On Friday, Blue Ivy Carter joined her mother Beyoncé on stage in Paris for her Renaissance World Tour. It was a huge moment for the family and for fans, who are thrilled to see that talent runs in the family. The 11-year-old danced along with Beyoncé during “My Power,” which is off The Gift, a part of The Lion King soundtrack. She was also there for Beyoncé’s 2020 single, “Black Parade.”
“Give it up for Blue,” Beyoncé told the crowd, setting off a wild round of applause and cheering. The proud mom and her daughter were both dressed in silver jumpsuits and hit their choreography perfectly — not that anyone would expect otherwise.
Tina Knowles-Lawson, Beyoncé’s mother and Blue Ivy’s grandmother, could not hold back her feelings and took to Instagram to share a clip of the show.
“Last night I saw my beautiful grandbaby (11) dance in the front of almost 70 thousand people !” Knowles-Lawson wrote in the caption. “She killed it and was as cool as a cucumber! Blue Ivy Carter ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ No Fear❤️❤️.”
This wasn’t the first time Blue Ivy has joined her mom in a performance. In January this year, the super star did a set for the opening of the Atlantis The Royal Resort in Dubai, and Blue Ivy came in to duet with Beyoncé on their song “Brown Skin Girl.”
The pre-teen actually received a credit for writing on the song, which meant she received an official entry onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart and is an official Grammy winner.
The Renaissance World Tour started in Stockholm, Sweden, and will continue across Europe before the North American leg begins in the United States in July. Tickets have been a very hot commodity and with surprise guest stars like this, it’s no wonder.
