Beyonce Gives Fiery Performance of Visual Album at 2014 MTV Video Music Awards
Beyonce closed out the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards with a fiery performance of her self-titled visual album.
Dressed in a multi-color bejeweled one-piece designed by Tom Ford, Queen Bey performed a 15-minute medley of the 14-track LP. The R&B superstar kicked off her performance with the ballad ‘Mine’ and performed ‘Blow,’ ‘Pretty Hurts,’ ‘Rocket’ and other songs.
The highlight came when Bey asked the crowd to sing ‘Drunk in Love’ with her and they eagerly obliged the singer.
Her hubby, Jay Z, did not perform his verse from the song, which would have been a nice added touch. But don’t worry, Hov and Blue Ivy were in the crowd watching mommy do her thing onstage. At one moment, Blue was mimicking mommy’s fierce dance moves.
Another highlight came when Beyonce performed ‘Partition’ in which she and her sexy dancers made it twerk on the stripper pole. And the twerking continued during her rendition of the ‘Flawless (Remix)’ where she belted out her infamous line, “Of course sometime s— go down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”
That was followed by a tender moment when Beyonce performed her song ‘Blue’ with images of the adorable Blue Ivy being played in the background. Yes, it gave us warm fuzzies, too.
Beyonce finally ended her performance with ‘XO,’ which she dedicated to her adoring fans. She told the audience at the VMAs that if it wasn’t for them she wouldn’t be here. The entire crowd stood on their feet as she repeatedly sang to them, “I love you like XO / You love me like XO / You kill me boy XO / You love me like XO.”
Hugs and kisses were definitely felt from the crowd as they continued to cheer for Queen Bey long after her performance was over. Even Beyonce was overwhelmed by the adulation and was became teary-eyed.
Afterward, Jay Z and Blue Ivy joined Beyonce on stage as she was presented the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, which she humbly accepted.
In the end, Beyonce showed the VMAs why she is flawlessly the Queen of R&B.
