Beyonce Knowles - Beyonce's Glastonbury Set Was 'Career Highlight'
Beyonce has called her set at Britain's Glastonbury festival the "highlight" of her career after making history as the first woman to headline the event's main stage.
The R&B superstar went down a storm at the predominantly rock 'n' roll festival with a triumphant set, which included medleys of her Destiny's Child hits, as well as her solo classics and new tracks from her upcoming 4 album.
She also paid tribute to Kings of Leon and Alanis Morrisette by performing renditions of their songs.
Beyonce was delighted by the reaction from the 170,000-strong crowd, and after finishing her set, the Crazy In Love hitmaker explained the festival slot had been a "dream"-like experience and admits she held back a wave of emotion as she came face-to-face with fans.
She tells the Bbc, "I'm completely high. It's so surreal, weird - just happy, and I wasn't kidding when I said this night is a dream. I felt like a rock star, and the crowd - they looked like rock stars, and I'm just so honoured, really. This was just, like, a highlight of my career.
"I was very nervous, and everyone gave me so much love. And I will never, ever forget this. At one point I had to stop myself because I got really emotional during Halo... (Afterwards) I just had to talk myself down, but I had a great time today."
