Beyoncé Is Already Practicing For Her Concerts In Brazil


The only difference is that later this week in Brazil she will be needing a lot more cops than she did last night at the Grammys.

Btw, Beyoncé set a record last night by becoming the most decorated female on a Grammy night ,with six awards, including song of the year for Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It). Click here for the list of Grammy winners, and here for the red carpet pictures.

Because of the three hour time difference, I only watched the first hour of the show, so I am going to try to watch the rest of the performances online today. I loved Lady Gaga's opening act though.
