Beyonce's Heavy Metal Night at the BET Awards

No, Beyonce hasn’t turned into a rocker, but she did go for metallic in a big (and weighty) way at last night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles. She hit the red carpet in a stunning one of a kind crystal gown from Dolce & Gabbana, topped with a metal corset belt that an insider tells PEOPLE “weighs a million pounds!” She then changed into full C3P0 robot mode for a performance of her hit song “Get Me Bodied” — eventually, the robot shell came off to reveal a metal bra-let and mirrored gold leggings that seemed to be a little bit easier for booty-shaking. And Beyonce added a little bit more metal by the end of the night. The singer won two trophies for best R&B Female and Video of the Year, for her single, “Irreplaceable”.

I love Beyonce!!!!! She is the most beautiful woman in the world. I love her in the dress on the left. She always manages to look so sleek and sophisticated. I think the metal ensemble was a bit much, but the bra-and-leggings underneath was very sexy. Go Beyonce!

loved it on

loved it, she looked really good,but she should be more original next time, Kylie Minogue did already do that little number. but whatever, both ladies looked fab doing it.

Wow… I checked out Kylie’s act as OVER suggested. Beyonce did completely rip this idea off of her. Nearly identical, except Kylie’s suit was far cooler, 5 years ago too.

So over Beyonce. You can sing girl, but you need lessons from Madonna on how to reinvent yourself to stay fresh… your act is old and tired.

Good Lord! I just threw up in my mouth a little.

With all that tacky sparkle, I think she is going to be a disco ball in her next life.

It looks like a Janet or Michael Jackson outfit. The look on her face it hilarous – tryin to look so sexy in that goofy lookin outfit. That could have been done A LOT better. (i think)
