The celebrated artist brought the stunning set-up she uses for her massive Formation World Tour to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, including a enormous shallow pool she and her back-up dancers splash around in, and an impressive pyrotechnic display.
Rocking a skin-tight, semi-sheer, black patterned leotard, Beyoncé led her army of dancers through a bombastic performance of her hit single off Lemonade.
As Beyonce began her final verse, the lighting dipped from a fiery orange to a deep, brooding red as Lamar rose up out of the stage in front of the dancers and rocked his portion of the song with his face basked in a crimson glow.
Lamar joined Beyonce as they sang together, kicking up arcs of water as they dominated the stage and proved to the world just how epic the powerful track and the Formation singer's stage presence really is.
Both artists' strong political message and impassioned, meaningful lyrics were a perfect way to kick off this year's BET Awards, where they are both nominated in some of the night's biggest categories.
Beyonce is nominated for five awards, including Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and Video of the Year for her "Formation" music video, and Best Collaboration for her work with Nicki Minaj on the song "Feeling Myself."
