*Jay-Z posted to his website a behind-the-scenes clip he filmed of his wife Beyonce rehearsing her single, “1 + 1” on “American Idol.”

“Oh man,” he is heard yelling out after listening to Bey’s practice performance.

In the same post on his “Life + Times” site, Jay-Z wrote, “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.”
