While playing a sold-out concert during her Formation World Tour on Tuesday night at New York’s CitiField, Beyoncé proved that even a queen has to sneeze sometimes—like a mere mortal.

At one point during her performance, the Lemonade diva paused before singing her hit, “Love On Top,” to let loose a brief sneeze that elicited a crowd-wide “Bless you!” and a rush of cheers.

Naturally, the Internet had plenty to say about the sneeze and lost no time in doing so, with responses running the gamut from joy to jealousy.

As one fan observed, only Bey-sus could command cheers with a single sneeze.

Others were excited that Bey knew the correct etiquette for sneezing in public.

Some were sad that they missed out on the sure-to-be iconic moment.

Still others were just in awe of the queen.
