While her husband Jay-Z was performing with Coldplay in Brooklyn, Beyoncé was headlining a private concert at Wynn Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. She performed her many hits for the invite-only crowd and led the countdown to 2013.
“I want you to think about everything beautiful in your life,” said Bey with just seconds to go until the new year. “I think that’s what you should visualize in 2013. So get that picture in your mind. I want you to think about everything you love.”
As the clock struck midnight, confetti poured down from the ceiling and “Auld Lang Syne” played.
“Happy New Year! So ya’ll ready to dance a little bit more?” said Bey before continuing with Destiny’s Child’s “Jumpin’ Jumpin’.”
