Beyonce singing in french ??

Did you saw Beyonce singing in french at the oscars ?? She did a great job singing but it was NOT in french. I do speak french and I did not understand a word of what she was singing. I talked with my friends who speak french and no one understand what she was singing.

Maybe it was North American (Canadian) French?

I am French. I only saw her for a few seconds in the news. She was speaking French, although with an American English accent, but that's forgivable, isn't it?

Of course someone who doesn't speak French is not going to sing it like someone who is actually French. Cmon people, you guys are grasping at straws. Beyonce did a good job last night. I was suprised how professional she was during her performances.

Bah, elle a fait un effort (et pourtant, je jure que je ne suis pas fan). Je n'ai vu qu'un extrait de trois secondes, il faut dire.

Cela me fait plaisir de voir des stars Américaines chanter en Français : Beaucoup devraient en prendre de la graine : La langue Française est une langue très riche et magnifique En même temps, elle pourrait aussi apprendre un peu le Français : Une pierre deux coups comme l'on dit

If Beyonce not pronouncing her French correctly during the song bothers people so much then they must have very little to worry about in life. LOL

Oh it bothered you so don't deny it. I will agree that she destroyed the song, but it was a good effort.

She didn't really have the choice to sing it and altought it was for the most part not understandable, she has such a great voice that it kind of prevented it to be a total mess. Makes you wonder however, why they didn't give the little boy who sings it so well in the movie, a chance to perform at the oscars!!!???
