Beyonce killed it at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards — but not without putting in some hard work first. The "Drunk in Love" singer shared several behind-the-scenes rehearsal pictures of her 15-minute medley after the live show via her official site on Sunday, Aug. 24.

The 32-year-old appeared to be all business in the black and white snapshots as she worked with her dancers and crew members. In one pic, Blue Ivy's mom sat around in a circle for a powwow meeting. She also got dolled up for a dress rehearsal and attentively discussed the upcoming performance on set.

When Queen Bey wasn't taking a moment for herself or going through a dry run of the production, she relaxed with her backup dancers during her downtime. In one adorable snapshot, the star helped to braid a dancer's hair with several pals.

The moment — as seen Sunday night — was a family affair for the Carters. Jay Z supported his wife of six years both during rehearsals and during the live show at The Forum despite speculation that there's trouble in paradise. The couple's adorable 2-year-old daughter danced in her seat during her famous mom's set and helped give her the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award with Jay Z afterward.

"I have nothing to say, but I'm filled with so much gratitude," Beyonce gushed to the star-studded crowd, after kissing the rapper. "I just thank God for this moment. Blue, I love you, my beloved, I love you, my fans, I love you, MTV, I love you."
