Bey looks a piping hot mess here while in character as the strung out Etta James. Judging by how utterly f*cked up she looks, perhaps there may be some truth to the Oscar buzz around her performance. We shall see.
Check out Bey singing Etta James’ song “At Last.”
EVEN ON HER WORST DAY, SHE STILL COULD GET IT…
Well Etta was on that shyt so I guess she looks appropriate for the part
Wow. I am pretty speechless on this one.
Its them damn “deep” roles!!
Hope she does well. XD
Ugghh! They should have her lip synching. She does not do this song ANY justice!
Sorry folks for hatin’, but Etta is the truth.
wow…she looks a hot stanky mess…i gotta see this movie
Ha! I can hear Rick James saying that right now!
I wonder if this is what she looks like in the morning without hair and make-up. I’ll give it to her, she seems to be in character so maybe she’s stepped up her acting game.
NOT BETTER THEN Etta!!!!!!!!!!!
Etta did it betta.
Beyonce’s voice is indeed beautiful….
But it doesn’t have the same feel Etta gave it…naturally so…
@ Hollywood BS
You’re right, the song will be nominated for an Oscar. I still think it’s a horrible rendition though and I’m a Stan.
Ooh, John, get out of my head!
DAMN SHE LOOK LIKE A SLOB IN THAT FIRST PICTURE
Etta is certainly the truth and I am a true Etta James fan………but, Bey is handling that song.
Reading the above comments shows she accomplished her mission for the part.
Nice song and I will be going to the movie to see her..
Remember people it’s a scene from a movie!
she is cute as hell…LOL
@ Samira I agree with you whole heartedly I have always LOVED this song the (ETTA VERSION) and Beyonce does not come close to the same delivery and passion when she sings it not even a little bit. I am very disappoineted 😦 but what else is to be expected with that song ETTA set the bar high!
Yeah she looks pretty bad in these pics. That still doesn’t mean she does a good job playing the part. Only time will tell. She sounds decent on the track, but not as powerful as Etta.
It’s called a cover?? SO don’t you think that we should have the felling that we have when we hear Etta sing it? I love Bey voice but I don’t think she gave this song justice.
STOP STEALING BEYONCEWORLD PICTURES. TAKE YOUR OWN DANG PICS!
Hmmm, don’t like Bey’s version. The original is much more soulful and moving. Hope the movie does well and that her acting is on point so that she can finally win an award. 🙂
Of course it won’t be sung EXACTLY like Etta did, but Beyonce is supposed to ACT as Etta, and the goal is to make us forget that we’re watching/listening to Beyonce. And people are supposed to critic her performance.
I personally happen to want to marry Beyonce’s voice box, but I still think it doesn’t feel very reminiscent of Etta.
