It goes without saying that Queen Bey delivered a flawless performance and, quite honestly, the best stage presentation of the night (Sorry, Rihanna).
Following a sweet introduction by Serena Williams, Beyonce graced the stage and launch into the album opener, “Pray You Catch Me.” She then segue into “Hold Up,” followed by the fan-favorite “Sorry,” then a fiery rendition of “Don’t Hurt Yourself” and finally closing with her anthemic “Formation.”
Flanked by over two dozen dancers, Queen Bey stomped, twirled, twerked, sashayed all across the stage with such fierceness it was palpable. At the end of the performance, Beyonce and her dancers formed a gender symbol for women on the stage. Talk about girl power.
Overall, Beyonce slayed, no scratched that, she destroyed the MTV VMAs stage. By this point, the other performances didn’t even matter.
Oh, by the way, Beyonce nabbed five trophies, including Best Female Video for “Hold Up.” Yes, we all should kneel at the alter of Queen Bey. Congratulations to Beyonce!
