Fox News Has Awkward Beyonce Conversation At Inauguration (VIDEO)

Fox News was stopped cold by the sight of Beyonce during President Obama's inauguration on Monday.

The channel's team was having a dry discussion of the president's speech when they spotted the singer, Jay-Z and Paul Ryan all clustered near each other. A bizarre back-and-forth followed.

"She looks stunning, doesn't she?" Brit Hume said aloud.

"Watch out," Chris Wallace warned. "Brent Musberger got in trouble for that, my friend."

"Oh, come on!" an irate Megyn Kelly cut in. "She's an incredibly beautiful woman and there's nothing wrong with pointing it out."

"How did we get so far afield?" Bret Baier asked. "We were in such a great place."

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misspelled Bret Baier's first name as Brett.
