On stage at the Glastonbury Music Festival, Beyonce said that it was "her dream" to be there performing.
Following this performance, she'll be in the dreams of thousands of British music fans for a long time to come.
The R&B star, the first female headliner in the history of the festival, brought down the house Sunday night, wowing a screaming audience of 170,000+ fans. The bright lights of what is considered by some to be the biggest music festival in the world were no match for the singer, as she ran through some of her biggest hits, opening with "Crazy Like That" before moving on to songs like "Single Ladies," "Irreplaceable," and a medley of Destiny's Child favorites, including "Survivor" and "Say My Name."
She also sang her new single, "1+1," as well as "At Last," the song she sang during President Obama's inauguration in 2009. That performance came with a special civil rights-themed video montage -- which included video of that very inauguration. See her complete setlist here.
Her husband, Jay-Z, watched from the side of the stage alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, whose husband Chris Martin performed earlier with his band Coldplay. Jay-Z, in 2008, was the first hip hop act to play the festival.
To be sure, the performance is a great promotion for her new album, "4," which drops Tuesday. See stunning photos from the performance (video is last slide):
