It's not every day someone can come along and absolutely slay a Beyoncé routine, but Nia Dennis did just that while tumbling across a gym floor. The UCLA gymnast performed an almost-perfect-score routine to a medley of Beyoncé songs while competing in a dual meet against a gymnastics team from Utah.
The now-viral routine not only earned her a score of 9.975 from the meet's judges, but it also garnered Nia a whole bunch of new fans who fell in love with her performance, including Gabrielle Union who gave Nia a shoutout on Twitter. "REPRESENT!!!!!!!" Gabrielle said.
The video of Nia's performance posted by the UCLA Gymnastic twitter account has now been retweeted over 17,000 times and earned more than 57,000 likes from people who are sure Nia even made Beyoncè proud. "Did u just get goosebumps, damn @Beyonce when she sees this she will he proud cause as a Beyhive she came thru," one fan wrote. Another posted: "This is probs my favorite leap series done in the NCAA. What a queen."
Nia, herself, was overwhelmed by the support and took to Twitter to thank her new fans for all their kind messages. "I am overwhelmed with happiness and joy, thank you everyone for such positive messages, it means the world to me to have your support. this is so surreal i can’t even believe it! much love always."

To prove that she's now the new queen of gymnastics, Nia fittingly ended her routine by putting a finger-crown on her head, and I am so not mad.
