"Beyoncé didn't trip the earth tripped," one fan wrote on Twitter
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.
