Beyonce stunned the crowd at the Brit Awards on Feb. 19, surprising them with the first TV performance of her new hit song ‘XO.’
According to HollywoodLife.com, Beyonce hit the stage at London’s O2 Arena looking like a full-on mermaid in a floor-length, shiny green gown, and stuck to the basics as she belted out her hit “XO” — a song that clearly seems to be an ode to Jay Z!
It was a great move for Beyonce, who was performing “XO” for the very first time in front of a live, televised audience. She didn’t go for theatrics in the performance (minus those fireworks), instead relying on her voice and hypnotic stage presence to sell her latest hit. Of course, the gown — which also featured cut-out mesh sleeves — also told a pretty sexy story.
Bey’s BRITs performance was actually supposed to be kept secret, and was only revealed earlier in the day when host James Carden shared the news on BBC Radio.
