“Countdown” F. The Roots (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    Way before Beyonce premiered the controversial video for “Countdown” and before she let us all know she was pregnant at the VMAs, she performed the 4 single live on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Bey was actually on the Fallon stage way back in July, when she also ran through “Best Thing I Never Had” with the Roots. But for some reason, their performance of “Countdown” was held until last night’s episode. Huh. Well, we’re finally seeing it now and it’s just as tight musically as “Best Thing I Never Had,” if not even more so. The Roots really can do anything, y’all, and Bey’s not so bad herself. You can watch the performance below. [RR]
