Season 17 winners Mayyas just performed a huge gig. Performing with Beyoncé at her recent concert in Dubai.

The collaborative took place at the brand new Atlantis The Royal hotel. Beyoncé was tapped to headline a performance celebrating the resort’s launch. 

Alongside a photo of Beyonce with the group, the caption read “It was an absolute honor to share the stage with the one and only Queen Beyoncé. This moment is dedicated to all the dreamers and believers of the world. Thank you @beyonce and the @parkwood team for allowing us to be a part of your magical world.”

Earlier on Tuesday, the group captioned more photos with “Queen B” that read, “A throne worthy of a QUEEN @beyonce,” adding, “Closing the show on drunk in love was an absolute ecstasy for us. Queen B you got us all so drunk in love.”

Mayyas are first Arab/Lebanese Dance group to perform on America’s Got Talent

All-female dance group Mayyas are the first Arab/Lebanese dance group that America’s Got Talent has ever had. The group appeared on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions and also won Arab’s Got Talent in 2019. 

Mayyas impressed fans with their powerful, hypnotizing and synchronous choreography. Their inspiring first audition impressed judge Sofia Vergara, who awarded them her Golden Buzzer.

Judge and executive producer Simon Cowell called their final performance “astonishing, global and huge.” Howie Mandel exclaimed it was “his favorite act ever on ‘AGT.’” Heidi Klum said, “This is what a million-dollar act looks like.”   

The Mayyas is an all-female alternative dance crew, founded by choreographer Nadim Cherfan, comprising of 36 Lebanese women of different ages. Their main message is female empowerment. The name of their group stems from an Arabic word, meaning the proud walk of a lioness.

“From the moment I first saw the Mayyas, their act was spectacular and gave me goosebumps,” said Sofia. “Their coordinated choreography was the most beautiful, creative dancing I have ever seen. Their empowering performances have earned them the ultimate title and I’m so proud of them and can’t wait to see what they do next.”
