The 2017 Carnival in Brazil Honoring Beyoncé Is the Best Thing on the Internet Today

The 2017 Carnival in Brazil Honoring Beyoncé Is the Best Thing on the Internet Today

Never not in formation.

Published March 2nd

While this year's Carnival was unfortunately one that Beyoncé had to miss out on herself, likely due to being pregnant with twins, a group of her loyal fans have helped make it clear that, although her presence was missed, her Rio De Janeiro chapter of the #BeyHive was sure to do the icon justice.

In the past, Beyoncé herself has indulged in the lively affair, even donning a Carnival-inspired get-up decked out in sequins and a fierce headdress to match. Back in 2010, Bey linked with Alicia Keys during the world famous street festival and, during their time there, filmed segments for their acclaimed duet "Put it in a Love Song."

For this year's homage to Queen Bey, over 600 people auditioned, with 140 male and female dancers being selected to do the honors — and in heels, no less.

While rocking costumes directly inspired by the yellow dress Bey wears in her infamous Lemonade visual, the dancers performed incredibly on-point choreography to the ever-excited crowd in attendance for Carnival.

This tribute definitely should make Beyoncé proud and we're more than here for it. Take a look at a clip from the organized salute below.
