Beyonce Sings on 'Oprah' Finale, Accused of Copycat for Billboard Music Awards Performance


Beyonce Knowles


As footage of her performance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' goes viral, Beyonce Knowles is accused of copying an Italian artist for her critically-acclaimed performance at Billboard Music Awards.

"The Oprah Winfrey Show" which features Beyonce Knowles has aired Monday night, May 23 as part of two-episode finale. The R&B diva delivered her first single "Run the World (Girls)", and footage of her performance at Chicago's United Center has landed online.

Wearing a tuxedo leotard, Beyonce stormed the stage and shouted, "Oprah, we can run the world!" She then led an army of sexy, geeky girls and scholarly dancers to an arousing performance. Oprah Winfrey watched from the audience row along with Tom Cruise.

In another news related to Beyonce, the wife of rapper Jay-Z was hit with unfavorable news once again. The "If I Were a Boy" hitmaker was accused of copying Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini for her show stopping performance at Billboard Music Awards on May 22.

Beyonce played with various visual and special effects for the Sunday night show. Her performance caused buzz on the web, drawing positive reviews from critics and fellow celebrities alike. Missy Elliott, Rihanna, Jermaine Dupri, Estelle, LeToya Luckett, Trey Songz, Omarion, Jazmine Sullivan and Taraji P. Henson were in awe after watching Beyonce at the awards show.

Keri Hilson wrote on Twitter, "THAT S**T WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING...BEYONCE...INCREDIBLE!!" Monica posted on her own page, "Beyonce always has known how to bring the house down...what she does takes diligence, dedication & straight up hard work. She be Killing it." Pink also sang praise for her, "Beyonce just KILLED it at the Billboard awards. So original, so rad. Me and @hartluck loved it."

However, the highly-praised performance doesn't look so original after a footage compiling Beyonce and Lorella's performances hit the web for a comparison. The two female artists can be seen strutting their stuff with a huge white effects screen on the background depicting various images which supported their performances.
