Twitter Debates: Is Beyonce a Better Performer Than Michael Jackson?
Beyoncé’s epic performance at the 2018 Coachella Music & Arts Festival on Saturday (April 14) was no doubt one for the history books. Hours after Queen Bey’s extravaganza, a Twitter debate erupted between the Beyhive and MJ fan club. Who is the greatest live performer of all time -- Beyoncé or Michael Jackson?
Granted, Beyoncé’s Coachella performance was spectacular but MJ was also known for his phenomenal stage performances when he was alive, so it’s really a toss up.
Some fans stayed loyal to their idols while others agreed that they’re both are legends and there's no reason to compare them. "I cannot believe you guys are up here comparing Beyoncé and Michael Jackson. Someone always has to be better with y'all. Y'all just can't appreciate talent and move on?" tweeted producer Amorphous.
Another person wrote, "Grown ass men would pass out over Michael Jackson before he could even get a note out. Ambulance had to be on standby. Y’all gotta relax on the Beyoncé GOAT performer talk lol."
A Beyhive member tweeted, "Beyoncé is the living female Michael Jackson of this era fam you can’t hate on this woman at all. A true all around a entertainer."
Who do you think is the greatest live performer of all time -- Queen Bey or the King of Pop?
