Beyonce opens her Grammy performance with her legs spread wide open.

Beyoncé proved that Miley Cyrus doesn’t have a thing on her with a raunchy opening act for the 56th Grammy Awards. Her ultra-revealing outfit, salacious gyrations and vulgar lyrics sparked an uproar because it opened the show at 8 pm.

The performance also generated a storm of comments on Twitter. CBS censors bleeped her three times.

Most of the complaints centered on the fact that the act opened the three-and-a-half hour show at a time when children were still up and watching.

Beyonce, a mother of a toddler herself, wore a skimpy black thong bodysuit over fishnet tights.

She performed her hit song “Drunk In Love” Rapper husband Jay-z also took the stage at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old singer emerged from a fog on stage straddling a chair with her legs spread wide apart. She gyrated and twisted before breaking into a twerk. (Move over, Miley.)

Jay-Z, meanwhile, had his hands all over her.

Twitter critics (see below) were quick to draw comparisons to Cyrus’ performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards last August. Their risque duet, caused a firestorm of chattering and pearl clutching.
