Just over a year after UCLA gymnastics made headlines thanks to Katelyn Ohashi’s viral routine, a Beyoncé-inspired performance by junior Nia Dennis has put the program back in the spotlight. 

On Feb. 27, the UCLA gymnastics Twitter account tweeted out a clip of Dennis’s routine from a competition last weekend that has since racked up over 9 million views. The floor choreography was set to a medley of Beyoncé’s biggest hits, including “Crazy in Love” and a throwback to Destiny’s Child’s “Lose My Breath.”

The 21-year-old punctuated her nearly perfect performance by mimicking the placing of a crown atop her head, a fitting homage to Queen Bey.  Her score for the performance? 9.975.
