  • Beyoncé Became the First Black Woman to Headline Coachella

She stormed through almost every song she has ever released - including the world's quickest duet with husband Jay-Z - and even took the time to get a manicure halfway through the set.

Beyoncé acknowledged her historic and creatively impressive show as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined her onstage. Addressing to the crowd, she said, "Thank you Coachella for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline".

On Saturday night the trio rose to the stage on a platform, standing back to back in a Charlie's Angels-style formation, a nod to their 2001 hit Independent Women Pt. 1, which appeared on the film's soundtrack.

The singer posted on social media to promote her next performance at the ACM awards and we're blown away because she looks as lovely as ever! Her last performance was during the 2017 Grammy Awards.

Whether it was the surprise Destiny's Child reunion, the joyous dance routine she performed with sister Solange or a cameo from husband JAY-Z, everyone seemed to have a favorite part of Beyoncé's set. According to Page Six, Beyoncé's team has been trying to tightly control which photos of her get published, and because it's Beyoncé, they're probably going to pull it off.

Beyoncé was supposed to headline the festival a year ago, but was forced to pull out due to her pregnancy.

Her performance with Jay-Z gave a preview of the couple's upcoming On The Run II tour set for this summer.

Adele wasn't the one star tuned into Beyoncé's history-making headline performance.
