    "I was so happy to be shown because it means Beyoncé knows my face exists."

    So with the arrival of Beyoncé's Netflix documentary, Homecoming, fans everywhere are reliving the epic musical experience better known as "Beychella".

    It’s time for Homecoming. An experience unlike any other is now streaming. #BeyoncéHomecoming

    Shot over eight months, the documentary offers a behind the scenes look at the singer's historic performance as the first black woman to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

    But this post is dedicated to the moment where a fan was captured in the Coachella audience and her shocked expression has collectively been accepted as the mood for the Hive everywhere.

    My honest reaction to every single part of this film. BEYONCÉ. GIRL. 🙌🏾🙏🏾🙌🏾🙏🏾 #BeyoncéHomecoming

    And naturally because it's the internet, the fan has been located and she is Sydney Hardeman, a 19-year-old from Dallas, Texas who has been a Beyoncé fan from the age of 13.

    Sydney told BuzzFeed News: "I was expecting to see myself because I remember the cameraman being in my face the whole time, but I was so happy to be shown because it means Beyoncé knows my face exists."

    #Beychella was unlike anything I have ever experienced. Thank you @Beyonce for being the greatest performer of all time. Thank you Tina Knowles-Lawson for talking to me. Thank you @rihanna for looking at me. Thank you @chloexhalle for waving at me. Wow I’m living my best life😭

    Speaking on the documentary, Sydney said: "I loved the documentary especially because we don’t always get to see things like that from Beyoncé so it was special. It was great to see what went into what was the greatest performance of all time in my opinion."


    Sydney is one of many fans who are spotlighted, but it's her expression which has gotten viral attention. "I’m surprised that it blew up, but I knew once Netflix accounts retweeted it, it would catch attention quickly," said the student.

    Same. (Anyone got a spare inhaler? The brilliance, emotions and genius on display is getting my heart racing in the best possible way.) #Homecoming


    This is soooo me!!! For the past 2 hours

    And many people can see themselves in her.

    As soon as I saw her I knew she was me

    This girl is me 😭😭😭

    Me, to band transitions I forgot about, to the copious amounts of ass, to the vocals, to the behind-the-scenes footage, to Blue overseeing rehearsal with a watchful eye, to the twins, EVERYTHING


    Because when you're in the presence of Beyoncè– this is what it looks like.

    Homecoming is available to stream on Netflix but as is the Beyoncé way, the documentary is complimented with the release of a surprise Live Coachella album. How can you not stan?
