In a blink-and-you-miss-it moment Beyoncé stumbled ever so slightly while performing at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show on Sunday – before immediately regaining her footing.

The singer live debuted her brand new single “Formation” at the show, taking center stage in front of a bevy of backup dancers.

The routine was going along flawlessly, as per usual, when Beyoncé did a backwards hop and lost her footing for the briefest of moments. In true Queen Bey form, she kept right on dancing – and somehow managed to make her misstep look like it was all part of the plan.

The Beyhive breathed a collective sigh of relief on Twitter:

Other die-hard fans insisted a Beyoncé fall was physically impossible as it would defy the laws of gravity:

“Beyoncé didn’t fall, the earth just fell out of orbit for a second that’s all that was,” wrote one user.

It became a whole thing:

“Beyoncé didn’t fall. The fall Beyonced.”

“Beyoncé didn’t fall she invented the new dance move.”

“Beyoncé didn’t trip the earth tripped.”

“Beyoncé didnt almost fall … all her back up dancers missed a move.”

“But honestly Beyoncé can never fall. Gravity knows better.”

We’re sure Blue Ivy never doubted her mom for a second as she watched from the sidelines:

The “fall” really has to be seen to be believed. Check out the video above for yourself.
