For tonight’s opening performance at the 2016 BET Awards, Beyonce surprised us all by showing up to deliver an insane set with her song “Freedom.” Strutting with conviction in each movement, she walked across water, surrounded by a sea of powerful dancers and blasts of fire. Kicking water up in the air throughout the performance and swinging around her braids, Beyonce absolutely killed it.
It definitely set the bar high for all performers to follow.
After Beyonce’s incredible performance, show hosts Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross gave their own performance of this year’s hits in the style of the Broadway show “Hamilton.”
Stay tuned for full performance video.
