The 56th annual award show kicked off with the Queen Bey provocatively straddling a chair with her back to the audience showing off her brilliant behind. The star sported a black thong complete with lined panty hose and a sheer bustier. Her hair was cropped and wet, giving off a sexy “Flash Dance” look.
While the song “Drunk in Love” contains a verse for Jay Z, the live Grammy collaboration was only confirmed a few days prior in a CBS commercial.
The performance continued as Beyoncé slithered on top of her chair, rocking her hips and shooting out dangerous glances into the audience. The stage belonged to her and the audience fell victim as well.
Around three minutes into the song, Jay Z charged the stage ready to join his other half. Beyonce stood up, taking her place alongside the chair allowing her husband to take the stage. She danced patiently behind him, careful not to give away too much as he performed.
The audience simply couldn’t stand the chemistry, screaming and chanting for the two who were clearly in love. She was captivated by him just like the audience was by her.
While some people were mesmerized by the opening performance, others were outraged saying the act was just too provocative.

If Beyoncé can dress in revealing clothing and dance provocatively – why the hell can't Miley – or ANY celeb/ woman for that matter?! Ridic

I thought Beyoncé was a good role model until now. Is this how "Queens" act? pic.twitter.com/a8dUTkarAf

Were you offended by sultry performance or did you view it as just that-as a performance?
