#BeyonceAlwaysOnBeat confirms two things we've all known for a while: One, that Beyoncé is a phenomenal dancer (even when she's grooving to songs she can't even hear), and two, that her fans are creative geniuses. The meme #BeyonceAlwaysOnBeat began trending on Monday, and it took mere hours for hundreds of examples of the hashtag to surface. Here's how it works: Fans take clips of Beyoncé dancing, whether in music videos or live concerts, and dub in music of their choice. Magically, Bey remains on beat regardless of what song has been laid on top of the video. We don't know what's more impressive, her sense of rhythm, or her fans' ingenuity.
The creator of the hashtag, Twitter user @MascotMY_Tweets, has suddenly been named an Internet hero — a title he totally deserves. But his ultimate reward wasn't the sudden fame he's earned, or the thousands of new followers he's gotten. It's that Beyoncé herself liked one of the videos. @MascotMY_Tweets should just retire now, because nothing could ever top that.
It's almost impossible to limit yourself to watching just one #BeyonceAlwaysOnBeat video. Once the meme takes hold, you just have to click on the next link. Fans have created clips of Bey dancing to Latin music, rap, old school R&B, gospel, even the theme songs from the kids TV show "Backyardigans." The possibilities are only limited by your own imagination, because no matter the track, Beyoncé is always on beat.
Here are 10 of the best examples of the meme:
Her moves fit so well!
Can Missy and Beyoncé please do a collaboration now?!
Alone or grooving with backup dancers, Bey stays on point.
How does this work every time?
Whether the song is fast or slow, she never misses a step.

Will this meme ever not be hilarious? We doubt it.
