The "Love On Top" singer, 31, commanded the stage at the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas for a set that lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours, a source tells Us Weekly.
Before she ushered in 2013, Beyonce told the crowd, “I want you to think about everything beautiful in your life. I think that’s what you should visualize in 2013. So get that picture in your mind. I want you to think about everything you love.”
"She was incredible!” the showgoer says of the VIP event.
Bey donned custom designed outfits by European couture house Ralph & Russo for the performance, including a black-and-white rhinestone peplum number that she later posted to her Tumblr blog.
The singer was spotted arriving at a private airport in Vegas on Dec. 28 sans husband Jay-Z or daughter Blue Ivy, who turns 1 Jan. 7 (the couple's precious bundle of joy joined her musical mother in Vegas later on that weekend). Not that Beyonce traveled alone.
According to a source, Queen Bey was surrounded by "a lot of security people," and looked cool and collected in Shades skinny jeans and a leather jacket.
"It's hard to tell what mood she was in behind her big shades!" the source tells Us.
"I just saw Beyonce at the private airport in Las Vegas!" one Twitter user shared earlier in the day. "I think is safe to say she's the most gorgeous girl I have ever seen."
Jay-Z, who was in Brooklyn for New Year's Eve for his own concert with Coldplay, gave a shoutout to his wife during the sold-out show.
