Beyoncé came onto the stage at the 2017 Grammys like an angel, a warrior, a queen, a reckoning, and gave
a showstopping performance celebrating motherhood, and championed pride for “every child of every race” when she accepted the award for best urban contemporary album for “Lemonade.”
In other words, Beyoncé’s performance at the 2017 Grammys was the unreal revelation we all expected, hoped for, and frankly, needed.
The performance was an ode to motherhood. She was introduced by her own mom, Tina Knowles, who beamed with pride at her daughter’s accomplishments. At one point, three generations of the family knelt together on the stage: Tina, Blue Ivy, and Beyoncé, cradling her gorgeous pregnant belly. It was a movement. It was so many minutes of spoken word poetry and a mashup of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.”
At the end, Beyoncé stood buoyed by women, arms raised. She gave her benediction: “If we’re going to heal, let it be glorious.”
Regardless of whether she wins Album Of The Year for Lemonade, she is the ultimate winner of our hearts. Long Live Queen Bey.
