Beyoncé takes to the LA stage for a SURPRISE performance last night

The crowd went wild last night at the fifteenth annual BET Awards in Los Angeles, when Queen B took to the stage to perform a live rendition of Freedom, a track from her album Lemonade.

She opened the show with rapper Kendrick Lamar, who is set to headline Longitude this month in Marlay Park, and quite literally brought the house down. There was smoke, lava and some fireworks- casual Sunday night. 


The best part? It was a total surprise! Bey was not supposed to be performing at the awards, and was not even included on the set list. 

The awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Network to celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and all other areas of entertainment.


To top off the major excitement of her performance, Bey also took home the award for Best Female R&B Artist! Among the other winners were Drake, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.

What a night! All hail Queen B!
