HBO "Girls" star and writer Lena Dunham stopped by the Saturday Night Live studios last Saturday, March 8 to host a hilarious night of fun Lena-themed sketches.

On Monday (March 10), NBC posted a funny skit of Lena backstage with SNL cast member's Kate Mckinnon, Aidy Bryant and Vanessa Bayer doing a take on Beyonce's new sultry single "Partition."

The skit did not make the main show, but it is getting a lot of attention due to Queen Bey's over sexuality and controversial scenes in her version.

The sketch begins with Bayer interrupting the girls excitedly about the "moves" she learned in her "Equinox hip-hop dance class."

Of all songs, Bayer asked the crew to play 'Yonce's new single "Partition" and proceeds to dance stiffly in circles as the trio watched and chuckled:

No arms at all?"

The girls continue to awkwardly stare at Vanessa as Lena chimes in confused: "She didn't teach you anything to do with your arms? This is Beyonce's dance?"

Not too mention, Kate feeling Bey's song a little too much and attempting to bring out the sexy for Bayer with her own bogus moves.
