Uh-Oh! Did Beyonce Steal Billboard Performance From An Italian Artist? Video Proof!

It seems Beyonce’s Billboard Music Award Performance that Stephen Hill was saying was the best since Michael Jackson’s Motown 25 Moment may have been copied from an Italian performer.

Lorella Cuccarini did almost the exact same performance last year with the wings sprouting and the drums along with a stick coming out of nowhere. We are told the same company was used for both performances but does that make it right to use another singer’s performance exactly the same?

    Beyonce admitted she copied. She responded to BillBoard by saying she was shown Cuccarini’s visuals and her team contacted the original design company who then did the same for her. She said she was “inspired” by Cuccarini’s design and basically incorporated it in her act. Too bad she incorporated like 90% of it. Swaggerjacker – yes! Original – NO.

    How do you know what it means to be this big in the game and what that means. Where does it say that you can’t use technology out there. So what! Paying homage. Copying. Taking something to next level. It doesn’t matter. Even the dance moves that she uses in the video and performance is copied. She is paying homage to the dance troop Tofo Tofo from Mozambique.

    Michael Jackson was BIG in the game and he copied the moonwalk from streetdancers… Know your history… The fact that he copied it doesn’t make his Motown performance any less spectacular… but then again, he didn’t have the blogs to compete with at the time…

    Lady Gaga wouldn’t do it… Have you not heard “Born This Way”… it’s straight Madonna…. I like the website but don’t allow your dislike for a song or person to sway the whole picture…

    James, the fact of the matter is that people are saying it is original and it is not. If you are this big in the game, you make sure no one else did it before you. So, those that claim she is being original are wrong and someone used it before her.

    Michael Jackson wouldn’t do it. Shoot, even Lady Gaga wouldn’t do it.

    Gotta waste some more time, but unless she claimed it was her original idea, then there’s nothing to gripe about. Hard to believe she would if another company created the technology… It would be like Al Gore claiming he created the internet…

    I thought Beyonce’s gig was the coolest thing ever. Just because someone else did it first with similar effects doesn’t matter – it wasn’t the same graphics, performance or music, just the concept. Kanye West was the first person I heard use the tone box effect. I’m sure he wasn’t the one who invented it or the first to use it and does that mean everyone else is copying him because others use some company’s technology! Not sure why I wasted my time replying to this…

    Leave it to Beyonce to be unoriginal. Whack
