Beyoncé at Coachella Dubbed Beychella

Having formally disbanded in 2006, the three members do get together for occasional performances and this was a ideal example of a pre-planned addition to Beyoncé's set which means that many fans in Europe are hoping that this will happen again as she tours the continent later this year. Beyoncé not only made history as the first woman of color to headline the festival solo, but her performance even inspired a new name for the almost 20-year-old event: #BeyChella. She had been scheduled to headline last year's festival, but had to postpone because of her pregnancy. She even performed "Lift Every Voice and Sing", known as the national black anthem.

Watch the moment Russell Westbrook clinched another triple-double season
The record was on Westbrook's mind from the opening tipoff Wednesday as he had just one point and 11 rebounds at halftime. While Westbrook scored only six points, his figures gave him a triple-double average for the second successive season.

In all, the performance proved to be truly historic-and fans seem to agree, with many calling for the music festival to be renamed "Beychella".
