Beyoncé Accused of Copying Billboard Awards Performance

  It was just a matter of time before someone claimed that Beyoncé´s astonishing performance at the Billboard Awards was copied from someone else.

 Lets face it, Beyoncé isn´t exactly the most original artist out there, (just check out Youtube and you´ll find out how many times other artists have "inspired" her in the past)  but we must admit she gave one hell of a performance on Sunday night when she sang and danced to her new single Run The World (Girls).

 However, now there is some proof to the fact she wasn´t as innovative as we thought because it has come to everyone´s attention how Italian pop star Lorella Cuccarini put on an extremely similar performance last year.

 Beyoncé even starts the song with enveloped wings, which is the same image that appears at the end of Cuccarini´s show!

What do you think?  

Should Beyoncé be praised or criticized for her performance?

  1. After watching the video, a few similarities are apparent. However, Beyonce's performance was of better quality. And I don't think she would copy anything without consent.
