Welcome to Beychella: it's certainly safe to say that Beyoncé's history-making Coachella performance, postponed a year after her pregnancy prevented her from performing in 2017, was more than worth the wait. From the costume changes (all five of them) to the surprise cameos, here's everything you need to know...

Her performance made history

Bey is the first black woman to headline Coachella. In 2018. Let's just let that sink in, shall we?

There was a mini Destiny's Child reunion

The rumours were true: after months of speculation as to whether Bey would team up with her former bandmates for her Coachella set, Kelly and Michelle joined her for Lose My Breath, Say My Name and Soldier. The last time the trio reunited on stage was at the Superbowl back in 2013.

And Jay and Solange made an appearance, too

A family affair: Beyoncé was joined by her husband for a performance of Deja Vu, while Solange danced with her sister__ to Get Me Bodied.

The costumes were by Balmain

Not only did Balmain's Olivier Rousteing dress Beyoncé, he also created outfits for her 200 backing dancers and for Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Rousteing previously dressed the star for her 2016 Formation world tour.

She finished with Love On Top

Before her final song, Beyoncé alluded to last year's cancellation, telling fans: 'I was supposed to perform last year but I got pregnant, thank God. I had time to dream with two beautiful souls in my belly and this is everything and more I had in my dream, so thank you for sharing this with me.' She then finished with an acapella version of Love On Top. Next year's headliner certainly has a lot to live up to...
