ??sandy mae...

    We should have an appreciation cyber event for her this Christmas?

  • the guest

    The blonde weave looks good on Beyonce. She carries it well. I just wonder does she feel more beautiful with a blonde weave or does she feel like she needs to have the blonde weave to feel beautiful.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Harsh

  • Shenanigans1

    Yeah it’s a two weekend thing. Everyone performs again, at the same time the very next weekend.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    NO.ONE.EVER. Thought she would marry white. Stop it.

  • davine puddin

    For some reason i dont think jay cheated on bey
    I think its just co-marketing on their part. I like them as a family but it would be nice to see the twins now and how lil blu scolding and teaching them. Like that lil girl teaching her lil sis how to read than asks her mother did her child support hit yet.

  • ebonics
  • Kimberly King

    Don't forget her leotards. She has one in every different color.

  • Kimberly King

    I had to get on some loser on IG who said "all Rihanna does is pussy pop, Bey actually sings." Like uh.... Bey STAYS pussy popping on stage.

  • kekeb

    Man Beyonce got it!!!! Period
