Beyoncé Reunites with Destiny's Child — and Makes History! — in Epic Coachella Performance
Beyoncé's highly anticipated Coachella headlining performance marks her return to the public stage since welcoming her twins, Rumi and Sir, in June
I don’t think you’re ready for this reunion.
During Beyoncé’s highly anticipated headlining performance at Coachella on Saturday — her first since welcoming twins Rumi and Sir last June — the superstar brought out her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
DC3 wowed with memorable jams from the ’90s and early 2000s, belting “Say My Name,” “Soldier” and “Lose My Breath” in matching black and bronze ensembles that paid homage to the iconic looks from the group’s reign on the charts.
This isn’t the first time Beyoncé had Rowland and Williams join her for a high-profile performance — the three took the stage together in February 2013 for her Super Bowl halftime show.
The 36-year-old singer began her nearly two-hour Coachella set by performing a selection of hits — including “Sorry,” “Crazy in Love” and “Drunk in Love” — and bringing out husband JAY-Z for a rendition of “Déjà Vu.”
Queen Bey also celebrated a historic moment for both the music festival and herself: “Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline,” she said, making the perfect introduction to “Run the World (Girls).”
Marking the milestone, the singer performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which is known as the black national anthem.

Throughout her performance, Beyoncé wore five custom Balmain looks, which designer Olivier Rousteing made in collaboration with the singer, stylist Marni Senofonte and the rest of the Bey’s team.
Explaining the inspiration behind the outfits, Rousteing told Vogue that Beyoncé was “looking for something in a military style” because “the shows were all about survivors.”
While all of the outfits obviously got Queen B’s seal of approval, there was one look in particular that caught JAY-Z’s eyes.
“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,” the designer told the outlet.
Rousteing also told Vogue that he has made a completely separate collection of looks for the singer to wear next week, during her second Coachella performance.
The Grammy winner was originally slated to headline Coachella in 2017 but dropped out on doctor’s orders after revealing she was pregnant with twins; instead, Lady Gaga took her place. Along with their twins, Beyoncé and husband JAY-Z are parents to their daughter Blue Ivy, 6.
“She was disappointed last year when she had to cancel, so she wants everything be perfect this time,” a source previously told PEOPLE of Beyoncé. “She is very excited about the show.”
Beyoncé had prepped for the performance for months. In addition to regular workouts, the “Sorry” singer revealed in March that she adopted a vegan diet to get stage ready.
An insider previously told PEOPLE that the power couple’s children will join them on the road. “They are incredibly excited. It took a lot of work to make this happen. It’s the best choice for their family,” the insider said. “They will all travel together and have a fun family adventure.”
