Queen B!

It's no big secret that I'm a huge Beyoncé fan.

I love everything about her. 

She is an advocate for curvaceous women such as myself. 

She is strong and hard working, independent and intelligent. 

She is a philanthropist, an ambassador for many charities such as The Prince's Trust and a kind hearted, beautiful soul.

But mostly I love her because she's a cracking singer with super hot moves to boot and I was exceptionally excited to be seeing her perform live in concert again.

Well me and all of these people.

For the purpose of keeping my blood pressure under control, I'm going to keep telling you about it to a minimum and let the pictures do the talking.You ready? Okay let's go..

As to be expected, she came out pounding the stage with her entourage of delicious dancers and kicked off the night with "Run the World (Girls)?"

Of course we joined in with our fists held high and vocals in perfect harmony!

This was followed by a few more girl power numbers like "Irreplaceable", "If I were a Boy" & "Grown Woman" (The last of which is one of my favourites). 

You'll have noticed that we were also privy to a number of costume changes. Mainly hot pants or bodies with thigh high boots (do you blame her?!) and sparkly numbers. I liked the sparkles best.

In the interim we had the only two male performers, known to the world as 'Les Twins' (yes they are really French) to keep us entertained with various body popping choreography. 

These guys are sensational dancers and had us all captivated with their moves. If you want to catch a glimpse of them in action click hereBut for now, back to Queen B! If you've seen the music video for "Partition" you'll appreciate how epic this next bit was.  

Just when I thought I couldn't take any more, the smoke started poring out from the sides of the stage...

...and Jay Z came out to accompany her for 'Drunk in Love'!

Yes!!! Don't you just love a BOGOF? (Buy One Get One Free) 

It was just as adorable as it looks and despite the media claiming they may have a business deal marriage, they seemed very much in love to me.Now...replacing Jay Z on stage aint no easy task but our B did her best by rolling out a baby grand piano and rolling on it herself. We're happy with that, right?
The mood softened and her voice went from loud and seductive to pure and angelic as she performed a Whitney Houston tribute... which set off the streaming tears down my face.

Beyoncé also sang a beautifully gentle number called 'Heaven' which describes losing someone precious too soon. A feeling I'm sure we can all relate to and one which made the blubbering puffy eye situation a little worse, and set her off too it seems.

And with that heart wrenching finish, the stunning star drew her Mrs Carter show to a close and was escorted off the stage by her hunky chaperones.
It really was the most amazing concert I have ever had the privilege of witnessing. From start to finish I was filled with every emotion from excitement, elation, screaming fanaticism, love, humbleness and reflection. If you ever get the opportunity to see this legend perform, snap it up. You won't regret it! Pinky promise x
