This past weekend was a pretty big deal for several celebrities. While Drake shut down the Apollo Theater in New York, Beyonce slayed all night at a new luxury resort in Dubai. The huge superstar shocked fans with her international performance, her first in four long years. Furthermore, the exclusive, invite-only concert welcomed some of the biggest stars of Hollywood, including Kendall Jenner and Black Panther’s Letitia Wright. Of course, no one would be crazy enough to miss a Beyonce show.
Full of epic performances, iconic fashion choices, and a guest appearance from her daughter, Blue Ivy, the show couldn’t be any better. Here are the top 5 biggest moments from Beyonce’s Dubai’s concert.
She Performed Her Greatest Hits
On Jan. 21, Queen Bey delivered the goods. The billionaire singer celebrated the grand opening of the new Atlantis Royal Resort in Dubai by delivering a massive performance. Throughout the high-profile show, Beyonce performed 17 of her greatest hits of all time. Many of the songs included “Crazy In Love,” “XO” and “Otherside.” Though, the biggest moment took place when the singer performed a medley version of her songs whilst floating in a water shower. Beyonce always knows how to give a great performance.
The Mother-Daughter Duet We’ve Been Waiting For
Speaking of delivering a great performance, Beyonce was joined by her eldest daughter, Blue Lvy to perform “Brown Skin Girl.” Arguably, mother and daughter performed the Grammy-award winning single beautifully. Not to mention, Blue Ivy has made it clear that she’s just as much a diva as her famous mother.
Additionally, Ivy offered up some major dance moves that looked pretty impressive. Unfortunately, Beyonce cut her dance routine short, leaving many fans to speculate that she did so to save Blue Ivy’s skill set for a future concert. Honestly, we are here for it.
She Demands The Best Dancers
Beyonce may be the Queen of everything but she hasn’t always been the best at remembering choreography. On the other hand, her daughter Blue Ivy can do it all, sing and dance at the same time. Perhaps that’s why Beyonce’s dancers take her concerts to the next level.
Furthermore, Beyonce tapped America’s Got Talent winners The Mayyas to join her on the Dubai stage. After the show, the alternative dance troupe posted a statement of pure gratitude. “It was an absolute honor to share the stage with the one and only Queen Beyonce,” the Lebanese dance group wrote. Beyonce knows how to choose the best dancers.
Girls Run The World
Another big moment happened when Beyonce enlisted the help of the all-female ensemble, The Firdaus Orchestra to perform with her on the Dubai stage. As the star once sang, “Girls, we run the world.” Furthermore, the 48-person group features women “from various parts of the Arab world.” Every queen needs an army.
The Show Featured Iconic Fashion Looks
If you’ve ever attended a Beyonce concert, you know that the star goes above and beyond. Everything from the song choice to the dance moves is superb. Not to mention, the fashion choices are out of this world.
Beyonce has always been known for wearing regional and underground designers during her performances. Furthermore, her performance in Dubai featured several Middle Eastern designers. Many stand out pieces included her Lemonade yellow, floor-length gown with a feather train and the corseted red bodysuit paired with 80-carat diamond earrings and a crown. With wardrobe changes like that, it’s no wonder Beyonce’s Dubai concert was a hit.
