As a person who 300+ shows in my 20s, I’ve been sitting here for an hour trying to figure out how Beyoncé’s team did that show. A one time performance? On a festival stage with one hour to complete load-in? With perfect everything — sound, choreography, CAMERA, live editing…
At least 1,000 people worked that show. And I’m not counting the festival staff. I mean her show. On stage, backstage, load-in, production, filming, streaming. How in the world? How? No, really, how?
Live performance TV shows are *never* this good. All the camera work & switching was finely planned and rehearsed (up to the last song, clearly the last song was not). This was two hours. On a *borrowed* stage. A one time shot. They did this ONCE? What? HOW? Every bit perfect.
