New Orleans’ Big Freedia introduces Beyoncé at Superdome

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — In royal fashion, New Orleans’ own Queen of Bounce brought out Houston’s own Queen Bey at the Superdome.

Big Freedia tells ‘ The Times-Picayune ( ) that she was asked to go onstage shortly before the start of Saturday’s night’s concert.

In her words, “Well, they’re very secretive about everything so I got the call at the last minute.”

She wore the black Victorian-style costume that Beyoncé’s dancers wore for “Formation.” She told the audience, “Slay! Slay! Slay! Are you ready, New Orleans? The one and only!”

After leaving the Superdome early Sunday, Big Freedia told the newspaper that just before she went onstage, Beyoncé kissed her hand. She said, in her words, “I just died on the steps.”
