Beyonce's Mrs. Carter World Tour Hits Barclays, Impresses With Intensity And Royal Self-Confidence

Beyonce said she was "nervous" to perform Saturday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, the house that husband Jay Z helped build and famously christened. Naturally, she had nothing to fear. 

In a rollicking set spanning much of her discography, Beyonce lived up to her royal nickname, playing Queen B to an eager audience that was more than happy to indulge her in celebrating herself. 

The show was chopped up by pre-filmed scenes and mini-movies, convenient yet intricate mood and tempo shifts that also allowed for the singer to cycle through her many outfits. The always regal clips most often saw the singer in the powder-faced look that accompanied the tour's announcement (a get up that's heavily influenced by Estonian singer Kerli), though the MIA-esque visuals for as of the still unreleased "Grown Woman" were a very welcome reprieve from the palace porn. 

Among the few surprises were a rework of "If I Were a Boy" that featured the instantly recognizable strings of The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony," Beyonce winking and jiggling her underarms when she mentioned her "flaws" and glimpses of dance-trap courtesy of Diplo's "Express Yourself" and Baauer's "Harlem Shake." At one point, she sang over the instrumental to "Clique," a Kanye West, Jay Z and Big Sean song that Jay himself performed eight times during his arena-opening residency.
