The Beyhive was devastated when Beyonce failed to show at the 2016 Emmy Awards on September 18, despite the fact that she was nominated for multiple awards. The reason Beyonce skipped the Emmys has finally been revealed after much speculation; find out after the jump!
Sadly, Beyonce couldn’t attend the 2016 Emmy Awards because she was feeling under the weather. Poor thing! It was such a shock to excited fans who saw her empty seat in the audience before the show marked with her photo and name, with Jay Z and mama Tina Knowles next to her. They were anxious to see her (hopefully) get up on stage and accept an Emmy for Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special along with Kahlil Joseph for Lemonade!
“She wanted to be there,” a source told E! News. “But at the last minute, decided it was better if she stayed home because she really was feeling that bad.” That’s too bad! It is a relief to know that Beyonce didn’t skip because she knew prior to the show that she wasn’t winning the Emmy, as many speculated. It makes sense. She’s Beyonce; she doesn’t need anyone’s validation to know that Lemonade is an amazing album, and would definitely be able to sit in the Emmys audience and accept her loss gracefully.
We’re glad Beyonce’s taking care of herself, especially because of her incredibly busy touring schedule. But it’s still disappointing that she didn’t attend the 68th annual Emmys, considering that there were major rumors she was going to perform her Lemonade hits! However, according to the source who spoke to E! News, that performance was never in the cards. What a bummer!
Even celebrities were upset that Beyonce wasn’t there. John Oliver was supposed to sit by her, and missed out on what could have been a magical night! “For this week I thought Beyonce was supposed to be here,” John said backstage at the Emmys after winning Outstanding Variety Talk Series. “I saw a seating chart and I was supposed to be sitting behind her so all I really been thinking about the last forty eight hours is that I was going to see Beyonce’s head for four hours.”
