It's a day ending in Y, so are you ready to be completely blown away and inspired by Beyoncé? Great, me too. Which works out, because we have the first photos of Beyoncé from the Formation Tour, and considering they're accompanying the seven additional tour dates Bey just announced, they are honestly too much. Like, I consider myself a pretty calm, rational person, but I really cannot with these pictures. It's not even a phrase I use, but I truly can't right now. At all. It's one thing to completely change the game with both your music and the way you release it — all hail the originator of the surprise album — but I always forget that Beyoncé is also the best living performer. There was a time when I might have said "one of the best" or "arguably the best," but I hope we can all agree we're past that at this point. She's the best we have. Full stop. And if you still need convincing on that front, these photos will do it. 

They're from her Formation Tour stops at Miami's Marlins Park on Apr. 27, Tampa's Raymond James Stadium on Apr. 29, the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on May 1, and Carter Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina on May 3, and they are proof that this woman never ever has an off day. Or even an off minute, really. She's constantly camera-ready, even when she's simultaneously wrecking us with her vocal acrobatics and nailing insane dance moves without missing a beat. So it shouldn't surprise me that she is also the queen of the heart-stopping stage picture, but somehow she still got me with some of these photos. I literally gasped at some of them, and I can't wait for you to take a gander and have the exact same reaction. HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS.

1. That Iconic Silhouette

How does she do this? We can't even see her face in this one, but it's still stunning. Even her silhouette is iconic. 

2. This Look Is Everything

SERVING ME FACE FOR DAYS. Also this lighting is so on point. I can't stop looking at it.

3. Fierce AF

Oh, but also don't you dare even think about messing with her, because she'll hit you with a look like this.

4. This. Outfit.

I MEAN. I don't even know what else to say, she stages these shows like plays, she's a genius.

7. #SquadGoals

These women are all business, I love it.

This can't be real. Too fierce, must avert eyes.

10. Surveying Her Kingdom

Everything the light touches is yours, Beyoncé. Actually you know what? Just everything. It's all yours, you've earned it.

11. A Little Cognitive Dissonance for Good Measure

She's mastered the art of looking completely angelic and hard AF in the exact same moment.

12. Saved The Best For Last

And I had to save this one for last because I literally gasped for air when I saw it. I MEAN COME ON. We don't deserve her.

Honestly, I need to go lie down after looking at all of these. That, or empty my entire wallet directly into the internet to buy up tickets for every single stop on the Formation Tour.
