The superstar closed her Formation World Tour in New Jersey on Friday (07Oct16) after being on the road since April (16).

Beyonce brought out special guests including Serena Williams and husband Jay Z to help close her Formation World Tour.

The Lemonade hitmaker took to the stage at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Friday (07Oct16) for the last time on her tour, and surprised the audience with a number of duets.

Beyonce brought out tennis ace Serena for her hit Sorry, which sent the crowd wild. The sports star, who appeared in the video for the track, rocked a black sequin embellished leotard and sat in a throne onstage before twerking along to the song.

The 35-year-old then performed with rapper Kendrick Lamar for an energetic rendition of Freedom, their duet from Beyonce's visual album Lemonade.

And the finale to her mammoth world tour included a surprise performance from husband Jay Z, who appeared with his superstar wife to sing their hit Drunk in Love.

It was the first time the pair had performed side-by-side in more than a year, and Beyonce gyrated against her husband while wearing a gold glittery two-piece outfit.

The show was filled with famous faces not just on stage, but in the audience too. Actor Hugh Jackman, Frank Ocean and Orange is the New Black star Taylor Schilling were all seen at the MetLife Stadium.

"There is only one Queen! @Beyonce #TheFormationWorldTour," Jackman wrote on Twitter on Friday, alongside a snap of him at the concert.
