A World Cup win for France wasn’t the only thing the country was celebrating over the weekend: Michelle Obama reunited with Tina Knowles Lawson in Paris on Sunday night (July 16) during Beyoncé’s concert. Yup: All three of these powerhouse women ended up in the same room—well if a concert stadium counts as a room. Lawson and Obama occupied the front row of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s On the Run II concert at the Stade de France Stadium. Sasha Obama attended the show, too, which truly made this concert a mother-daughter affair.
Several fans captured photos and videos of Obama and Lawson, who seemed to seriously enjoy the show. Obama clapped and danced along in an all-white ensemble and massive silver hoop earrings, while Lawson opted for a red and white floral look.

This isn’t the Obama family’s first time seeing Bey and Jay. Michelle Obama and her girls have been frequent fixtures on the Beyoncé tour circuit over the last few years. They watched her perform in Chicago in 2014, at the Global Citizen Festival in 2015 (where Obama actually went onstage to hug Beyoncé after her set), and, historically, at Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009.
“She’s a special person,” Obama said about Beyoncé to Stephen Colbert in September 2016. “She’s a sweetheart. She’s smart, she’s creative, she’s a great mother, she loves her family. She’s just a low-key lady—we have a lot in common that way. Except I can’t sing … I can’t dance.” Her moves at the concert this weekend say otherwise.
