Beyonce — arguably the most highly-anticipated act at the event — did not disappoint.
The performer, who was pregnant with twins, was introduced by her mother, Tina Knowles, who bragged about her Grammy-nominated daughters.
“Ladies and gentleman, with a mother’s pride, Beyonce,” Knowles announced.
Beyonce started her performance with holographic imagery projected on a giant screen that eventually gave way to the singer walking out live on stage. During the visually striking show, Beyonce performed two tracks from “Lemonade” — “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” — sung between poetic lines. And during this electrifying performance, Beyonce lost her balance and fell during a live performance.
The injuries from the fall led to internal bleeding which ultimately led to her losing the twins. The star, who is devastated by the news was rushed to the hospital while unconscious and doctors delivered the sad news after 5 hours in ICU.
The family has asked media outlets to respect their privacy in this difficult time.
