Beyoncé and Tina Lawson Showed Up to Support Solange During Her SNL Debut

It was a family affair.

Last night, Solange Knowles made her debut appearance as the featured musical guest on Saturday Night Live.

Solange looked like a heavenly 1970s angel in a custom Swarovski crystal dress and earrings by Erickson Beamon with a sparkly halo headpiece as she took the stage to perform "Cranes in the Sky" from her new album, A Seat at the Table.

Later, she changed into a sleek white crop top and trousers with futuristic metallic boots for her performance of "Don't Touch My Hair."

Mom Tina Lawson and big sis' Beyoncé (perhaps you've heard of her) turned up to Studio 8H to show their support. But even though Solange is a 30-year-old woman with a husband, a child, and a #1 album, that doesn't mean she's not still the baby of the fam—and Tina and Bey weren't about to let her forget it.

In an adorable video shared on Tina's Instagram, the proud mama and Queen B join Solange on the iconic SNL stage, where they proceeded to scoop her up in their arms, despite her protests: "I'm 30 years old!!!"

"She's still our baby ❤️ We have Been picking her up like this since she was 10 yrs old . On the legendary SNL stage❤️," the caption read.

Then this happened:

After the show, the family celebrated with some of the SNL cast members—and Leslie Jones made sure to snag a seat next to Bey and Jay.

The comedienne snapped a few selfies with the couple (because obviously), and was clearly struggling to contain her excitement (because obviously).
