Beyonce's debut Coachella performance pays tribute to Afro, Caribbean legends

As if 100 degree weather wasn't enough at this year's Coachella Music and Arts Festival, the crowds couldn't stop sweating with last night's historic performance by none other than Beyoncé.

One-year after Beyoncé postponed her headlining Coachella Music Festival performance due to being pregnant with twins, Rumi \strong and Sir Carter, the singer put on a show to remember.

She followed up her opening number by addressing her fans and saying, "Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline" and followed up the statement by singing Run The World (Girls).

People raved about her 26-song performance, which DJ Khaled renamed "Beychella", saying during her set, "After tonight, Coachella gotta rename Coachella the Beychella". Queen Bey also sang "Déja Vu" with Jay-Z and belted out some of Destiny's Child's most famous hits like "Say My Name", "Lose My Breath", and "Soldier". He added, "She makes one want to just forget everything they knew about live performance, sit down, and take notes.... and weep openly".




Bey was originally slated to headline Coachella previous year but she dropped out on her doctor's advise after addressing her pregnancy with twins, Lady Gaga then took her place.

"Y'all ready Coachella?" Beyonce said at the start of her set.

Beyoncé's scheduled to perform solo on Saturday. Naturally, she did so in true Beyoncé style-and with an epic surprise in store for the audience. "We have been working hard and have a special show planned for you so please be safe and stay hydrated".
