Beyoncé on Saturday night became the first black woman to headline the massive Coachella Music and Arts festival. “Thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline Coachella,” she said halfway through her performance. She opened Coachella with the iconic “Crazy In Love”, an absolute spectacle! Beyoncé delivered a nearly-two-hour performance filled with four costume changes, plenty of surprises and epic choreography.
The performance was already expected to be legendary, given Beyoncé’s popularity and influence, but fans began calling the festival “Beychella” after an epic set that featured surprise guests like husband Jay-Z and sister Solange, and a reuniting of Destiny’s Child.
We also have to say that the highlights of this big festival was for Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who stepped out onto the stage toward the end of the set for a full-blown Destiny’s Child reunion.The trio kicked off their three-song mini-show with their 2004 hit “Lose My Breath,” following it with “Say My Name” and then “Soldier.” It was their first time performing together since 2015. The crowd, and the internet, went wild.
The other thing that we loved from this festival was the moment when Jay Z joined Beyonce at Coachella. Jay-Z made an appearance to perform their 2006 collaboration, ‘Déjà Vu’, and a bleach-blonde Solange Knowles crashed the stage for a serious sisterly dance off to ‘Get Me Bodied’.
Beychella is proof that Beyoncé is the greatest performer alive. Just browse through the #Beychella hashtag on Twitter; it won’t take long to piece together the whole set. The hashtag #Beychella is trending on social media after her explosive performance.
