Beyonce Slays Coachella With 'Performance of a Lifetime': See the Best Reactions

Beyonce, who missed out last year's performance because she was pregnant with twins, thanked the Coachella Festival for making her the first black woman headliner. Jay-Z and sister Solange also made cameos during her set.

With an audio recording of novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's essay We Should All Be Feminists allowing Ms. Beyonce a moment to prepare, she re-emerged being elevated to the stage in an unmistakable silhouette of three figures. "Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline", Bey said, giving the ideal introduction to "Run the World (Girls)".

Beyonce is reportedly set to reunite with her Destiny's Child bandmates for her highly-anticipated Coachella set.

Enjoy her best performances of Coachella.


The group was last seen on stage together in 2013 when they performed at the Super Bowl halftime show. With Beyoncé putting on a stellar two hour set, it seems that Adele lost her chill just like the rest of us. For some major throwback vibes, she brought her king Jay-Z onstage for "Déjà Vu", and made Destiny's Child reunion 2.0 possible with shimmering camo and tracks "Lose My Breath", "Say My Name" and "Soldier".

Beyoncé was supposed to headline the festival a year ago, but was forced to pull out due to her pregnancy.

Beyoncé's scheduled to perform solo on Saturday.

And judging by the reaction on social media, Queen B will definitely be invited back.
