Last night Beyonce performed her brand new single 1+1 on American Idol’s finale. Before she took the stage, there was a rehearsal…and if you didn’t believe she really had it in her, you will after you watch this.

Jay-Z recorded this video of his wife’s rehearsal and posted it on his blog with this note:

Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time. This is the dressing room rehearsal for American Idol. NO MICROPHONE. No effects. – Andy WarHOV.

Sweet, right? What’s even sweeter is how AWESOME she sounds with just the keyboard and her background vocalists. The new album “4” will be in stores June 28th, and you can pre-order it right now on iTunes.
