A Beyoncé fan went viral on TikTok after multiple concert attendees recorded his elaborate dance moves, with some calling for him to become an official tour performer.On May 21, a TikToker who goes by @emmaneilson0 posted a video with a caption that read, “Beyonce’s unofficial warm up was phenomenal!” The clip, filmed during Queen Bey’s recent stop at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, Scotland, during her Renaissance World Tour, showed a man enthusiastically dancing for over a minute while a crowd could be heard cheering in the background.The video received more than 664,000 views, including one from a viewer who goes by Frankie Duncan who wrote he was the dancer in question. Duncan re-posted the video to his own account with the caption, “The fact that I have become Beyoncé’s unofficial warm up at her concert has me GAGGED!”Multiple concert-goers captured the performance from several more angles, including a TikToker who goes by @lori_santana who posted a video of the dancer from behind as he flipped and slid on the ground in front of a crowded stand of fans, who could be seen clapping and cheering him on.
Santana’s video received over 900,000 views and 670 comments, many of which called for him to be officially included on the tour. “We need Beyoncé to see this and actually have him make an appearance,” one viewer wrote in a top comment that received 560 likes.”I have seen so many viewpoints of this amazing dancer and I love it,” a further comment read which received 370 likes.Comments across both videos overwhelmingly complimented Duncan’s confidence and skill and some enthusiastic viewers tagged Beyoncé’s TikTok account in a bid to get her attention. Beyoncé’s representatives did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.A few days later, on May 23, Duncan posted a video that showed him dancing alone while the track “AMERICA HAS A PROBLEM” by Beyoncé played in the background. An on-screen caption read he was practicing his moves, “just incase Beyoncé brings me on stage at the renaissance tour.”
After going viral, Duncan was interviewed by the Edinburgh News, where he explained: “It was a spur of the moment thing, I never went in there thinking I was going to do it, I was just so hyped and buzzing to see Beyoncé. I could just feel there was something in the air telling me I needed to entertain people there.”Duncan told the outlet that his sister, who died in 2019, inspired him to dance. “I recently lost my sister, and she was a huge Beyoncé fan, as well as a dancer, so I know that if she was here right now, then she would be so proud, so the last few days have made me emotional that my name is just alongside Beyoncé!”For more stories like this, check out coverage from Insider’s Digital Culture team here.
