Beyonce is a woman of many surprises and she pulled a new one out of her bag of tricks for the Coachella crowd last night. Queen Bey took to the stage during Solange’s set for an impromptu, big sister-little sister dance duo!
Toward the end of “Losing You,” the 32-year-old entertainer ran onstage and performed a synchronized routine with Solo. Rocking a fedora hat, floral dress and huge smile, there was no doubt that she had the time of her life. The sisters shared an embrace at the end of their number and Bey ran offstage immediately after.
The show took place at the Empire Solo Club in Indio, Calif. Before the “Drunk in Love” singer’s moment on stage, she was seen out and about on festival grounds, taking pictures and checking out shows from artists like Capital Cities and Cage the Elephant.
Bey’s hubby Jay Z also made a surprise appearance onstage with Nas to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his classic debut album, Illmatic. The hip hops legends rapped “Dead Presidents II” together then Jay transitioned into “Where I’m From.”
“Peace to the god Nas! I had to come all the way out here to celebrate 20 years of Illmatic.” he told the screening crowd of hipsters. “What an amazing accomplishment!”

That wasn’t he only special guest for Nasty Nas. Diddy rocked the stage with their 90’s hit “Hate Me Now.” “You gotta understand, if it wasn’t for you…Hip-Hop wouldn’t had arrived to this place right here,” Puff told the rapper. “It’s your 20th anniversary! God sent you to us! You’re a lyrical genius and musician. A[n] artist in its rarest form. And we celebrate you!”
And we can’t forget about Pharrell “Happy” Williams. He rocked the stage with crew of background dancers, that infamous hat and a number of his musical friends including Gwen Stefani, Odd Future, Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes! Check it out below.
