French skater is the first to perform Beyoncé on ice
Finally, it’s “Beyoncé on Ice.”
Queen Bey made it to the Olympics — in spirit, at least — when French figure skater Maé-Bérénice Méité performed to a medley of “Run the World (Girls)” and “Halo” during the ladies single skating short program team event.
Méité told Cospmopolitan.com she chose the diva’s tunes Sunday because it “is crazy, wild, and fun. You can just dance to it, and that’s how I am.”
Méité came in ninth with a score of 46.62, but the judges at home were all holding up 10’s.
“@MBMeite From the moment I saw you wearing that 🔥🔥🔥 jumpsuit I knew you were gonna be ICONIC, and then you go and skate to Beyoncé 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Also you’re gorge 😍,” tweeted Beck Nielsen.
“Black sequin jumpsuit and skating to Beyoncé? Meite is GOALS. #Olympics2018,” wrote Lizzie Moore.
This is the first year skaters are allowed compete to music with lyrics.
