Performing anything Beyoncé-related is a bold choice (when someone chooses “Love On Top” as their karaoke song, you know they’re confident in their skills!), and one French figure skater’s performance at the PyeongChang Olympic Games might’ve even made Queen Bey’s jaw drop.
This year marks the first Olympic games in which competitors are allowed to use music featuring lyrics, Cosmopolitan reported, and Maé-Bérénice Méité decided to go big with an empowered combination of “Halo” and “Run the World (Girls).” Even better, she wasn’t rocking the standard dress you typically see on the rink: She skated her heart out in a fierce gold-sequined jumpsuit.
“[Her music] is crazy, wild, and fun. You can just dance to it, and that’s how I am. It’s different! But I’m different, too, so I was like, ‘Why not go for it?’ I wanted to do something that was very me, something fun, something I would enjoy.” —Maé-Bérénice Méité
“[Her music] is crazy, wild, and fun,” Méité told Cosmopolitan. “You can just dance to it, and that’s how I am. It’s different! But I’m different, too, so I was like, ‘Why not go for it?’ I wanted to do something that was very me, something fun, something I would enjoy.”
If you want a little inspiration to kick off your week on a fierce note, watch a clip of Méité’s performance below. With her energy, spirit, and insane talent, this girl is definitely one to watch. (Warning: Effects might include making you want to figure skate and/or dance around to Bey.)
