30 July 2013, 10:47
The 'Love On Top' singer sent one of her audience members wild at a recent show.
The fan who was caught on camera fainting after sharing a hug with Beyonce at her tour show in Nashville this month has spoken out about the experience.
The 'Crazy In Love' star was performing on stage and shared an embrace with 22 year-old Antoine Rouse from Columbia, Kentucky.
"I was already freaking out because Beyonce had flown over us, and then she went over to the audience, and different people were singing into the microphone, including my sister," he told the Huffington Post. "Then Beyonce came over and asked me, 'You want to sing?' She held up the microphone.
"I was already hoarse from the night, but I screamed as loud as I possibly could, 'To the left, to the left'.
He recalled how Beyonce asked him to continue to sing and then came the moment which felt like "an out of body experience" for the fan.
Watch the moment Antoine fell to the ground after hugging the singer below:
"She grabbed my hand, and that's when I properly freaked out," he said. "It was like an out of body experience. She let go of my hand, and I thought she was done with me, but then she tapped me on the shoulder and beckoned me to hug her."
He continued: "I told her, 'You're my inspiration' and she said 'I love you too' and… that's when I passed out."
Antoine added that he wasn't even supposed to be in the VIP area.
"A lady came round offering wristbands earlier in the night, and my sister, who is normally very timid, asked for some," he said. "She only had two and there were three of us. My friend Greg offered to stay behind, but we felt horrible, so we asked for one more, and so we were able to stay together in the VIP bit."
Beyonce continues her 'The Mrs.Carter Show' world tour throughout 2013.
