Continuing her schizophrenic release schedule, Beyonce premiered two new videos: ‘Diva’ and ‘Halo’, the latter being the best song on the whole album.

In ‘Halo’, we see Beyonce play around with lots of light concepts (see what they did there?) and actor Michael Ealy who plays her love interest. It’s a simple video, but it works for this song.



When we first heard ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It), we weren’t loving it. The video, however made us change our minds. It was fun, especially all the YouTube responses (1, 2, 3). ‘Diva’, another ‘Sasha’ song, is one of the most annoying songs on the album (sharing that honour with ‘Video Phone’), however this time around the video fails to turn this into anything remotely interesting.


Bring on ‘Radio’ and ‘Sweet Dreams’. Which are your favourite tracks of Beyonce’s ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ album?

Saturday saw the big finale for 2008’s X-Factor. The three finalists, JLS, Eoghan Quigg and Alexandra Burke started the show off with Christmas songs.  

Eoghan picked ‘I Wish It Could Be Chrismas Every Day’, which was a bit off-key. JLS delivered a great version of Wham ‘Last Christmas’. Strong vocals and the spruced up version pulled this somewhat dated song right back into this decade.


The only one to perform a ballad was Alexandra Burke with ‘Silent Night’. We think she should have picked something more upbeat (‘All I want for Christmas’ by Mariah anyone?)

After the Christmas solos it was time to bring out the star power. Eoghan was joined on stage by fellow Irishmen Boyzone on ‘Picture of You’.

JLS teamed up with Westlife on ‘Flying Without Wings’. How many people are on that stage?

And Alexandra had the pleasure of performing the Dreamgirls track ‘Listen’ vocal powerhouse Beyonce. The sheer presence of Bee proved to be a bit too much for Alexandra. Adorable.

After all that star power, the acts had to finish the show on their own. Eoghan finished with ‘We're all in this Together’, JLS with ‘I’m Already There’ and Alexandra with ‘You Are So Beautiful’.

While everyone was voting, Beyonce gave yet another performance of ‘If I Were A Boy’.

Despite the Irish vote, first one out was Eoghan. Which left Alexandra and JLS to battle it out over their deliveries of the winner’s single ‘Halalujah’. The finalists both did a good job on this Leonard Cohen song, but it was Alexandra who really pulled out all the stops. And we’re glad the British public voted in her favour.

Congrats Alexandra!

Lily Allen covers Womanizer

First she backs Britney up over her alleged ‘miming’ on the X-Factor, now Lily Allen shows her love for Ms Spears by covering Womanizer. As unlikely as it sounds, her version really works! Enjoy.

Oh and Ladyhawke covered the same song for Radio 1's Live Lounge. Not as great. What do you think of these covers?

After playing on almost every TV show in the States, it’s now Europe’s turn to feel Sasha’s force. Last night, Beyonce performed on Star Academy, the French answer to American Idol / The X-Factor. She kicked off with ‘If I Were a Boy’ and finished with ‘Irreplaceable’, which she sang with finalist Alice.

Tonight Beyonce will bring some fierceness to The X-Factor finales and will also duet with Alexandra Burke.

If you want to be a real diva, you'll have to record a song in Spanish. Beyonce did just that with 'If I Were A Boy'. Here is 'Si yo fuera un Chico'.

Knowles will also release the Spanish version of the album in February 2009 ('Yo Soy Sasha Feroz' perhaps?). What do you make of Beyonce's Spanish accent?

Last night Beyonce appeared on Saturday Night Live. Bee (or Sasha) performed her singles ‘Single Ladies’ and ‘If I Were A Boy’. She also found time to film a sketch of the ‘Single Ladies’ video featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg (of last year’s SNL ‘Dick In A Box’ fame) as her backup dancers at the video shoot.

Staying true to her bi-polar single release disorder, Beyonce will simultaneously release ‘Halo’ and ‘Ego’. Check out the new singles, isn’t ‘Halo’ amazing?

Halo
Leona Lewis was rumoured to be too busy to record this song, which didn’t please Simon Cowell. We prefer Beyonce any day.

Ego
Matthew Knowles has hinted a version of Ego featuring Kanye Wes t could be on the cards.

When Beyonce opened the 2008 MTV European Music Awards with the line ‘I'd roll out of bed in the morning and throw on what I wanted and go’, she probably was speaking the truth. What on earth was she wearing? Even crazy sister Solange could have told her that grey rubber dresses do nothing for her thunder thighs…

It was a great performance though.

Judging by these short preview clips, the forthcoming Beyonce album 'I Am...Sasha Fierce' sounds rather good. It's a shame that some of the better tunes, like 'Scared of Lonely' and 'Smash Into You' are only available on the Deluxe version, but then again, Beyonce is a fierce businesswoman.

Is Beyonce Sasha Fierce
As noted by Sam over at That Grape Juice, it seems like Beyonce might be brewing up a little surprise for us.

A website and MySpace page emerged in July asking, 'Who Is Sasha Fierce?', though both have suddenly risen to prominence over the weekend (coinciding with the launch of B's two new videos, 'If I Were A Boy' and 'Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)'.)  Beyonce has also claimed in the past that she has a tough onstage alter-ego named Sasha.

The Sasha Fierce logo on both sites uses an uncannily similar typeface to Beyonce's new artwork, with the former being black and the latter white.

Speculation that a double album could be in the pipeline is already spreading, though at this stage it could just be a simple marketing ploy to get the bloggers, er, blogging (mission accomplished, if so.)

Oh, and regarding the identity of Sasha - that will probably be answered in November when Beyonce's new album 'I Am' is released (do you see what she’s done there?).
