Beyoncé was originally set to headline Coachella last year, but after she became pregnant with twins, she was forced to postpone her headlining performance until the 2018 edition of the festival. The extended wait was worth it, however, as Beyoncé delivered a memorable set that included a reunion of Destiny’s Child as well appearances from JAY-Z and Solange.
JAY-Z joined his wife on stage to perform “Déjà Vu”, while Solange danced with her big sis during “Get Me Bodied”. Of course, the biggest highlight came when Destiny’s Child’s Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams reunited with Beyoncé on stage for the first time since Bey’s 2013 Super Bowl Half Time set. This time around, the iconic trio performed a medley of “Lose My Breath”, “Say My Name”, and “Soldier”.
For the entirety of the performance, Beyoncé was accompanied by an expansive drum line and horn section in addition to a mesmerizing troupe of backing dancers.
