Beyonce performed a 90-minute set which she received $24 million for. The show was full of her hit songs and stunning wardrobe, but what everyone loved the most was the special guest she brought up to the stage, her 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

They Performed Together

"Where are all my brown skin girls? Give it up for my baby, my brown skin girl, Miss Blue Ivy Carter," introduced the pop star. The pair sang Brown Skin Girl, a collaboration between mother and daughter that was made for The Lion KingThe Gift.

The Inspiration Behind Her Look

While Beyonce was wearing a yellow corset with feathers from Atelier Zuhra in Dubai, Blue was shining in a big red tulip skirt suit. Her outfit was inspired by the sunset and took about a month to make.

She Looked Like Royalty

The show was split into three sets; for the second third, Beyonce appeared with another outfit, a custom red and gold corseted catsuit with a long skirt designed by Nicolas Jebran. She completed the look with a halo-look crown, which made her look like royalty, as Vogue stated.

A Look For Each Set

She contacted the Ukrainian designer Ivan Frolov for her third and last look. This time she showed up with a tiny hot pink and silver dress, long gloves, and thigh boots. All the looks were on point with Beyonce's usual style; however, she couldn't show as much skin due to the Muslim country's regulations.

Who Was With Her

Her parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles, were in the public, along with her husband, Jay Z, and her children, Rumi, Sir, and, of course, Blue. Her performance was a complete surprise for all the guests, who only knew they would experience the show and weekend of their lifetime, according to the invitation made by the hotel.

About The Set

Halo, XO, Freedom, and Crazy In Love, were some of the songs featured on the setlist. The showed closed with Drunk In Love, one of her greatest hits featuring Jay Z. Though she didn't sing any tunes from her latest album, Reinnasance, the whole show was filled with fireworks and professional Lebanese dancers.

It Was A Huge Event

Beyonce's surprise performance wasn't the only way of promoting the luxurious Atlantis hotel. They also released a song by Tate McRae featuring DJ Tiesto filmed across the resort facilities and made a deal with Kendall Jenner's tequila brand, 818. Of course, several other celebrities were invited, such as Rebel Wilson and former One Direction member Liam Payne.
