U.S. luger Kate Hansen captivated onlookers on Monday, but the most captivating performance might have come before her two luge runs. Her spirited dance routine just needs to be seen to be believed, but luckily, she provided NBC with an in-depth explanation of what inspires those moves.

As it happens, it’s “strictly Beyonce.”

The 21-year-old explained that listening to her “girl B” sends her off “into her own world” in which she is clearly uninhibited when it comes to elaborate public dancing.

Her analysis is priceless, and Hansen even gives NBC a bonus dance after asking reporter Lewis Johnson to “drop a beat.”

Seriously, though, you won’t regret watching it.
