Did you notice Beyonce looking like she *almost* fell during the Super Bowl half-time show last night? If not, you’re not alone — you could have blinked and totally missed it. After all, we’re talking about Beyonce here. She could fall down a flight of stairs and somehow make it look like it was all a part of her routine. But our breath did catch in our throats at the thought of Bey falling.

So honestly, if Bey tripped, we would not blame her whatsoever — girl must be EXHAUSTED.

If you missed it, she was dancing flawlessly, as per usual, when she jumped backwards and stumbled just a little bit. It looked, for a second, like she might fall backwards — but she regained her footing and didn’t miss a beat. Neither did the Beyhive, who quickly responded to her amazing balance:
