DVD Review: Beyoncé Live at Roseland - Elements of 4

By  January 22, 2012

At first glance, it seems Beyonce is going to sing lots of songs on the Live at Roseland: Elements of 4 DVD. Technically, the Destiny's Child and her older solo hits are sung as listed in the first half. But here's the catch - most of them lasted between 20 seconds to a minute, with lots of banter and video footage intertwined in between.

The scene that pulled at my heartstrings was where she was shown hugging a young fan during Irreplaceable where she did not do a single note of it (but that's not the point). He is one of her biggest fans and appeared to be younger than 13. Things became even more sentimental and touching when Beyonce gently suggested that he sing the song.

The second half features tracks from 4 where in contrast to the first half, songs were performed in full. The familiar Beyonce kicks in full throttle here - her All Girl band is off the chain, Bey's voice is out of this world and her dancing is straight up outrageous and unreal. Oh, but what's even more impressive is that she was 5 months pregnant! My favorite performances were Run The World, Rather Die Young, and End of Time. The ballads are amazingly performed with intimacy and the up-tempos feature an amazing set of lights to complete the well-known Beyonce choreography style. The R&B queen is such a dynamic performer and everything she does, she puts more heart and soul in it. She is one of few artists who allows her fans to journey with her through her most memorable experiences and I, as a non-fan, appreciate that.

Can Beyonce do no wrong these days? I truly believe she should give a course on how to do a live show and her first student should be Rihanna. This concert DVD proves her staying power, talent, and vocal ability.
