Watch Beyonce’s Emotional ‘Love Drought/Sandcastles’ Grammy Performance [Video]
Beyonce gave an epic performance of her songs “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” at the 2017 Grammys. Watch the pregnant superstar’s emotional act.
Beyonce was introduced to the Grammy stage by her mother, Tina Knowles, who rightfully bragged about both of her Grammy-nominated daughters, according to Variety.
“Ladies and gentleman, with a mother’s pride, Beyonce.”
Beyonce recently announced that she and her husband Jay Z were pregnant with twins on Instagram. Jay Z and their daughter Blue Ivy watched from the front section of the audience.
Beyonce began her performance with holographic imagery projected onto a screen that eventually gave way to the pregnant singer walking out on the live stage. Beyonce performed a combination of two tracks from her visual album Lemonade, “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.”
The singer intertwined spoken poetic lines into the performance and at one point, there were images of the three generations of her family, including her mother, and her daughter Blue Ivy.
Beyonce was decked out in a golden gown and headdress as she performed on a long table surrounded by backup dancers.
Her epic Grammy performance was an ode to motherhood, with many images alluding to childbirth.
Beyonce was nominated for nine Grammys this year for her visual album Lemonade.
The superstar won the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
Beyonce’s Grammy performance was not the typical upbeat act with acrobatics and fast dancing. Instead, the pregnant singer showed off her softer side, looking heavenly with a gold crown headpiece on her head and lyrical, emotional choreography.
The pregnant singer relied on projected images which flashed as the pre-taped voice-over delivered some spoken word about healing and motherhood, according to Vox.
