Beyonce was the perfect person to present her proteges, Chloe x Halle, with the Rising Star Award at the 2020 Billboard Women in Music event on Dec. 10. Bey showed up virtually to give a short speech for her girls before announced their honor. “Ladies, I am so, so proud of you,” she said. “You’ve done this with authenticity, with grace, with raw talent. You’ve managed to shine in every room you enter and I’ll always love you.”

The singer filmed her presenter speech herself, and she looked stunning in the short clip. Bey pulled her long, curly hair back into a tight ponytail. Her skin was glowing, but she was wearing minimal makeup, aside from a glossy pink lip. Fans loved her natural look and raved over it on social media. Some fans even pointed out that Bey was becoming a “clone” of her mom, Tina Knowles, with the look!
“Oof, if Beyonce don’t be out here lookin’ like her mama!” someone wrote. “When she does her hair in a certain way, she instantly becomes Ms. Tina!” Someone else added, “Baby Beyonce starting to look like a Tina clone & I’m here for ALL OF IT.” Additionally, a fan with the Instagram name ‘Beyonce for President,’ gushed, “Sis looking more & more like Tina everyday.”
Of course, the moment was really about Chloe x Halle, and they shined so bright as they performed and accepted their honor. Bey actually discovered the girls after seeing cover songs that they had posted on YouTube. She quickly became a mentor to them and wound up helping them get signed to Parkwood Entertainment. They also opened for the singer on various tours to help get more recognition amongst fans.
Now, Chloe x Halle are a superstar act themselves. They scored two Grammy nominations in 2019, and are up for three more in 2021. Their most recent album, Ungodly Hour, came out in June amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and has been praised by critics and fans alike. Beyonce knows a good thing when she hears it!
