Friday was a big day for the first daughters: It was Sasha Obama’s 15th birthday and Malia Obama’s high school graduation. So how did they celebrate? Cue the “Formation.”

The Obama daughters and first lady Michelle Obama headed to a Beyoncé concert, traveling to Baltimore (where cameras caught them first at farm-to-table hotspot Woodberry Kitchen) and then to M&T Stadium to pay tribute — along with thousands of other fans — to Queen Bey.

Fans tweeted videos of the Obama daughters in the “Beyhive” at the Charm City concert.

When it comes to Beyoncé shows, the Obamas have been there, done that and bought the concert T-shirts.

The crew has attended two of her Chicago shows, in 2014 and 2013, and also a 2012 Atlantic City concert. Beyoncé has performed at many White House events, including the first lady’s birthday celebration.

The singer behind “Lemonade” first performed for the Obamas in 2009, when she sang Etta James’s hit “At Last” at President Obama’s first inaugural ball.

Bey was back in 2010 to perform at the State Dinner for Mexico, and then again in 2013 for Obama’s swearing-in ceremony, during which she serenaded the crowd by belting out the national anthem.

In 2014, Beyoncé was the special guest at FLOTUS’s birthday celebration for the big 5-0.
