MTV VMAs 2014: Beyonce’s Video Vanguard Award Performance Includes Home Videos of Blue and Jay Z

The Queen has claimed her throne! On Sunday, Aug. 24 inside The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., Beyonce took the stage for 15 glorious minutes to perform a medley of songs from her latest album before accepting her Video Vanguard Award. 

Wearing a bedazzled, rainbow-colored Tom Ford bodysuit throughout the entirety of her performance, Queen Bey lit up the stage from her booty poppin' moves to her killer vocals.

Starting off the set with the mid-tempo "Mine," Bey, 32, transitioned into to favorites like "Drunk in Love" and "Partition," while also including lesser-known songs like the sex jam "Rocket" and the emotionally intense "Jealous."

While singing her hit "Drunk in Love," she was surrounded by dancers covered in sparkling gold body paint in thongs and bras. After taking a spin around a stripper pole during the lovably raunchy "Partition," the noted feminist transitioned into her girl power anthem "Flawless."

She also sang a snippet of the Nicki Minaj "Flawless" remix, in which she referenced the Jay Z/Solange Knowles elevator fight, singing, "Of course sometimes s–t go down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator."

Taking a turn for the emotional, the mother of Blue Ivy Carter, 2, then belted her song "Blue" while home videos of her daughter and husband Jay Z flashed behind her. She ended the performance singing her love song "XO," in a dedication to her many fans.

Throughout the set, Jay and little Blue proudly looked on from the audience, clapping and smiling. 

In December 2013, Beyonce released her fifth self-titled studio album on iTunes without any promotion, smashing the site's digital download records overnight. In January, she opened the Grammys with husband Jay Z singing their duet "Drunk in Love," complete with a sexy chair dance.
