The 2017 Brazil Carnival Honors Beyoncé Even In Absentia

It recently became public knowledge the iconic Queen Bey [Beyoncé] was pregnant with twins. In other words would not make it to the world famous Carnival that goes down in Brazil every year [around this time].

However, according to BET, the “Bey Hive” [Beyoncé loyal fans] in Brazil helped make it clear that, although her presence was missed, they could try plug the gap, as it were. By any measure, this tribute definitely should make Beyoncé very proud indeed.

BET reports that 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.

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.”
