BEYONCE has made history becoming the first African American woman to headline Coachella. And Queen Bey gave us a spectacular reunion.

BEYONCE has ruled at Coachella, in a history-making performance the internet dubbed ‘Beychella’.
Queen Bey, 36, became the first African American woman to headline the Californian music festival. She did so with a knockout performance which included a Destiny’s Child reunion and appearances by her rapper husband, Jay Z, and sister, Solange Knowles.

“Thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline Coachella,” Beyonce told the crowd.
“This is a very important performance for me ... do we have any strong women out there tonight?”
Beyonce was due to headline last year’s festival but had to pull out after she became pregnant with twins Rumi and Sir, who were born last June.
Wearing custom-made costumes designed by Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing, Beyonce launched into hit after hit included FormationCrazy In LoveSorryBow DownDrunk in LoveFlawlessRun the World (Girls) , Love On Topand Single Ladies.
Jay Z joined her for Deja Vu and she reunited with Destiny’s Child members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland for a medley (and trademark Destiny’s Child matching khaki sequined outfits), which included Say My Name and Soldier.
“Our silhouettes and our sort of Mad Max, futuristic take on military looks for Fall were a perfect fit,” Rousteing told Vogue of the costumes.
“Jay saw the Egyptian goddess cape and when B put it on, his eyes went wide and he was so excited, he said, ‘Oh, wow!’ That gave me a lot of satisfaction.”
In a subtle nod to the Coachella uniform of denim cut-off shorts, Bey teamed the look with a yellow high school-style hoodie, and later sported a patent black bodysuit with military-style power shoulders, thigh-high boots and a puffy jacket.
“Ladies, are we smart? Are we strong? Have we had enough?,” she told the crowd.
Beyonce branded merchandise was seriously hot property at Coachella, with organisers confirming none of Queen Bey’s merch was to be sold until her performance started. Rihanna was seen watching front row, according to a source.
Beyonce will return to Coachella next weekend.
