It’s been a long time since Beyonce has graced the stage of the BET Awards. The last time the singer was at the BET Awards, she closed the show performing “Run The World (Girls)” while overseas.

What is the return of our “Formation” without Bey performing at the BET Awards? Queen Bey returned to the 2016 BET Awards blazing the stage as she opened up the show with Kendrick Lamar.

The Formation World Tour dancers dominated the red carpet in precise formation as 8 p.m. approached, hinting toward a performance from Bey. To everyone’s surprise, she opened the show with her song “Freedom” off of her latest album Lemonade. Lamar joined the superstar on stage splashing in water and moving around with Bey and her dancers. In typical Beyonce fashion, the grind never stops. She ran straight from the stage to board an airplane to London to continue the tour.
