Beyoncé performed for throngs of screaming fans Saturday night at Coachella after a year’s wait.

The Queen was slated to headline last year’s festival, but had to cancel under doctor’s orders because she was pregnant with twins at the time. Lady Gaga stepped in as Beyoncé’s replacement.

She and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, welcomed Rumi and Sir Carter last June.

Beyoncé’s fans, known as the “BeyHive,” have waited to see her perform since last year’s Grammy Awards.

Hours before Saturday’s performance, the singer posted on facebook about her excitement, said she can’t wait to see her fans.


“Y’all ready Coachella?,” she asked the crowd as she opened her set, becoming the first woman of color to headline the music festival in Indio, California.

She opened her long-anticipated performance with a marching band version of her hit “Crazy in Love,” and later crooned a rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as the black national anthem.

One of our favorite moments from her performance was her choreography with her sister, Solange

Here are some feedbacks from her performance.

Beyoncé and husband, Jay-Z,  will kick off their joint tour OTRII this summer.
