- Beyonce, pregnant with twins, performed wearing a golden crown
- She performed a medley of Love Drought and Sandcastles
- She was joined on-stage by her mother and 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy
Here's a glimpse of Beyonce's Grammys performance:
The performance was in keeping with the new, edgier persona of Beyonce, who has geared her music away from the more mainstream audience of her pop hits. Beyonce chose not to play it safe, instead putting on an extravagant and abstract performance with touches of Indian spirituality and ancient Egypt.
Beyonce was introduced by her proud mother before an image of the 35-year-old singer flashed on the screen. She was also shown with her mother and daughter Blue Ivy, all in gold. The real Beyonce then appeared wearing a golden crown and flowing cape alongside dozens of female dancers, who made formations around her as they turned the stage into a sea of flowers.
Dear Beyonce, why so fabulous? The lesser mortals of Twitter would like to know. Please help us cope.
