Awesome / Beyoncé

  • Calling out Kanye West for bashing Taylor Swift (in a very coolheaded manner).
  • She goes up through four octaves within about a minute and a half at the end of "Love On Top". She can do this live. And while pregnant.
  • That halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII (2013). Holy shit, that was epic.
    • Especially remembering that she had recently come under fire for singing the National Anthem to a backing track at the Presidential inauguration about a month before. Despite nearly a decade of being a very talented performer, that fiasco required a certain amount of damage control, and boy did she pull it off.
      • The best damage control for the National Anthem fiasco was when she attended a Super Bowl-related press conference, asked the audience to stand...and proceeded to sing the Star-Spangled Banner flawlessly a cappella. After she finished, she looked into the crowd and simply asked, "Any questions?" Boom.
  • The audience at her 2011 Glastonbury set sings the entire first half of "Irreplaceable" back to her. Doubles as Heartwarming as she is absolutely delighted by their response.
  • On December 13, 2013, she suddenly dropped a surprise album without any promotion on iTunes. It sold through the roof anyway, with 600,000 sold in the United States and 1 million copies sold worldwide in its first week of release. She's also the first woman to ever have all five of her albums debut at #1.
    • With Lemonade she becomes the first and so far, only person to have their first six albums hit or debut at #1.
  • Lemonade. Just...Fucking Lemonade.
    Todd: If it wasn't obvious before, it is now: Do not. Fuck. With Beyoncé.
  • She and The Dixie Chicks stole the show at the 2016 CMA Awards with a performance of "Daddy Lessons". The song had been slated by some country media accounts for not being truly a country song or that she had no right to do a country song. So what does she do? Perform it at the genre's highest award show, and sing it with the Dixie Chicks. The performance has been recognized as a very sly Take That! to the insular and conservative country music industry for the blacklisting of the Dixie Chicks over a decade earlier for their controversial comments about Former President George W. Bush and the Iraq War, and to the racist backlash the CMA received for even daring to book her on the show.
