Beyoncé Was a Maternal Goddess During Her Grammys Perfomance
Once and always the Queen.
Obviously Beyoncé slays all day — and that was definitely the case when the expecting-a-set-of-twins superstar took the stage at the Grammys on Sunday. Before we even go any further, she was fierce. She was a goddess — literally.
The Lemonade singer's incredible Grammys moment kicked off with an introduction from her mother, Tina Lawson, who paid tribute to her daughters, including Solange, "I am blessed to have daughters, wonderful daughters who make me proud with everything they do," she said. And with her heartfelt homage to her famous family, Beyoncé took the stage in a mind-bending performance.
She took the stage in a shimmering gown, accented with a goddess crown and flowing blonde hair. Then it cut to a moving image of her with her bump fully out in another, more naked goddess look. Those imaged kept cutting back in forth in video, leaving the viewer to wonder what was real and what was fake. There was even a cameo from a running little Blue Ivy. Bey hadn't even started singing yet. Instead, she focused on spoken lines from her album that spoke about motherhood: "You look nothing like your mother. You look everything like your mother. You desperately want to look like her."
From there she was joined by dozens of female dancers and that's when she belted out two of the slower jams off her 2016 Grammy-nominated album: "Love Drought" and "Sandcastles." Even pregnant with twins, nothing could slow down the singer, who was just as fierce as ever." As her performance came to a close she shared this line from the album, "If we're gonna heal, let it be glorious."
When it was all done, she thanked the room and blew a kiss to her beaming husband and daughter. It was all pretty glorious.
