Beyonce closed Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards show with an epic nearly 20-minute performance.
She was joined onstage by husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy which brought her to tears, amid numerous divorce rumors.
Beyonce sang and danced in a metallic leotard while Blue Ivy and Jay-Z watched from their seats as the diva declared: “MTV, welcome to my world.”
As the accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at The Forum in Inglewood, California, she kissed her daughter and husband Jay-Z, who called her the “greatest living entertainer.”
“I’m so full. I have nothing to say but I am filled with so much gratitude,” Beyonce told the cheering crowd as they chanted her name repeatedly.
Her performance easily outdid her competition throughout the night, though Beyonce lost video of the year, which instead went to a teary Miley Cyrus who let a homeless man accept her award for video of the year.
It was in sharp contrast to the 2013 VMAs, when Miley Cyrus twerked and danced shockingly onstage.
“Thank y’all, my name is Jesse and I accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now. I know this because I am one of these people,” he said, as Miley Cyrus looked on.
“Though I may have been invisible to you in the streets, I have a lot of the same dreams that brought many of you here tonight.”
