Surprise — Beyonce is in the house! The singer totally shocked everyone by showing up to the BET Awards unannounced and opening the show with the most epic performance. Oh, and she brought a very special guest, too!
The BET Awards are always full of epic surprises, and the 2016 show was no different! It was absolutely epic when Beyonce, 34, took the stage right at the beginning of the show, and obviously, her performance was nothing short of perfection. Slay, Bey!
Beyonce absolutely slayed from the moment she got on stage, walking through a flood of water while joined by a group of dancers and belting out her song “Freedom.” She obviously looked beyond incredible in a sheer, sparkly leotard with fringe sleeves. And can we talk about how AMAZING she sounded and how great those dance moves were, too!? The background of the stage lit up with fire as they performed an epic step routine, and then Kendrick Lamar came on to rap a verse. AMAZING!
Fans began speculating that Beyonce might be making a surprise appearance at the show when her dancers were photographed heading into the venue before the red carpet even officially began. Then, the official BET Awards account tweeted that the “whole world will be in #Formation” just two hours before the show, confirming what we had already expected. Still, the performance totally blew our minds and was even better than we could have imagined!
It’s been a wild few months for Queen Bey – she dropped her album, Lemonade, in April and with all the songs about infidelity, she had everyone talking about her relationship with Jay Z, 46. The couple has put on a united front, looking more in love than ever, since the album came out, but it definitely seems like they went through a MAJOR rough patch there. But clearly, Beyonce doesn’t let the drama get to her — this performance at the BET Awards may have been her best one yet!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Beyonce’s performance? Were you surprised?
