Beyonce Knowles has been hailed as one of the best live performers of all time and a renowned Hollywood producer has placed the singer on par with the late Michael Jackson.
Beyonce, 30, took to the stage at The Revel in Atlantic City, N.J., to perform four sold-out shows and while fans have praised her performances it was Terius Youngdell Nash- also known by his stage name The Dream- who recently made the unexpected comparison after watching one of her shows.
"Beyonce Knowles may very well be the baddest [expletive] to hit the stage live since MJ! Period! Point Blank," The Dream tweeted.
Beyonce's first concert since giving birth to Blue Ivy in January attracted a number of celebrities including Queen Latifah and Jennifer Hudson.
"Omg best memorial day ever! Glad I spent it at @Revelresorts at queen B concert ! Flawless!!" Hudson tweeted.
Also in attendance was Kelly Rowland, Selita Ebanks, First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia.Like us on Facebook
Beyonce's husband Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter also took to Twitter to praise his wife of four years.
"Beyonce Is The Best Performer in the world. Period," Jay-Z tweeted.
Fans of the "Single Ladies" singer immediately took to Twitter after The Dream's tweet, and while some agreed, others did not.
"You can't compare Beyoncé & Michael Jackson. You just CAN'T !!!" Dillen Arnolds tweeted.
"I love beyonce' but he was wrong for saying she's a better performer than Michael Jackson," Al G. Armstead tweeted.
"Beyoncé is not the Michael Jackson of our generation. Beyoncé is Beyoncé, who is BETTER than Michael Jackson," Ian X10 tweeted.
Beyonce released a 5-and-a-half minute long video prior to her concerts in which the singer admitted that she was "nervous" about returning to the stage after giving birth.
"It is exciting. I'm feeling a little nervous. I'm enjoying being a mother so it's like going back to my old job and it's a little strange but it's important that you don't lose yourself … that you have your own passions and I'm back to work. I'm back to business," she said in the candid video.
I like Beyonce, but NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
