How many times did you watch #Beychella this weekend? Twice? Four times? Six times plus every Instagram excerpt you could get your hands on? Six times, with commentary? Did you already write about it in your diary???

The Jezebel staff collectively watched Bey’s drumline/step team Beyxtravaganza like sixty-seven and eleventy-third times, and though we have not yet committed every second to memory, we have enjoyed rehashing it multiple times on Monday, at the expense of nearly everything else, including feeding ourselves and returning any texts from our friends that do not make mention of Beychella. But one aspect where we differ is which part of her performance we are most currently obsessed with. Me, I’m still swooning over the choreography, by the genius JaQuel Knight, which was so innovative and also so referential to black cultural history in the most inspiring way. They snapped! (As in, literally did the snap dance!)

Or perhaps it was when she brought out Kelly and Michelle for a little Destiny’s Child reunion, and they performed a segment of one of their greatest less-heralded jams, “Say My Name (Timbaland Remix)”?!!!

Was it when you were like “Oh shit, Les Twins! They’re still alive!”

Or when Solange came out for the extended remix of “Get Me Bodied,” doing the instructional dance within it, harking back to block-party classics like “The Cha-Cha Slide” but putting their own Knowles sisterhood within it. (To everyone who said it was a “dance-off”: It was NOT a dance-off!!!)

🐝

Or was it the part within that performance where, during the “tick-tick-tick-fight” part of the lyrics, they did the pop-lock slow-motion punch routine from the video?

Or what about the part where Beyoncé, the day after her performance, donated $100,000 to four historically black colleges (Tuskegee University, Bethune-Cookman University, Xavier University, and Wilberforce University), just another element of her ongoing BeyGOOD scholarship fund directed towards students attending HBCUs?

There was so much to obsess over! Take this poll and if we missed something tell us your favorite part in the comments!
