Beyoncé pushes the Coachella envelope with Destiny’s Child reunion and Jay-Z cameo

Written by on April 15, 2018

A wave of sadness passed among Beyoncé fans in 2017 when the decision was made to cancel her Coachella headlining performance out of pregnancy help concerns.

She more than made up for time on Saturday night, April 14, when she finally took over the mega-festival’s main stage for what will go down as one of the most iconic performances in its history. It opened with an extravagant college-themed arrangement of dancers, musicians, and bright costumes that gave way to a powerful entrance by the “Queen” herself. All the while, she kept her audience engaged as she paid homage to various factors that comprise her musical roots with hardly a crack in her voice.

Coachella is known for its artists bringing out a variety of all-star cameos, and Beyoncé was no different. Viewers were blown away at the reunion of Destiny’s Child, who performed a string of beloved classics. Jay-Z was also brought on stage for a sentimental “Déjà Vu” performance. By the end of her two-hour slot, some pundits even proposed that the performance was a signal of her creative peak and of her reaching a whole new level artistically.
