Beyoncé performed in Hamburg, Germany, on Wednesday night (21 June), and if it weren’t for her Renaissance tour dancers, Les Twins, she’d be facing some very different headlines about “nip slips”.

The French dancers professionally (and super quickly) saved Beyoncé from a wardrobe malfunction during a performance of Break My Soul, Uproxx reports. One Twitter user responded, “Les twins will forever have a job,” in response to the footage you can watch below.

For concertgoers away from the barrier, the incident wasn’t apparent at all – it was just another instance of Les Twins owning the stage as much as Beyoncé.

The footage is now circulating on TikTok and Twitter, with the Formation singer’s fans praising Les Twins. One fan dubbed them “undoubtedly the greatest in the whole world,” while another wrote, “He said I will not let them Janet Jackson you on my watch!!!,” referring to the Janet Jackson 2004 Super Bowl controversy, where her breast – covered with a nipple covering tape — was exposed by Justin Timberlake live on television.

In other Renaissance tour news, Beyoncé continues to cover River Deep Mountain High in tribute to Tina Turner, repeatedly including the song in her setlists since the music icon passed away on 24 May.

After hearing about Turner’s passing, Beyoncé posted the following grief-stricken tribute to social media: “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.”

Adding River Deep Mountain High to her sets last month on the acclaimed Renaissance tour,  Beyoncé addressed the audience in Paris like so:

“If you’re a fan of mine, you’re a fan of Tina Turner. I wouldn’t be on this stage without Tina Turner, so I want you guys to just scream, so she can feel your love. I feel so blessed that I was allowed to witness her brilliance.”

Beyoncé’s highly anticipated Renaissance tour began in early May. The shows kicked off at Friends Arena in Stockholm, and on the first night, she performed all 16 tracks from Renaissance

She also threw in some old-school classics, such as Crazy In Love, Naughty Girl, Love On Top, Run The World (Girls), Drunk In Love, Formation and many more, making up a whopping 40-song setlist (including medleys). 

Beyoncé hasn’t announced any Australian dates yet, but it will be her first time down under in over ten years when the Single Ladies singer returns.

Sydney’s Allianz and Accor Stadiums are in a bidding war for which venue will host Beyoncé upon her Australian return.
