For a lip sync competition for a high school fundraiser, Lieutenant Deuntay Diggs of the Stafford County Sheriff's Department the committed the routine for Queen Bey's hit single to memory.

"I watched her video 20 or 30 times the night before and tried to memorize it," Diggs told InsideEdition.com

But the ending was all him. Because the competition was close, he said he felt like he had to finish his routine with a bang, so he landed in a split.

Obviously, the final move was worth it: "I won! I won last year, and this year."

Diggs, 31, said he's also performed to "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift and "Single Ladies" by Beyonce in years' past.

As a deputy of 8 years, he said it was important for him to perform because he wanted to highlight the social changes since he started his career, when "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was still in place.
