The BeyHive were in a frenzy as Beyoncé Knowles-Carter set to perform at the 50th annual Country Music Association Awards 2016.

 

It’s been a great year for Bey who has gone toe-to-toe to make sure her music’s messages have impact on today POP Culture. Nowadays a live televised performance from Beyoncé is a rare deal, so when the announcement came that she would perform at the CMA Awards 50 all fans (and some non-fans) took to social media to expression their opinions.

 

 

One thing that is certain, Mrs Carter is very strategic when it comes to where she chooses to perform, what she performs, the colour or even style of her hair. This year the 35-year old mother brought a Black Panther themed ‘Formation‘ performance, which received a huge stir from the media – which was probably her intention as it was only the night before that she released the singles music video… can we say buzz single …Hello! Shortly after the Superbowl performance (and I mean minutes), the tickets for Beyoncé’s world stadium tour were released… Ch-Ching!

 

A whole movie and surprise album later Beyoncé tag-teamed with ‘King Kunta’ rapper Kendrick Lemar to perform black liberation anthem ‘Freedom‘ & we also had the MTV VMAs where Beyoncé performed a medley of her entire album and if you paid close attention to the lights and visuals you’d have seen references to the police brutally against black people. So job done, we guess not!

In Nashville, last night, the Ivy Park founder brought her fan-favourite ‘Daddy’s Lessons’ to the CMA Awards, lending support from the Dixie Chicks. Dazzlingly her audience with her country dance movements, in her tight fitted gown, Beyoncé held her own on the country stage showcasing her versatility… but don’t just take our word for it. According to Billboard, speaking on Beyoncé said “She may not have been nominated for an award, but Beyoncé stole the show at the 2016 CMA Awards.”
