Queen Bey is back, baby! In her first performance in four months– since the birth of Blue Ivy– Beyoncé Knowles returned to the stage for a Memorial Day weekend extravaganza at Revel Resort & Casino in Atlantic City for four nights of exhilarating performances. During the two hour set one of the biggest stars in the world performed nearly two dozen crowd favorites like “Single Ladies,” “Get Me Bodied,” “Halo,” “Love On Top” and others. Celebrities from near and far traveled to Atlantic City to see the return of the Queen. It’s not like we didn’t know pals Michelle Obama and Beyoncé gush over one another all the time, but we weren’t expecting the First Lady to show up to Bey’s concert with daughters Sasha and Malia. It’s pretty major when the First Lady of the United States, with Secret Service in tow, comes to see you.
Jennifer Hudson, The Dream, husband Jay-Z, Queen Latifah, Selita Ebanks, Governor Chris Christie and Kim Kardashian were among the list of celebrities that flocked to see the 30-year-old R&B star give it her all during the two hour set. In support of his beau, Bey’s hubby tweeted, “I’m gonna say this and then I’m gonna end mine. BEYONCE is the best performer in the world. Period.” The Dream was equally impressed tweeting, “Beyonce Knowles May very well be the Baddest MFkr on stage Live Since MJ! Period! Point Blank.”
If there was ever any question if having Blue Ivy was going to help or hurt her career, that question was answered and put to rest this weekend. It’s Beyoncé, and they don’t call her Queen Bey for no reason. Is Beyonce the best living performer as Jay tweeted? What do you think about the First Lady showing up with Sasha and Malia? Check out our gallery of the Queen doing what she does best.
