It's hard to imagine Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" getting any better than it already is. And while many have tried to recreate her iconic dance moves by putting their own twist on it, no one's version comes close to British-Bulgarian artist Gery Georgieva's rendition.
And why is this London-based artist's 2013 interpretation of the Beyoncé hit so memorable? Perhaps it's because she performs the entire dance, move for move, perfectly without any music. Only the sounds of the wind, and the clanking of the shingles on her clothes can be heard. And perhaps it's because the dance takes place atop the snowy Rhodopi mountains. Or perhaps it's because the whole thing is performed in traditional Balkan garb.
