Leslie Jones, Tara Lipinski, and Johnny Weir are crazy in love — with Beyoncé!
Sharing a video of what really goes on backstage at the 2018 Winter Olympics, Jones joined the two figure skating commentators to pay tribute to the 36-year-old singer and her legendary 2003 single.
While “Crazy in Love” played in the background, the trio put on their coordinating shutter shades in unison and proceeded to strut down an empty hallway together, showing off their best Queen Bey dance moves.
But after Weir accidentally ran into a vacuum cleaner, nobody could keep their calm, and by the end of the video the whole trio had broken out into fits of laughter.
“LIVING with @lesdogggg & @taralipinski and paying homage to our patron saint, @beyonce! ❤❤❤” Weir, 33, captioned the hilarious video on social media.
The ever-enthusiastic Saturday Night Live star, 50 — who’s currently in PyeongChang as an official correspondent for NBC — also shared a picture with her fellow Bey lovers, adding that meeting the former Olympians turned out as well as she thought it would.
“You guys it was everything I thought it would be,” she wrote.
“@taralipinski is a freaking Queen!! And @johnnygweir is literally the funniest person ever! Had me cracking up the whole time so fun today!!” she added.
And Lipinski, 35, wasn’t shy about sharing how excited she was to finally meet the comedian.
“We have finally met. And then I glitterized her.💎Isn’t she the best?!?! @lesdogggg,” the former Olympic gold medalist wrote alongside a snap of the pair cozying up together.
Announcing Jones’ return as an Olympics contributor in January, NBC Olympics production and programming president Jim Bell said, “Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else.”
“Her passion for Team USA is contagious, and her adventures in South Korea should be fascinating,” Bell continued.
Jones made her debut as an NBC Olympics contributor during the Rio Summer Games in 2016 thanks to the viral success of her live tweets of events with hilarious commentary.
And so far Jones has been cracking her fans up with her commentary in South Korea.
