With summer here, so too is one of music’s biggest calendar nights – the BET Awards 2018!
And while the show has historically played host to many a major name, none have been more synonymous with the extravaganza than Beyonce.
So, as we await word on whether Queen Bey and hubby Jay-Z will surprise us with a performance during tonight’s festivities (you know, new album and all), we take it back 15 years to Mrs Carter’s first solo BET “moment.”
At the 2003 ceremony, a then rising Bey gave a rousing rendition of her breakthrough smash ‘Crazy In Love’ – the first single from her debut ‘Dangerously In Love.’ An album celebrating its 15th anniversary this very week.
In now-trademark Beyonce fashion, the showing was high octane and flaunted the fire that inhabited the luminous star. Reenacting much of the iconic choreography from the track’s video, the entertainer had the whole audience on their feet, including Destiny’s Child alumnae Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, as well as sister Solange.
Oh how far has Yonce come! Ironically, she already possessed all the qualities the world loves her for. What’s so incredible is how she has managed to polish and perfect them over the years while retaining that raw potency.
It’s been an incredible 15 years for the mother-of-three and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next 15.
