The superstar singer dazzled as she graced the stage to perform tracks from her number one album 4 on the same day her husband Jay-Z called her the 'second coming of Michael Jackson'.

Fans packed themselves into the downtown venue watching eagerly as their idol performed her album tracks with the vigour and panache that has made her one of the world's biggest stars.
