Well, this just might be the cutest thing ever. A video of Beyonces dress rehearsal for her “Drunk in Love” Grammys performance hit the web on Friday, and the clip seems to feature Blue Ivy singing along to the track and saying, “Hi mommy” in the background.

In the video, Beyonce performs the song while choreographer Frank Gatson Jr. stands in for Jay Z. Towards the end of the footage, we hear an adorable little voice saying “surfboard.” Beyonce says, “Hi Blue Blue,” and the tiny voice responds, “Hi mommy. Hi mommy. Hi mommy. Hi mama.”

The singer then makes a face as if her heart has just melted. It seems likely that Blue Ivy is mic’d and watching her mom on a screen backstage, but it hasn’t been confirmed that it is indeed the child’s voice. Check out the video below, and tell us what you think! (The voice believed to be Blue can be heard at the 4:40-mark). NOTE: The video is no longer available.
