Beyonce brings the house down with 2017 GRAMMYs performance


Beyonce skipped the red carpet at the 2017 Grammy Awards, but she definitely made up for it when she hit the stage an hour into the ceremony -- and to say she slayed would be an understatement.

Her mother, Tina Knowles, took the stage to introduce the pop diva. In her touching intro, she gushed about both of her daughters, Beyonce and Solange. Finally, she welcomed her eldest child on stage.

"Ladies and gentlemen, with a mother's pride, my daughter, Beyoncé," Tina said.

The 35-year-old songstress then emerged, wearing a jewel-encrusted nude sheer gown that hugged every bit of her stunning pregnancy body. She wore a matching bedazzled headband that wrapped around her long, curly tresses.

With her pregnancy, it's no surprise she strayed away from her usual sets filled with fast-paced dancing. Instead, she relied on her vocal pipes, stage presence and some mesmerizing special effects to create a performance that'll go down as one of the best in Grammys history.

She played a slew of hits from her chart-topping album "Lemonade," including "Sandcastles" and "Love Drought." Watch the full set here:

The incredible display of artistry received a standing ovation from the crowd.

"Thank you so much," Queen B said amid huge a round of applause.

The camera caught her hubby, Jay-Z, smiling and giving a nod. Blue Ivy was also spotted cheering for her mom in a bring pink pantsuit combination, which is seemingly a nod to the late music legend Prince.

Bey broke the internet (again) in early February when she revealed via Instagram that she's expecting twins! In her announcement, she's photographed sitting in front of a floral backdrop while wearing tasteful lingerie and a veil as she held her growing belly. The morning after the big announcement, she posted more images from the photoshoot on her website.

Her pregnancy comes at a big surprise, especially after sources revealed the Carters had troubles conceiving after Blue Ivy, now 5, was born.

Beyonce is nominated for nine Grammys this year, including Album of the Year for "Lemonade." She does have some stiff competition in the category, however. Pop songstress Adele is also nominated for her album "25."
