Beyonce Makes History With Amazing Perfomance At Glastonbury Festival

Beyonce headlined this year's Glastonbury Festival, England, and delivered one of the very best performances of her entire career. Thus, 29-year-old Beyonce became the first woman in 20 years to headline Britain's iconic festival, believed to be the biggest rock festival in the world. In 2008, her husband Jay-Z was the first hip-hop star to headline Glastonbury and last night, he was watching his wife at the top of her game, in what was one of this year's most-anticipated performances.

Beyonce reportedly rehearsed for 10 hours each day, preparing for Glastonbury and what a great set it was. Amazing energy, singing and dancing and a fantastic crowd who went crazy as Beyonce performed hit after hit: Crazy in Love, Single Ladies, Baby Boy, Naughty Girl, Irreplaceable, Halo, If I Were A Boy, Sweet Dreams (her own hit mashed up with Eurythmics' song of the same name).

Beyonce also covered Prince's The Beautiful Ones, Kings of Leon's Sex on Fire, Etta James' At Last and part of Alanis Morissette's You Oughta Know, and she performed tracks from her new album, including Run The World (Girls), the new single Best Thing I Never Had, the ballad 1+1, and what I can only hope will be her next single, the track called End of Time.  Beyonce also sang a medley of hits from her Destiny's Child era.

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this performance. It was perfect, from beginning to end. It was the kind of performance that deserves a DVD/Blu-Ray release. Beyonce sang for about one hour and a half in front of 175,000 people and some other millions watching live broadcast across the world. Way to go, Beyonce. She proved once again that on stage she delivers effortlessly. This is one of those concerts that needs to be seen in its entirety to get a feel of how good it really was. And kudos to a great crowd who sang, cheered and enjoyed every minute.
