The mother of one and wife of Jay-Z brought the house down with an epic performance of a nearly 20-minute medley of her latest album. The “Crazy In Love” and “Who Run The World” singer – sang and danced in a metallic leotard outfit declaring: “MTV, welcome to my world.”
She was then joined onstage by her proud husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy. The moment brought her to tears, after numerous rumours surrounding the state of her marriage and a possible divorce.
As she accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at The Forum in Inglewood, California, she kissed her daughter and husband, who called her the “greatest living entertainer”.
“I’m so full. I have nothing to say but I am filled with so much gratitude,” she told the cheering crowd as they chanted her name repeatedly.
“I thank God for this moment. I love you so much. ‘Baby Blue, I love You. My beloved, I love you. My fans, I love you. MTV, I love you. Goodnight,” she added.
True to her husband’s declaration, Beyonce really showed she was the “greatest living entertainer” as she easily outdid her competitors at the show with her performance throughout the night.
