Beyonce & Jay-Z Needed to Get Off Grammys Stage & Get a Room (VIDEO)

Beyonce Jay-Z Grammy'sThe 2014 Grammys may have just won the award for "shortest time it took for American parents to scream, 'Get to bed' to the kids during an awards show." Beyonce opened the show with a tiny black thong, mile-high fishnets, soaking wet hair, and a Flashdance-style dance on a chair that would have been hot all on its own. But then husband Jay-Z swaggered out to drop his rhymes on "Drunk in Love" and place his hands on his wife's derriere.

Yes, folks, Beyonce let her hubby feel her up on national television while she did a little bump and grind on him. I suppose we're just supposed to be grateful that she didn't stick her tongue out too?

Frankly, I don't think kids should see most awards show, so mine was already off in bed. But I saw plenty of folks -- parents and none -- on Twitter tonight asking why Hova and Bey didn't just GET A ROOM. At the risk of sounding like a prude, I have to agree.

Just because they're married to each other doesn't make the whole bump and grind any more appropriate than Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke's, folks. We didn't need to see all that, at least not at the opening of the show. Beyonce was more or less wearing undies. We could see her whole butt, y'all!

The couple also set off the censors several times, earning bleeps on whole sections of their performance for their curse words.

As a whole, the performance wasn't bad, but it would have probably been a heckuva lot better if it had been held for after 9 p.m.

What do you think? Watch the video and tell us -- was this an appropriate way to open the Grammys?

Blows my mind how this is considered a song. To top it off an opening for the Grammys?

Her performance was totally appropriate for THAT song.  And the Grammys are never safe for young kids!

Puh-lease!! This was NOwhere near as aimless, awkward, raunchy, and plain disturbing as Miley's performance ..

It was...steamy for sure. The whole time, I kept thinking, "Beyonce, you dirty/naughty girl!" But I agree that I don't think it was the best performance to open the show with.

I didn't see anything wrong @ all with this performance! I didnt quite understand how this was even put to a comparison between Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke! It was the Grammys 1, 2, the music has more of a bouncy edge so for those expecting so much dancing or a better performance need to listen to the beats of the music outside of llyrics and her voice! Thirdly, she & Jay are one (married) and this was one of very few live televised performances onstage (not referring to concerts) that they have done where they are allowing viewers to see them more in an intimate and personal manner , b/c most know that although married they are still very private.

I kept waiting for raunchy parts, that was tame.

I think she is a great performer, but sucks as a singer


I am fan of them both...but I am sooooo tired of hearing how much they love each other and when/where/how/why they have sex.  Le sighhhh!  It's mainly Beyonce...if you followed her solo career, she writes at least one song, if not ten, songs about how she loves him.  Dangerously In Love, Crazy In Love, Drunk In Love....once again, Le sighhh!  I am trying not to pay attention to song or the performance.  But, I am still a big fan of both.

I thought it was a little boring compared to her other performances and I couldn't hear the lyrics. But oh well you can't please everyone. Btw my daughter walked out of her bedroom during the performance and I think I broke a finger trying to turn the t.v. off.
