Beyoncé To Perform On CMAs Same Night Of World Series


Hours before the show, it was announced Beyoncé will be performing tonight at the 50th Country Music Awards in Nashville.

The show will air live on ABC at 8 pm EST, which just so happens to be the exact same time the Cubs are facing the Indians in Game 7 of the World Series.

So here's how I imagine it went down with the ABC executive audience tests on this one:

Well played, ABC, well played, but don't think that us out here in the Beyhive aren't savvy to your tricks.


It's not yet confirmed whether Beyoncé will be performing solo or with another artist, but some are speculating she'll take the stage with the Dixie Chicks.

While Queen Bey is not traditionally a country singer, she has delved into the genre in the past, including on her most recent album, Lemonade, with the song "Daddy Lessons."

Many are speculating that will be the song she will perform in Nashville tonight.

Beyoncé also grew up in the South, in Houston, TX, so she's definitely well acquainted with the culture.

This is following in the long CMA tradition of bringing on mainstream, non-country artists to perform — last year Justin Timberlake took the stage with Chris Stapleton to sing "Tennessee Whiskey" and "Drink You Away."

OK ladies, now let's get in formation and figure out how to get our dads to lend us the remote for five minutes tonight to watch the Queen.

That, or you can just watch it on this live-stream.
