Beyoncé performed for throngs of screaming fans Saturday night at Coachella after a year's wait. "Y'all ready Coachella?" As she opened her set, becoming the first woman of color to headline the music festival in Indio, California.

Excited fans had a new nickname for this year's festival: Beychella. Other headliners included the Weeknd and Eminem.

"Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline," Beyoncé said, before singing "Run the World (Girls)." She sang several songs from her album "Lemonade," backed up by the band and surrounded by step dancers.
