BEY BLOWS 'EM AWAY AT COACHELLA (WITH CAMEOS BY JAY AND DESTINY'S CHILD)

Beyoncé's unbelievable, cast-of-millions Coachella production included (as rumored) a reunion with the gals of Destiny's Child as well as hubby Jay-Z. The performance has inspired rapturous reviews in the press and massive buzz (it's also catapulted Bey's acclaimed Columbia set Lemonade back into the iTunes Top 10).

Bey strode out with a giant marching-band cast of dancers and players and kicked off with "Crazy in Love," followed by a blistering "Freedom," a thundering "Formation," a rich "Sorry" and other huge hits. Jay-Z strode out for a pulsing "Deja Vu," and as promised, Destiny's Child joined her onstage (rocking "Say My Name"). A relentless New Orleans-style dance party vibe pervaded the proceedings. How does she keep up the energy level? Don't ask us; we need a nap after writing this paragraph.

Wanna know who really enjoyed the performance at home? Bey's labelmate and #1 fan, Adele. Check this clip from Instagram, in which the British singer manages to overcome that vaunted English reserve:

The run-up to Her Royal Bey-ness included Post Malone, who had the whole dusty throng singing together (and who was joined by Ty Dolla $ign for smash "Psycho").
