No one can sing a hell-hath-no-fury-like-a-woman-scorned song like Reba McEntire, who blew George Strait off the stage last summer when they performed last summer in Utah.

Her cover of Beyonce's "If Were A Boy" shows off her unbeatable interpretive gifts (though the musical backing is a little too slick for my tastes). Just enjoy the voice:
