Beyonce was bashed on social media when it was announced that she was performing at the 50th annual CMA Awards on Wednesday.

“She’s not a country singer!” they cried. “She doesn’t deserve to be there!” they proclaimed.

But all those who were watching the CMAs live from Nashville, Tennessee — instead of the Game 7 clash between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians in the World Series — had their criticisms shot down by Beyonce’s breathtaking performance of “Daddy Lessons” from “Lemonade.”

Taking to the stage with (genuine) country singers The Dixie Chicks, Beyonce came out dressed in a white gown and pearls to easily steal the show — even after making her fans anxiously wait until the third hour.

“Loving this,” Reese Witherspoon tweeted.
