Lil Uzi Vert didn’t get to perform on Saturday Night Live last weekend because of the writers strike, but they may have just gotten something better — an homage from Beyoncé.
The Grammy-winning “Cuff It” singer kicked off her “Renaissance World Tour” Wednesday in Stockholm, Sweden, and gave a nod to Lil Uzi Vert by performing a version of the rapper’s “Just Wanna Rock” dance.
Wearing sparkling silver pants, paired with a matching long sleeve shirt and metallic bra on top, Beyoncé and her backup squad did a quick version of the popular dance during a mashup of “Just Wanna Rock” and her single “Diva.”
The audience went wild and began to sing the lyrics to Uzi’s club anthem.

According to USA Today, Queen Bey performed in front of 46-thousand excited fans.
The set list for the three-hour show included “Crazy in Love,” “Love on Top,” and “Formation,” along with “Church Girl,” “Naughty Girl,” and “Break My Soul.”
The 56-date tour will arrive in the U.S. on July 12, with a stop in Philadelphia, after a string of performances in Europe and Canada.
As for Lil Uzi Vert, they will likely be re-booked on SNL next season once the Writers Guild of America strike ends.
The walkout over pay, streaming residuals, and the use of artificial intelligence in writing projects began on May 2, after contract talks with major studios and streaming services broke down.
