Beyoncé and Jay-Z had quite the eventful Paris concert, as part of their On the Run II tour.

Former first lady Michelle Obama was spotted right next to the stage during the show, dancing alongside Tina Knowles-Lawson, Beyoncé's mother.

She attended with her two daughters, 17-year-old Sasha and 20-year-old Malia, though Barack Obama was not present, as he is travelling to Africa for an Obama Foundation conference.

The Obamas and Carters have a long-lasting friendship: Beyoncé sang “At Last” at the 2008 Inauguration Ball, while also singing the national anthem at the 2013 Inauguration Ceremony.

French fans were also treated to a special pre-show broadcast of the World Cup final, which saw France beat Croatia 4-2, their second-ever win of the tournament.
