A Beyoncé fan went viral on TikTok after concert attendees recorded his elaborate dance moves, with some calling for him to become an official tour performer.
A TikTok user called @emmaneilson0 posted a video on May 21 with the caption, "Beyonce's unofficial warm up was phenomenal!" The clip was filmed during Queen Bey's recent stop at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, Scotland, during her "Renaissance World Tour". It showed a man enthusiastically dancing for more than a minute while a crowd could be heard cheering in the background.

The video received more than 664,000 views, including one from Frankie Duncan, a user who said he was the dancer in question. Duncan reposted the video to his account with the caption: "The fact that I have become Beyoncé's unofficial warm up at her concert has me GAGGED!"
Concertgoers captured the performance from multiple angles, including the TikToker @lori_santana, who posted a video of the dancer from behind as he flipped and slid on the ground in front of a crowd that clapped and cheered him on.

Santana's video received more than 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," another comment with 370 likes read.
Comments on 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. A representative for Beyoncé did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
A few days later, on May 23, Duncan posted a video that showed him dancing alone while Beyoncé's track "AMERICA HAS A PROBLEM" played in the background. "Just incase Beyoncé brings me on stage at the renaissance tour," an on-screen caption read.
After going viral, Duncan was interviewed by the Edinburgh Evening News. He said the performance "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 late 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!"
