Queen Bey came, saw, and conquered with an epic performance, turning Coachella into Beychella
By now, if you haven't seen videos of Beyoncé's performance, you've probably caught murmurs (or downright worships really) on social media. Not even 48 hours have passed since, but her two-hour set that saw appearances from Jay-Z and Solange, and the Destiny's Child reunion we are living for, backed by 100 dancers and a 200-strong marching band, is already legendary. Even her fellow stars are in awe:
I just saw the greatest show to ever happen. @beyonce
Fuuuuuuuuh.... @Beyonce KILT IT. I wasn’t even there... the Coachella YouTube live was madness. She makes one want to just forget everything they knew about live performance, sit down, and take notes.... and weep openly. #takeustoschoolB
How. in. The. Fuh. Did. She. Pull. That. Shiii. OFF!!!!??? It’s like 170 musicians onstage. I mean the stage plotting. The patch chords. How many monitor boards were used??! Bandleading that shit woulda gave me anxiety. Hats off man. Jesus H Christ.
[Updated] Unfortunately, the videos of her full performance have been blocked on copyright grounds, and weekend two of Coachella won't be livestreamed on YouTube. The next best thing now is her performance recap here by Vulture plus snippets of recordings that are still making rounds on the internet.
