Beyoncé - BB&T Center, Sunrise - July 9


BB&T Center, Sunrise

July 9

You could divide Beyoncé's performance at the BB&T Center into two parts: the beginning of the night, when everyone was getting up to pee, and the end of the night, when everyone looked like they had to pee but were not running to the bathroom.

The evening started out with endless promos for everything Bey is slinging -- Goodwill donations, girl power with Hillary Clinton, Pepsi, her very own perfume, H&M... Did we miss anything? Probably. The diva is keeping busy putting her mug on everything short of a Beyoncé-inspired Depends line.

The fans never swayed in their devotion, but the first half of her actual performance played out like a Lifetime holiday movie, slow and sappy. But by about halfway through, it was clear the audience was going home hoarse and happy.

Instead of running you through the night, a show you might have already seen, here is a biting breakdown of her Mrs. Carter World Tour show, Wiki style.
