Beyoncé Shut Down Coachella with an Epic Performance That Will Go Down in History
After canceling her Coachella set last year due to her pregnancy, Beyoncé's performance on Saturday night definitely made up for the long wait. As she finally took the stage in Indio, Calif., Bey did not disappoint, delivering an epic performance that broke records.
In addition to a mind-boggling 26-song set list that spanned her entire career, which was accompanied by dizzying dance moves, sparkly Balmain costumes, and insane guest appearances, the "Lemonade" singer made history as the first black woman to headline the music festival. And, like the true Queen she is, Beyoncé acknowledged the legendary achievement.
"Thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline Coachella," she exclaimed while bringing Sasha Fierce back to life.
Her loyal Beyhive pointed out the other history-making accomplishments that resulted from her Coachella set.
She kicked things off with '"Lift Every Voice And Sing," a poem set to music that is also known as the black national anthem. From there, Bey launched into her two and a half hour ode to HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) with mega-hit "Crazy in Love," tuned to a live marching band, and fans lost it when Jay-Z joined her on stage to perform "Déjà Vu."
Shortly after, Destiny's Child came out for a surprise appearance, and, as if that wasn't enough, Bey and her sister, Solange, danced together to "Get Me Bodied."
This Queen needs no flower crown. All hail the powers that Bey.
