Beyoncé (with a little help from some friends) delivers stunning performance at Coachella
Coachella is no more, it's now BeyChella.
Fanning the flames Beyoncé left behind on the Coachella stage on Saturday night, the internet was fire immediately afterwards - seriously, go and check for yourself.
The number one trending topic on social media, Beyoncé slayed the California festival so much so that fans are now calling for it to be renamed 'BeyChella'.
Bey made good on her promise that she would make up for cancelling last year's headline spot due to being pregnant with the twins.
So what did her performance bring this year?
As expected, JAY-Z was in the house.
Solange showed up to lend some support to her sister.
One of the biggest moments came when Beyoncé brought out her Destiny's Child bandmates to do a medley of the group's biggest hits, including 'Soldier', 'Lose My Breath', and 'Say My Name'.

Add to this the explosive choreography and four costume changes and you've got one hell of a show. After the two hour performance, many are now calling Beyoncé "the greatest entertainer of our generation".
Her set included the hits: 'Crazy In Love', 'Formation', 'Drunk In Love', 'Diva', 'Flawless', 'Check On It', 'Dé Ja Vu', 'Cater To You', 'Who Run the World' and of course, 'Single Ladies'.

Take a look at some of the responses to Beyoncé's Coachella performance below:
Let me remind you that a 36-year-old mother of three just outperformed ANY performer of any age race and gender EVER. sis performed 2 hours straight, had multiple dance breaks, a 20 year old reunion, and still had FLAWLESS VOCALS. Beyoncé won. Talent WON. #beychella pic.twitter.com/ai8oeKPb03

The Black National Anthem.
Malcolm X quotes.
Nina Simone samples.
Stepping and marching bands.
Jigga for the deja vu.
A Destiny’s Child reunion.
A Solange dance collabo.
The greatest living entertainer is a Black woman named Beyonce. This is not up for debate.#Beychella

Beyonce is a perfectionist, that’s why she’s the greatest performer alive. Wow she just gave birth to twins and danced like this for 2 hours, omg the cardio alone is unprecedented for music artists, not to mention she’s back to her pre-baby body. Salute Mrs. Carter #Beychella pic.twitter.com/TV794JUoTz

Beyoncé paid homage to Fela Kuti during her coachella perfomance.
Fela Kuti was a Nigerian musician and activist who launched Afro-beat, which then fused American blues, jazz and funk with traditional Yoruba music. #Beychella pic.twitter.com/39z4QD4ymq
