Ice Grill

Let's see who cracks first...

Posted by Beyoncé on Monday, October 26, 2015

What happens when Beyoncé and gal-pal Nicki Minaj practice for a show together? Well, they make things interesting.

Bey shared a black and white throwback video on Facebook of the pair practicing for their "Feeling Myself" performance, which happened last week for the TIDAL X: 1020 Amplified by HTC concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and whether we were in on it or not, it turns out Bey and Nicki had a little wager going.

While rehearsing for the show, the two divas practiced doing a strong turn to face each other as part of their choreography, and Queen B told her partner in crime, "By the way, ice grill me as long as you can. Let's have a contest. Let's see who cracks first. I have a feeling I'm gonna crack first."

Ice grill?! Don't worry, we'll fill you in. "Ice grill" is a term similar to "mean mug," where you look aggressively at another person with a stone-cold face to let them know you're either in a bad mood or ready to throw down.

Now that you are fully educated on that terminology, let's get back to the situation at hand...

Bey's video showed the duo practicing their ice grill three times. The first time, Nicki cracked first. The second time, Bey cracked first. The third time? It seemed like a tie, but we all know that the round that mattered most was when they hit that stage for the actual show in their sexy Ashton Michael designs.

The sneak peek gave a glimpse at what happened, but then teased "who cracked first?" Fans began speculating on Twitter, with one user posting a Vine video that showed Bey couldn't seem to keep a smile off of her face for too long, LOL.

Hey, either way, kudos to these ladies for being able to even keep their eyes open with all of that wind in their face.
