Tuned In: Beyonce And The Roots Perform “Countdown” Together!

by (@kat_george)

If you want to make Beyoncé slightly more epic, just add The Roots. We know this because that’s exactly what happened this weekend on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Performing “Countdown,” Beyoncé foregoes her signature hyper-choreographed moves in favor of a more subdued, sexy performance. And it’s pretty damn sexy — even when the girl isn’t really moving, damn, can she move! Complete with hip-defining costume and wind machine, Bey proves why she’s the King; even with an amazing band (and they are amazing) like The Roots behind her, all you can think while watching is “Oh Bey!”

(NOTE: For those of you wondering why she looks not-at-all preggo in this video, it’s because this performance was taped over the summer and just aired for the first time on Friday night. H/T to Matt Perpetua for the scoop.)
