During her Renaissance Tour, when she's performing her song "Energy," there's a part where she sings, "Look around, everyone on mute," prompting the audience to, well, be mute!

“Y’all DID that!” New #MuteChallenge victor??#VEGAS #Round2#RWT2023 🪩

People are extremely serious about it, and even made cards to remind people to shut the hell up when it happens.

The vids are posted daily, and they're always entertaining.

Anyway, Adele is a huge Beyoncé fan, so obviously, she's aware of this challenge.

"You fucking failed miserably, have you not been watching the videos?" she asked.

"I get sent them daily, when she sings 'everybody on mute' you have to be fucking quiet!" she screams.

"Atlanta failed miserably, there was a video I got sent this morning, and when she said 'everybody on mute,' they were like 'wooooo!'"
