From dress to dance, Beyonce's Dubai show 'iconic' with Lebanese touch
A Lebanese dance group who won last year’s season of 'America’s Got Talent' joined globally renowned superstar Beyonce during a show in Dubai on Saturday, wowing viewers across the world.
The superstar’s 70-minute show took place during the grand opening of Atlantis the Royal, a new luxury beach resort in Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah. She reportedly earned $24 million.
Footage shared online showed the "iconic" performance with the all-female precision dance crew Mayyas sharing the stage with Beyonce, who donned a red gown made by Lebanese world renowned designer Nicolas Jebran.

The show also featured music from Lebanese singing and musical icon Fairouz, according to reports, which added that videos had to be leaked as no filming was allowed.
Mayyas thanked Beyonce for the opportunity and wrote on their Instagram page: "It was an absolute honour to share the stage with the one and only Queen Beyonce. This moment is dedicated to all the dreamers and believers of the world."
Fans and other social media users poured online to express their delight watching the team of Middle East dancers join the celebrity, often referred to as "the goddess of pop," giving them further recognition after winning what is probably the world's biggest talent show in September.
