UCLA Gymnast Performs Stunning Routine Set to Beyonce Hits
That was just the case when UCLA gymnast Nia Dennis recently performed an energetic routine to several Beyoncé songs including Baby Boy, Crazy in Love, 7/11, as well as Destiny’s Child’s “Lose My Breath.”
Dennis earned a score of 9.975. In the end, it wasn’t quite enough to bring her team to winning status, losing to Utah by just a hair: the final score was 198.075-198.025.
Still, the performance was so amazing that has racked up more than 41 million views on social media (and counting) after it was tweeted out by UCLA Gymnastics, plus another 9 million views when Dennis herself posted the video.
Besides fans who can’t get enough of the routine, even celebrities such as Gabrielle Union, Michelle Williams and Alicia Keys among others, chimed in with their positive feedback.

“REPRESENT!!!!” Union tweeted.
“Amaaaaazing! Yes honey!” chimed in Williams.
“Look at this unstoppable power and confidence!! Was just talking about how nothing gives you more power then being yourself! Shine @DennisNia, I’m inspired!!” Keys wrote.
Even comedian Steve Harvey went serious on his thoughts on the performance: “Yes, @DennisNia a performance to make us all proud! Inspiring, you are destined for great things.
Of course, with all the love, Dennis didn’t mind not coming in first place overall.
“I am overwhelmed with happiness and joy, thank you everyone for such positive messages, it means the world to me to have your support,” she wrote on her Twitter. “This is so surreal I can’t even believe it!”
You’ve really got to see the routine for yourself to believe it. Watch Dennis do her thing below!
