Grammys 2024: Beyoncé sparks hilarious memes after HIDING under her cowgirl hat during Fantasia Barrino’s Tina Turner tribute to avoid a dance-off
Beyoncé is going viral after viewers accused her of hiding under her cowgirl hat during Fantasia Barrino’s Tina Turner tribute at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday night.
Eagle-eyed viewers caught the 42-year-old superstar attempting to keep a low profile to avoid a dance-off with Barrino, 39.
Barrino paid tribute to Turner by performing Proud Mary and rocking a gold fringe minidress during the ‘In Memoriam’ segment.
As social media flooded with reactions to some of the ceremony’s wildest moments, from Taylor Swift announcing her new album to host Trevor Noah praising his ex-girlfriend Dua Lipa‘s performance, many couldn’t help but poke fun at the 32-time Grammy winner.
‘Beyoncé looking at Fantasia walking through the crowd,’ one X user tweeted.

The reactions come after one of her representatives confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that she would not be performing, following speculation that she would be honoring Turner.
Last month, the Australian Today falsely tweeted that the mother-of-three would pay tribute to Turner onstage.
Beyoncé, who has been open about the influence Turner had on her as a singer and woman, actually got to share the stage with her musical hero when they performed Proud Mary during the Grammy Award show in 2008.
Following Turner’s death in May, the Halo hitmaker shared a photo of herself and the American-Swiss singer on her website, alongside a sweet message.
‘My beloved queen. I love you endlessly. I’m so grateful for your inspiration, and all the ways you have paved the way. You are strength and resilience. You are the epitome of power and passion. We are all so fortunate to have witnessed your kindness and beautiful spirit that will forever remain. Thank you for all you have done,’ Jay-Z’s wife wrote.
