The executives over at the Country Music Awards are doing damage control.

Beyoncé joined her husband Jay-Z during a Cleveland get-out-the-vote event in support of Hillary Clinton. The singer surprised fans with a performance of “Formation,” according to Entertainment Tonight.

Beyoncé came out in a black and white polka dotted pantsuit, joined by a team of backup dancers, all wearing blue pantsuits with “I’m With Her” t-shirts. Her appearance at the event was previously reported ahead of time, but you can see her entrance below.

During her performance, Beyoncé took the time to address the crowd and speak about why she’s supporting Clinton. “I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless,” she said. “But we have to vote. The world looks to us as a progressive country that needs change.”

Beyoncé then closed out her her set with a performance of “Run the World (Girls)” before Clinton herself walked out onstage to thank Beyoncé for her support. “I want to thank Beyoncé for standing up and showing the world we are strongest when we look out for each other,” the democratic nominee said.

After the show, Clinton shared a photo on her Instagram of herself hanging out with the couple taken shortly before the performance.
