Those selfish vocal cords! How dare they keep Beyonce from a fun night out? The Beyhive only gets so many chances to see their queen appear in public, and you took one of those chances away from them, vocal cords. You better hope The Beyhive doesn’t locate your Instagram account. Just ask the producers of Grease: Live. But more on that in a second.
Beyonce was supposed to attend the Emmys last night. Lemonade was nominated for four Emmy awards, and Beyonce herself was nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special. Beyonce was supposed to show up last night. And if Beyonce shows up to something, you know there’s a 99.999% chance she’s going home with a trophy. Thanks to this seating chart, I fully expected Beyonce to become half an EGOT member last night.

But Beyonce never showed up last night. According to UsWeekly, she skipped the Emmys because her vocal cords were being a real Michelle. Beyonce was recently put on vocal rest after having some vocal cord problems. A source says Beyonce got sick and decided to rest instead of going to the Emmys. She’s still on tour and didn’t want to have to postpone any more shows.
The source adds that Beyonce was really flattered to be nominated, but she didn’t want to haul her glam squad to the Emmys. Looking like Beyonce is a huge production, and Beyonce was just too sick to be Beyonce last night.
Maybe one of those Ernst & Young guys called up Beyonce ahead of time and told her that a little envelope told them that she doesn’t need to come to the Emmys (wink wink catch my drift). Because Beyonce didn’t end up being called to the stage for Lemonade last night. Lemonade lost the Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special award to Thomas Kail and Alex Rudzinski for Fox’s Grease: Live. And shock of all shocks, The Beyhive was PISSED. UsWeekly says it didn’t take long for members of The Beyhive to take to Twitter and drag the Emmys for giving Beyonce’s award to Thomas and Alex. Even Jimmy Kimmel made a joke after they won about how he wouldn’t want to be either of them once Kanye West realizes Beyonce didn’t win. Don’t worry, Thomas or Alex: unless Kim Kardashian gets nominated for Most Lifelike Puppet Construction, you’ll never have to worry about seeing Kanye West at an Emmy awards.
The Beyive needs to chill for 1.3 million reasons, but this time it’s because: it’s just an Emmy award for direction, you guys. If you’re going to be mad at the Emmys for anything, it’s that they never gave her an Outstanding Theme Song award for The Proud Family.
Yes, that song is mostly Solange, but it’s nothing without Beyonce (ft. Destiny’s other children) warbling in the chorus. That was a hot song, and you slept on it, Emmy committee!
