This includes interviews and behind-the-scenes looks at the show preparations, along with the involvement of Beyoncé's 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

Blue, notably, appeared onstage with her mom during her performances of “My Power” and “Black Parade,” dancing alongside other talented performers.

Blue is also shown giving input on the show — at one point, a little too eagerly, leading an educational moment between her and Beyoncé about Blue's etiquette.

In the scene, Beyoncé talks to her team about the songs she wants to include in the setlist. When someone suggests removing "Diva" to shorten the show, Blue — who's sitting nearby — interjects. "You can't take away those songs," she groans loudly.

While Beyoncé acknowledges Blue's feelings, she also reminds her to be soft in her delivery.

"I appreciate your opinion, but you gotta calm down. You can't cut people [off]," Beyoncé says before the clip hilariously cuts off to show her performing "Diva" on tour, as Blue had requested.

The clip went viral on X, formerly known as Twitter, as people praised Beyoncé and her "gentle" approach to correcting Blue's behavior.

"This is gentle parenting," one person wrote.

"See how Beyonce used gentle parenting the correct way. You acknowledge your child’s feelings while also establishing a clear boundaries with a firm tone. Gentle parenting isn’t letting your kids get away with murder like some of you," another commented.

A third person said, "Beyonce gave a great exact parenting. She told her child to stay in a child’s place but still acknowledged her enthusiasm and still used her opinion. I love seeing Beyonce be a mom. Omg."

While someone else joked: "Beyoncé is an elder millennial raised by Boomers. It’s giving gentle parenting with a dash of 'don’t play with me.'"
