Beyoncé gave us another performance of a lifetime when she took the stage at the 2017 Grammy Awards, her first performance since announcing her pregnancy.
The singer has performed while pregnant before — you’ll remember she knocked it out of the park at the 2011 VMAs while carrying Blue Ivy — so, we knew she’d slay.
Beyoncé was introduced by her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, before taking the stage and performing hits from her recent album Lemonade, which is up for Album of the Year and Best Urban Contemporary Album. Beyoncé is also nominated for Record and Song of the Year for “Formation” and Best Rock Performance with “Don’t Hurt Yourself.”
The performance was an epic show filled with Black girl magic.

The couple are already parents to daughter Blue Ivy, 5.

“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes,” the “Formation” singer wrote on Instagram, later giving fans a glimpse into her maternity photo shoot featuring Blue.
Beyoncé is the most nominated woman in the history of the Grammys, with 62 nominations.
The mom-to-be is up for nine awards Sunday, including album of the year, best music film and best R&B urban contemporary album for Lemonade, song of the year, record of the year and best music video for “Formation,” best pop solo performance for “Hold Up,” best rap/sung performance with Kendrick Lamar for “Freedom,” and best rock performance with Jack White for “Don’t Hurt Yourself.”
Despite rumors of marital strife following the release of Lemonade, a source close to Beyoncé and Jay Z recently told PEOPLE, “They are a power couple and they make a great team. They know they are more interesting together than apart.”
