They don’t call her the Queen for nothing.
Sunday night was basically Beyoncé’s night as the 32-year-old entertainer performed nearly all the tracks from her self-titled album without missing a beat.
At times, it was possible to forget that we were watching the MTV Video Music Awards in our sweaty living rooms because the whole thing felt like a Beyoncé concert (condensed, of course).Jay Z.
Blue later returned in big screen form when Beyoncé performed — you guessed it — “Blue.” (See? Just like the concert).
“I have nothing to say. I am filled with gratitude. I just thank god for this moment,” she said in her acceptance speech. “I love you all so much. Baby Blue I love you. My beloved I love you. My fans I love you. MTV I love you. Goodnight.”
We love you too, Beyonce. Watch her medley performance, above, and the award presentation, below.
