Lizzo shared images of the moment she choked when putting her hands on the instrument. Despite her enthusiasm, she was sure to handle the instrument with care and she told the fans:

Bitch, I’m scared. It’s made of glass. It’s like playing with a wineglass bitch, so be patient.”

Bitch I just twerked and played James Madison’s 19th century flute. We just made history tonight! Thanks to the Library of Congress for preserving our history and making history great. The story is great, guys.”

Just days before Lizzo’s performance, Carla Hayden, the first African American woman and librarian of Congress, invited Lizzo to see the flute in a tweet. Lizzo’s excited response got things moving, and handlers brought the flute onstage at her concert on Wednesday night.

The Library later tweeted that the flute returned safely with the help of local police.
