After months of fans speculating that Beyonce would reunite with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams during her highly-anticipated Coachella performance in Indio, California, on Saturday, it finally happened!
The 36-year-old songstress paid homage to the homecoming experience at historically black colleges and universities in her epic set, taking the stage in a sorority-inspired cheerleader outfit while backed by an full, enormous marching band. Belting "Crazy in Love," Sasha Fierce was definitely the entire festival's show-stealer with just her first song -- and an entire bleacher's worth of 150 back-up dancers and musicians didn't hurt the epic scope of her grand entrance.
The moment that everyone was waiting for finally arrived mid-way, as her former band members arrived looking just as fierce as Queen Bey. The trio sang "Lose My Breath," "Say My Name" and "Soldier."
Beyonce also brought out husband JAY-Z during her stunning performance.
Later, Solange made an appearance, when the sisters had an epic dance-off to "Get Me Bodied."
Beyonce sang her greatest hits during her set, including "Formation, "Diva," "Single Ladies," "Drunk In Love" and more.
Beyonce addressed having to back out of Coachella during her performance on Saturday night.
“I was supposed to perform at Coachella before, but I ended up getting pregnant. So I had time to dream and dream and dream with two beautiful souls in my belly, and I dreamed up this performance," she said.
She also talked about making history.
“Coachella, thanks for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline," she said. “Ain’t that 'bout a b**ch?”
Beyonce's incredible show drew overwhelming praise, including from a few celebrities in the audience.
Beyonce will be back next week for week two of Coachella. Fans will have to wait and see what other surprises she has up her sleeve for her second set.
