Beyoncé is taking us behind-the-scenes of her Lion King-inspired album The Gift in a new TV special for ABC (or ABeyC, as its Twitter is now named) and it airs on the network tonight, Monday, September 16, at 10 PM. EST. Naturally, her fans are pretty damn hyped about it.
Beyoncé shared the news on Instagram with a teaser trailer of the special, which promises viewers the opportunity to “experience the process” of putting an album like this together. Expect appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, and more.
Making The Gift‘s announcement follows Beyoncé’s recent snub at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which saw Homecoming beaten by the Paul McCartney episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke in the Outstanding Variety Special. Her Netflix special also lost out to other nominees in five other categories including Writing, Directing, Costumes, Product Design, and Music Direction.
Naturally, fans were (and still are) furious about Bey’s loss, but the announcement of Making The Gift seems to have softened the blow somewhat. Find the best reactions below.
