Watch Beyonce Blow Away Fans, Silence Critics With CMAs Performance (Video)

Queen Bey performs “Daddy Lessons” with the Dixie Chicks at 50th annual awards show

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.
