We all know Beyoncé has a lot of great dance moves (how could we forget the Single Ladies music video?). But three french boys on Britain's Got Talent may have out-fierced her to her own songs... in heels!

A new video of French dancers Yanis Marshall, Arnaud Boursain and Mehdi Mamine dancing to a medley of Beyoncé's songs has gone viral. The video shows footage of the trio rehearsing for what ended up being their final performance on the show.

The three guys dance to "Ring The Alarm," "Upgrade U," "Naughty Girl" and "Crazy In Love" with a lot of hip-shaking, body-rolling, and even some booty-slapping. And remember, this is all in high-heel stiletto boots!

The dancer in the middle is Yanis Marshall, the choreographer. He says he dragged the other two into the studio and convinced them to perform with him.

How fierce are they? Too bad the rehearsal was better than their performance. They finished in 11th place.

You might be asking, "why heels?"

The choreographer said he saw his mom dance in heels when he was little, and he's been fascinated ever since.

Now he's fascinated with how viral his video has gone. In under a week, the video has been viewed over 6 million times.

When the rehearsal video started to go viral, Yanis tweeted a reminder to his new fans:

"I was VIRAL way before @GotTalent & I'm still VIRAL now. I'm just starting. Do your homework!"

The three French dancers previously made headlines last year dancing to the Spice Girls around Paris, in a video that got more than 5 million views on YouTube.

Yanis has his own YouTube channel, where he posts a lot of choreography videos, including more dances to Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Ciara, and others.
