The theme was motherhood, and Beyoncé‘s Grammys performance was christened by her own mother, Tina.

It was a spiritual performance, one heavy on symbol and imagery, much like her record-breaking pregnancy announcement. At one point, Tina, Beyoncé, and daughter Blue Ivy were projected onstage. She kicked off the performance with “Love Drought,” then segued into “Sandcastles,” both from the Grammy-nominated Lemonade.

While we all wiped our brows, Blue Ivy found her way into the next “Carpool Karaoke” segment. She already knows how to get that prime meme time.

In her acceptance speech for best urban contemporary album, Beyoncé further stressed the importance of images and representation.
