Everything That Went Down On Opening Night Of Beyonce's "Formation World Tour"

It was LIT.

Published April 28, 2016

It all went in Miami last night (April 27) as Beyonce’s Formation World Tour kicked off, and from what we’ve seen, at least on social media, it was spectacular.

The Houston songstress released her visual album Lemonade over the weekend and it had everyone getting in formation as fans and the media world alike have been buzzing since. Knowing this, everyone expected Wednesday night to be a big one, and Beyonce delivered.

Prior to Bey’s set was a performance by DJ Khaled, who brought everyone and their uncle on stage as Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Future, and Trick Daddy joined him.

Even before that, Ross was spotted with Jay Z backstage.

Kicking off her set Beyonce performed “Formation.”

It’s crazy that everyone knows the lyrics to an album that was released just days ago.

Then she performed an insane mash-up of "Bow Down" and Hov’s "Tom Ford."

Was the crowd ready for “Run The World?” Yeah.

After performing a few more mash-ups, “Hold Up” and “Countdown,” she surprised the crowd with a little with a rendition of “Me, Myself, and I,” which prompted her to talk about her family including Blue Ivy.

Then, after trotting out "Runnin' (Lose it All)" and calling “All Night” her favorite song from Lemonade, Bey performed a few more mash-ups including an epic one of "Ring the Alarm," "I Been On," "Independent Woman," and "Naughty Girl."

Oh and then another one of "Diva," "U Mad," and O.T. Genasis' "Cut It."

After a few interludes, the Queen returned to jump into a version of "Drunk in Love" mixed with Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools (Drank)." This was followed by renditions of "Rocket" and "Partition."

After a few more songs came the most epic portion of the night began with Beyonce bringing two fans on-stage to perform “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)."

Then came her tribute to Prince as she performed “Purple Rain” on a dimly-lit stage. She of course was in a giant purple box.

After a few more songs, she went back to her roots and performed a few of her Destiny’s Child hits, including "Survivor" and a mash-up of "End of Time" and "Grown Woman."

To close out the night Queen Bey dedicating her performance of “Halo” to her husband, Jay Z, daughter, Blue Ivy, Prince and God. It shut down the whole damn thing and made the night one to remember for everyone in attendance.
