Coachella turns into Beychella. Beyoncé proved why she is the world’s greatest entertainer on Saturday (April 14) with a history-making performance on Day 2 of Coachella.
After postponing last year’s performance due to her pregnancy, Queen Bey slayed with a spectacular 105-minute set, complete with a marching band, outfit changes, and fireworks. Backed by an army of 100 dancers and band members, she kicked off the homecoming-themed performance with a pep rally. After entering in a regal Balmain ensemble, ‘Yoncé changed into a yellow hoodie and denim cutoff shorts.
“Coachella, y’all ready?” she asked before opening with “Crazy in Love.” She owned the stage with hit after hit, including “Freedom,” “Formation,” “Sorry,” “Bow Down,” “Diva,” “Flawless,” “Feeling Myself,” and “Don’t Hurt Yourself.”
I just saw the greatest show to ever happen. @beyonce

As the first African-American female headliner, Queen Bey thrilled festivalgoers with a cameo from JAY-Z (“Déjà Vu”) before reuniting with her Destiny’s Child groupmates. Dressed in matching outfits, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams hit the stage for a trio of hits including “Lose My Breath,” “Say My Name,” and “Soldier.” Even Solange popped up for a “Get Me Bodied” dance off.
Following fan favorites like “Single Ladies,” ‘Yoncé delivered a heartwarming speech to her fans at home and in Indio, Calif. “I just wanna say thank you guys. I’m so happy that I’m here,” she said. I was supposed to perform at Coachella before but I ended up getting pregnant, thank God, and I had time to dream and dream and dream with two beautiful souls in my belly. I dreamt up this performance. This is everything and more than I dreamt of it being. Thank for sharing this with me.”
