When people think of couples wearing similar outfits, their first thought may go to Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, who famously wore double denim at the 2001 American Music Awards.

There are few tracks that can get people moving the way Crazy In Love does when they first hit.

In 2004, two veterans took to the stage at the Grammy Awards, as Beyoncé joined Prince on stage to perform a mix of her hits.

Beyonce’s Drunk in Love era saw her go for snips for her hair, which made us all wish we could pull off a long bob with ease.
