Beyonce’s Renaissance World Tour Birthday Concert: Stars at the Show

When it’s the queen’s birthday, you make it to her performance by any means necessary. And that’s exactly what Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars did when they descended upon SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., for the final night of Beyoncé’s three-night Renaissance World Tour mini residency.

With a seemingly endless guest list that included the likes of Meghan Markle, Viola Davis, Adele, Kerry Washington, Timothée Chalamet, Angela Bassett, Kim Kardashian, Lizzo, Zendaya, Quinta Brunson, Chris Rock and the legendary Diana Ross, a slew of stars came decked out in their finest silver and chrome fashions to help Beyoncé celebrate her 42nd birthday.

The superstar opened the show as usual with a stunning rendition of several of her signature ballads, including “Dangerously In Love,” “1+1,” and a stirring cover of Tina Turner’s “River Deep, Mountain High.” Before launching into a performance of “Flaws and All,” Beyoncé delivered an impromptu, tearjerking speech, in which she thanked her parents, her children, husband Jay-Z and her fans for all of their love and support throughout her life and career. “I just wanna say, I feel so full. My heart is full. My soul is full,” she gushed. “I’m so thankful, Imma tryna not to cry. I’m thankful to be alive. I’m thankful to be on the stage … I’m thankful to be able to provide a safe place for all of y’all. I’m thankful for music, and for the ability to heal myself through music, which then heals all of you.”

“America Has a Problem” remix co-star Kendrick Lamar appeared for the very first live performance of the track, donning a worker bee outfit to match Queen Bey’s custom Mugler bee bodysuit. The night’s other special guest? The Boss herself. Ms. Diana Ross took the stage to perform “Love Hangover” — a 1976 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit and ballroom staple that Beyoncé’s backup singers perform at each show — and sing “Happy Birthday” to the most awarded act in Grammy history.

“I’m thankful that I’m here, at f—n 42!” Beyoncé exclaimed. And aren’t we all?
