Will Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ shows have a surprise guest? We place our bets

Kate Lloyd

Grab your hot sauce and your lemonade: Beyonce’s bringing her ‘Formation’ tour to London this weekend. The singer’s performing at Wembley Stadium on both Saturday and Sunday, and while she’s not announced any special guests so far– we have a completely unfounded and potentially unrealistic fan theory about who she might bring on stage in London…

Kendrick Lamar

Not only did the pair perform a duet of their track ‘Freedom’ from Bey’s ‘Lemonade’ album at the BET Awards earlier this week, Kendrick’s also in London this weekend to perform in Hyde Park at British Summertime. His Hyde Park set is at 7pm on Saturday, while Bey is due to head on stage from 7.30pm to 10pm that night. If we were betting folk, we’d say there's a pretty good chance he’ll show up.

Totally made-up odds: 5/1

The Weeknd

Abel teamed up with Bey for track ‘Six Inch’ and is pretty much omnipresent at all music events. Plus, he’s already had a practice run at Wembley while supporting Rihanna.

Totally made-up odds: 5/1


The band brought Beyoncé out for a surprise performance at the Super Bowl, maybe it’s time for her to return the favour?

Totally made-up odds:10/1


James Blake

Apparently Blue Ivy was a fan of James and Bey's track 'Pray You Catch Me'. And the producer does have an album to promote... 

Totally made-up odds: 20/1

Florence Welch

Flo’s in London this weekend to play Hyde Park on Saturday, released a visual album just like Bey and fan-girled over ‘Lemonade’ when we chatted to her earlier this month. Could a duet be on the cards?

Totally made-up odds: 20/1

Jay Z

He’s recently released a new album, and even topped the bill Solange Jay Z When Bey last brought a tour to the UK, she ‘surprised’ everyone by performing ‘Drunk on Love’ alongside her husband every night. This time around it’s less likely, she has released an album in which she basically destroys him for cheating on her, and all..

Totally made-up odds: 30/1

Serena Williams

Sure, she’s not a singer so this is a bit of a curveball, but Serena not only appeared in Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ film, she also catwalked at Taylor Swift’s London show last year so she’s a well-practised guest.

Totally made-up odds: 300/1

Nicki Minaj

Could the duo team up for ‘Feeling Myself’? The video for it was a live performance, so you never know...

Totally made-up odds: 500/1

Jack White

The White Stripes rocker and connoisseur of potato salad both produced and performed on Bey’s track ‘Don’t Hurt Yourself’. His appearance on the album was a surprise in itself, so his live performance seems unlikely. He did recently do a surprise performance with Pearl Jam though.

Totally made-up odds: 1000/1

Vampire Weekend & Diplo

While this might sound like the set up for a bad BRIT Awards medley performance, Diplo and Ezra Koenig both helped Bey create ‘Hold Up’, arguably ‘Lemonade’s’ biggest banger.

Totally made-up odds: 2000/1

Destiny’s Child

A girl can dream.
