Once upon a time there was a little music festival in the desert named Coachella.
Over the years Coachella has had many stars, but it has never had a queen...
Beyoncé brought all her Beyoncé magic and then some to her highly anticipated Saturday night slot at the music festival in Southern California.
The attention to detail on the costumes was truly outstanding.
And so now, as would only be respectful to the Queen, Coachella shall henceforth be known as "Beychella."
During her spectacular set as the first black woman headliner at Coachella, Beyoncé had an important message.
Which, at a festival that is considered to be very white, was especially powerful.
There was a glorious squat interlude with her sister, Solange.
It was a cute parallel to Bey's cameo when Solange played Coachella in 2014.
Honestly, it was mesmerizing.
And then we got a sweet hit of DC3 with the arrival of Kelly and Michelle.
Jay-Z dropped by.
Some found it downright spiritual.
It was called "the performance of the decade."
Rihanna was getting down right in the front row.
It was a very emotional affair for those who got to witness the magic IRL.
Srsly, look at her.
God save the Queen.
