Did Beyonce and Jay Z’s Grammy Peformance Live Up to the Hype?

Last week, rumors started swirling that King Jay and Queen Bey would not only be performing on the 2014 Grammy Awards, but they would christen the night with an opening performance.

Well, it was confirmed tonight (Jan. 26) when, sure enough, the power duo took to the stage. The performance was satisfactory. We expected, with the hit-making couple’s a history and chemistry, an impactful memory, but it seemed like something was missing.

Maybe they were simply attempting to recreate the “Drunk in Love” video, in which Beyonce turned on the sexy and drunkenly seduces her hubby (wet hair and all). Maybe it’s the song itself: “Drunk in Love” is such a bass-heavy, vibey song meant for getting hyped and turning up. Is there only so much you can do performance-wise with this song?

In case you missed it, peep it below and sound off…what’s your take on Bey and Jay’s opening Grammy performance?
