Watch Beyonce Semi-Flub The Words To "Bohemian Rhapsody" In Concert
Posted by Videoson 06/21/2011 at 12:45 PM
The latest way that Beyonce Knowles is Not Like Us: she’s apparently never wasted afternoons doing one-woman “Bohemian Rhapsody” karaoke. (We know you have. We also know we have.) The song was on the setlist at a recent concert in Nice to warmup for her Glastonbury, England show, and two words in it have now caused a miniature Internet uproar. Because what can’t cause one?
You can’t see B in this video, but we chose it anyway because for once all the fans obnoxiously singing along have a purpose–you can clearly hear their atonal “put a gun against his head,” whereas Beyonce’s putting a bullet to his head. Ineffective! But also not really that big of a flub, and unlike at least 50 percent of people who’ve ever covered “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Beyonce can sing. And her performances of Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” and Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire” went off without transpositions. Watch them below:
In other videos that haven’t been taken down yet (Beyonce’s working her hardest in this respect), B also did a Destiny’s Child medley, followed by “Telephone” (warning: motion-sickness-inducing footage):
