Want to see Gwyneth Paltrow dance? VIDEO!

Ohh, you guys will love this!

Check it out! It's Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, her hubby, (the awesome) Chris Martin of Coldplay, 35, and their kids, Apple, 8, and Moses, 6, hopping around the stage to the song "Run this Town" at Jay-Z's concert!

This is really cute. Enjoy!

The video has gone viral — not really because it's adorable and, seriously, how often do we get to see Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow in the same photo, let alone video, together? — but because of what the Internets are calling "Gwyneth Paltrow's mom dancing," "pony-tail whipping" and "champagne sway-dancing."

Though everyone's making fun of poor Gwynny's dancing, we actually kind of relate. Ermmm, maybe that's why they're calling it mom dancing...?

We love the way she tries to get her kids to dance (though Moses, in particular, will have none of it!), and the way she kind of dances like most of us — with the comforting champagne glass in hand (the perfect prop!) and, as our Laura Grande pointed out, "the finger-snapping." ("I shouldn't jest," Laura says, "because I do the same thing!")

Confession: In my younger days, I was a hip-hop dancer, so I can't safely say I don't dance like that. But in a strapless top in front of thousands of people? I totally just might!
