People at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, an annual music and arts festival, are yet to get over from what they witnessed over the weekend – Beyonce, also known as Queen Bae on social media, appears to have upped the ante at the music festival with her performance that has broken the internet.
Instagram and Twitter are buzzing with snippets of her performance, with the collective agreeing that no one can ever compete with Queen Bae.
Performing on Saturday, Beyonce is the first black woman to headline the festival. Beginning her performance with her popular feminist anthem ‘Run The World (Girls)’, her performance has made everybody want to rename the festival to ‘Beychella’.
Her two-hour performance included ‘Crazy in Love‘ accompanied by a New Orleans-style brass marching band, and later a rendition of ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing‘, also known as the black national anthem. She sang several songs from her album Lemonade too, in addition to singing ‘Deja Vu’ with her husband, Jay-Z, and danced with her sister, Solange Knowles. She paid tribute to Nina Simone, American singer, songwriter, and activist in the Civil Rights Movement and Malcolm X, the African-American Muslim minister and human rights activist.
The ultimate surprise was the reunion of Destiny’s Child, featuring Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams appeared on stage with Beyonce singing ’90s hits ‘Say My Name’, ‘Soldier’ and ‘Lose My Breath’.
These are some of the many reactions of users on Beychella:
I saw it with my own two eyes. Beyonce is the greatest entertainer to ever live and the Queen of Music.

Just a reminder that Beyoncé gave her best performance after having 3 kids. Her actual best performance. Coachella 18 isn’t debatable.
