Emerging as victors in the FIFA World Cup wasn’t the only magical event the country of France was blessed with over the past weekend – this sweet taste of victory paired nicely with a chance to see the King and Queen themselves, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, perform live in Paris, with none other than former first lady Michelle Obama among those who made the trek down to witness their royalty.

Michelle reportedly accompanied her daughter Sasha to the concert, but was seen spending most of her time standing alongside Beymother Tina Knowles as the two matriarchs hung back and let their daughters have their fun – or in the Knowles’ case, provide the fun. You don’t become and Obama or a Knowles without knowing when to cut loose though, and the two of them did just that, dropping a few moves sidestage to “On to the Next One”:

And for those that see the prospect of having to choose between your home country’s appearance in the FIFA finals and Beyonce/Jay-Z concert as the most hellish of Sophie’s Choices, the Carter-Knowles clan feels your pain, making sure to ease the minds of the thousands of attendees by broadcasting the game right before the couple took the stage.
