Lizzo’s raw reaction to Beyoncé at the Grammys is going viral

Footage of Lizzo’s seemingly stunned reaction to the mere mention of Beyoncé’s name during Sunday’s 65th Grammy Awards went viral on Twitter.

Beyoncé is a big draw at the show because not only is she the top nominee of the year with nine nominations; She has also increased her career nominations to 88, earning, along with her husband Jay-Z, the most Grammy nominations for any artist.

The skills of “Break My Soul” hitmaker Beyoncé earned her a special mention during host Trevor Noah’s monologue as he stood among the various stars and industry heavyweights gathered at the Arena in Los Angeles.

“Beyoncé’s in the room, folks!” said Noah. “You know how great that is, don’t you? Beyoncé is nominated for her album, Renaissancewhich, by the way, I think is better than anything from the Renaissance proper.”

“The Renaissance was just pictures of grapes and stuff. Beyoncé took it to another level. In fact, I was so inspired by the lyrics of ‘Break My Soul’ that I actually quit my job. It was that powerful. I just wish Beyoncé had written a song about the importance of having savings before you quit your job.”

While Noah got the audience laughing, Lizzo’s reaction to the first sentence of the TV personality’s monologue sparked a huge response from viewers.

When Noah said Beyoncé was “in the room,” Lizzo, who was sitting across from Adele — another self-confessed member of the Beyhive — was seen briefly jumping out of her chair as she turned, her mouth hanging open in awe.

Blogger KenBarbie shared footage of the adorable moment alongside the on Twitter subtitle: “Lizzo turned around so quickly when Trevor Noah said Beyoncé was in the building.”

DJ Heat shared a GIF of the late singer Whitney Houston, who turned around in even more dramatic fashion while sitting amidst applauding celebrities.

“Lizzo’s reaction when Trevor Noah said Beyoncé was in the room” read the caption, which was accompanied by a pair of laughing emojis.

And while the moment prompted a torrent of similar tweets regarding Lizzo’s reaction, MTV News ran one clip of the “Juice” singer mouthing “Where’s Beyoncé?” with a smile as the camera panned past her.

At a performance on The Late Late Show with James Cordenis popular Carpool Karaoke Back in June, Lizzo opened up about how Beyoncé’s catalog of chart-topping music helped her through tough times.

“When I was shy or not cool and when I was being teased, I would listen to Beyoncé in my bedroom and it would blow me away,” she said per United States today. “I would feel something. I would feel like my life would get better.”

She went on to reveal how Beyoncé’s second solo album Birthday helped her lift herself when she was suffering from depression after dropping out of college.

“I heard Birthday on repeat and I would just sing Birthday all the time,” Lizzo said. “The way it makes people feel is how I want to make people feel with music. She was my North Star.”

During the segment, host James Corden pranked Lizzo, who was born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, by asking if she wanted to phone Beyoncé. When Corden pulled out his phone and started dialing, Lizzo burst into tears.

“I’m kidding, there’s no way I have her phone number,” Corden said, before the pair laughed and sang Beyoncé’s 2003 hit “Crazy In Love” together. Lizzo’s raw reaction to Beyoncé at the Grammys is going viral
