Kicking off the awards show, Queen Bey, who recently wrapped up the North American leg of her FORMATION World Tour, popped up for a pleasant surprise to launch the awards show. She busted out a performance of her black pride anthem, “Freedom,” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
The “Formation” singer’s backup dancers marched through the audience to the front of the stage as Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech played. Then, Mrs. Carter, rocking long braids, appears after a gust of smoke disappears rocking a lace body suit to hit perform the water routine that we’ve seen on the FORMATION Tour.
West coast rapper Kendrick Lamar then joined Bey on stage to spit his 16 bars and kick around some water with the Queen. And it was everything.
