“I just saw the greatest show to ever happen,” wrote Chance The Rapper.
The 2-hour long set featured guest appearances from both Jay-Z and Solange, as well as Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, who reunited with Beyoncé as Destiny’s Child, but at the end of the day, the best moments were all about Bey. Seeing that the performance was available to be streamed live, Twitter was bursting with memes, video clips, and immense praise as it aired, and the posts have continued well into Sunday morning.
It wasn’t just fans either. Artists and celebrities were just as excited as the BeyHive (then again, the two aren’t mutually exclusive). Chance The Rapper, who was at the live event, wrote, “I just saw the greatest show to ever happen.” 2 Chainzcalled it “hands down the best show on earth,” while Cara Delevigne wrote “I am speechless. That performance made me burst into tears and sent shivers down my spine. Especially the Destiny’s child reunion. ICONIC is an understatement. Thank you for inspiring so many and for lifting each other up.”
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, read some of the best reactions to the performance below.

1. To be the greatest of all time
2. To slay on all facets of life
3. To do the damn tings
e.g "I shall Beyonce my exams"
"I shall Beyonce that interview"
IT IS A DECLARATION!!!#Beychella

I need that whole performance released on 4K blu ray, with special features that show the planning that went in to executing that show. My Beyoncé savings account whenever its ready. #BEYCHELLA

Lift Every Voice and Sing, HBCU band, the pageantry and style, Beyoncé celebrated Black life & history at Coachella… It looked like a remix of 1920s chronicle pageants that Black dramaturges organized w/hundreds of actors. Stunning! #Beychella

Beyoncé performed almost 2 hours and still sounds amazing… jay-z has to rap 12 lines and sounded like he was about to have an asthma attack… men really are pathetic…

The Black National Anthem.
Malcolm X quotes.
Nina Simone samples.
Stepping and marching bands.
Jigga for the deja vu.
A Destiny’s Child reunion.
A Solange dance collabo.
The greatest living entertainer is a Black woman named Beyonce. This is not up for debate.#Beychella
