A year after Beyoncé backed out of Coachella to have twins, she returned with a smashing performance and quickly turned the music festival into “Beychella.” Here are some of the best reactions to Beyoncé’s epic performance at the annual music event.
One of the best reactions from Beyoncé’s performance came courtesy of Adele. After watching Beyoncé’s performance, which was live-streamed on YouTube, Adele shared a video of herself dancing to the songs while rocking some pretty cool sweatpants.

In one clip, the singer whipped her hair and jumped up and down while another showed her shaking her booty.
Not only did Beyoncé’s performance feature a full marching band and a team of 100 backup dancers, but she also had an epic dance-off with Solange. Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z, also made an appearance and fans were treated to a quick Destiny’s Child reunion when Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland showed up.
With a performance this big, Adele wasn’t the only celebrity who went absolutely nuts watching it.
Rihanna, Chance and Adam Lambert couldn’t get enough of Beyoncé’s concert at Coachella and expressed just how much they enjoyed the show on social media. While Chance called Beyoncé’s performance the “greatest” ever, Lambert said he was taking notes.
Fuuuuuuuuh…. @Beyonce KILT IT. I wasn’t even there… the Coachella YouTube live was madness. She makes one want to just forget everything they knew about live performance, sit down, and take notes…. and weep openly. #takeustoschoolB

Twitter pretty much blew up following Beyoncé’s epic performance. In fact, social media was filled with posts from fans who thought Beyoncé’s show was one of the best they’ve ever seen at Coachella. Given the rich history of the annual music festival, that’s saying a lot.
“Happy New Year. Because everything that’s happened before #Beychella is irrelevant,” one fan wrote on Twitter, while another added, “There was no greater production than that of Beychella. Period.”
Beyoncé was the first black woman in history to headline the festival. The performance took place over the course of two hours, with thousands of people in attendance.
Beyoncé sang a few of her classic songs, including “Crazy in Love,” Flawless,” and “Formation.” She also sang what is collectively known as the black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
Beyoncé is also set to perform over the second weekend of Coachella. If her next performance is anything like her first, then we might be in for round two of Beychella.
