Last night marked the annual extravaganza that is the Grammy Awards, an evening which always stands out for showcasing some of the biggest performances in music and the most talked about moments in the entertainment world. Beyonce is no stranger to killing it on this stage but her 2017 outing was arguably her best year yet - we know, hard to fathom after some of her killa' appearances in the past. But after dropping the news last week that she’s pregnant with twins, (TWINS!!!), and subsequently breaking the internet, whilst eclipsing Selena Gomez’s reign as the most liked Instagram image of all time, all eyes were on her as she took to the stage at the LA Staples Centre on Sunday the 12th of February.
Performing a medley from her sixth album Lemonade, Queen Bey dressed her bump in a custom Peter Dundas dress and looked every inch the regal, glowing, goddess you’d expect, celebrating femininity and womanhood at its finest, complete with huge gold crown and stacked gold chokers. She performed “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” surrounded by dancers, featuring a matriarchal video montage including daughter Blue Ivy and mother Tina Knowles.
Even though fellow nominee Adele won the night in terms of awards, beating Bey to Record of the Year and Album of the Year, she emotionally dedicated the award to her, showing that the night was always going to be about Queen B. In her own acceptance speech for winning Best Urban Contemporary Album she spoke powerfully on the need to empower "every child of every race", in possibly a not so subtle dig at the man in charge whose name we won't utter on this blog. Bey was fierce yet classy and we so love her for it.
Bey slayed not one look but two, wearing a custom made, red sequinned floor length gown with huge diamond necklace that showed off her growing baby bump. Those twins don’t even know the world of slay they’re about to be entering.
Joined by Jay-z and Blue Ivy , Blue continued her reign as the best dressed celebrity child in a white ruffled shirt, pink suit and a fierce glitter clutch bag.
We salute you Beyoncé. Until next year...
