Beyonce's debut Coachella performance pays tribute to Afro, Caribbean legends

Queen Bey is about to storm the desert.

As previously reported, Beyonce reunited with her original group, Destiny's Child, at Saturday's main event at the popular music festival.

The trio put in a rousing performance of their late 90s and early 2000s R&B classics Say My Name, Soldier and Lose My Breath.

Before last night they last performed together in 2015 at the Stellar Awards where they sang Say Yes.

While RuPaul's Drag Race star Aja added: 'Beyoncé at Coachella will be on my mind all month'.

Aside from the music, her performance had everything you'd expect from a Beyoncé show - high energy dance routines, insane vocals, glittery outfits, figure-hugging body suits and a lot of sparkle.

She's the first woman of color to headline the long-running music festival, according to CNN. The singer was forced to take the time to focus on her pregnancy, so festival organizers wanted her comeback to be extra special.

She stormed through almost every song she has ever released - including the world's quickest duet with husband Jay-Z - and even took the time to get a manicure halfway through the set.

Beyoncé's top-lining performance was also a historic one, as she became the first black woman ever to headline Coachella.

Destiny's Child, active from 1997 to 2006, included Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, LaTavia Roberson, LeToya Luckett and Farrah Franklin.

The 36-year-old performed hits from her new album Lemonade as well as some of her classics. "This is everything and more that I dreamed of it being", she gushed. "Can't wait to see y'all at 11:05pm!"

Beyonce's performance is groundbreaking not just for how flawless it was.
