Bey took the stage in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Friday night for the first of four consecutive gigs at the newly-launched Revel resort, her first shows since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January.
She ran through a slew of her hits, including "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," " Irreplaceable," " Halo" and " If I Were A Boy," as well as material from her latest album, 4, including "Party" and "Countdown." Beyonce told the audience, "I gotta say, it feels so good to be back home on stage."
Partway through the show, Beyonce gave a nod to Whitney Houston by belting out one of her biggest songs. She also gave a nod to Donna Summer by introducing "Naughty Girl" with Summer's "Love To Love You Baby."

Beyonce's husband Jay-Z proudly watched on as his wife thrilled fans in the audience, and he took to his Twitter account to declare:
"I'm gonna say this and then I'm gonna end mine." BEYONCE is the best performer in the world. Period.— Mr. Carter (@S_C_) May 26, 2012
