Beyonce surprised the Grammy audience with a nod to a fellow musical diva.
Amidst her performance of “If I were a Boy,” Beyonce suddenly broke into the angry Alanis Morissette anthem “You Oughta Know” Sunday night (Jan. 31).
A sample of the lyrics:
And I’m here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know
Beyonce had been owning the stage already, but with the song switch, the dance moves became even more frenetic.
The girl sure knows how to entertain. The video doesn’t do the performance justice.
Beyonce had already won four Grammys pre-telecast and had just nabbed the best song Grammy for “Single Ladies” before launching into the performance.
“You Oughta Know” earned Morissette a Grammy nomination for song of the year, but lost out to Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose.”
We were wowed. What about you?
