TIMES SQUARE (PIX11) -- If you faintly heard the music of Beyonce at some point Tuesday, don't worry you weren't exactly hallucinating.

It's because every hit ever recorded by Queen Bee emanated from Times Square as part of a 24-hour "Beyonce-thon" where fans attempted to set the Guinness World Record for the longest dance relay ever.

It was quite evident that participants were not playing around.

From 'Diva' to 'Naughty Girl' to 'Crazy in Love,' it was smash hit after smash hit.

The dance party, which is part of MTV's first ever "Break The Record Week," started at 11pm Monday night and was still going strong 12 hours later.

The 24-hour extravaganza was also tied to "Music In Our Schools Month" - a month to raise awareness on the benefits of high quality music education programs in schools across the country.

While there were no Beyonce sightings, a star in his own right was on hand hosting the event. YouTube star Todrick Hall, well known for his viral videos, didn't shy away from doing some serious booty popping.

"When in doubt, the robot never gets old," Hall told PIX11 News. "That's a crowd pleaser and its one of those things that's open to interpretation so as long as you do that, you're going to be good."

The Beyonce-thon continues through Tuesday night ending at 11 p.m.
