Beyonce Closes 2014 VMAs With Epic Medley Along With Blue Ivy & Jay-Z [Video]
The 32-year-old singer was honored last night as the recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, MTV’s version of the lifetime achievement award for the VMAs. But instead of running through her greatest hits like last year’s recipient, Justin Timberlake, she performed a medley of songs from her latest album, ‘Beyonce.’
Beyonce sang and danced to 14 songs during her performance. She opened with ‘Mine’ before getting into ‘Haunted,’ ‘Pretty Hurts,’ ‘No Angel,’ ‘Jealous,’ ‘Blow,’ ‘Drunk in Love,’ ‘Rocket,’ ‘Partition,’ ‘Superpower,’ ‘Flawless,’ ‘Yonce,’ ‘Blue’ and ‘XO.’
But perhaps the most emotional part of the performance was when Beyonce sang ‘Blue’ with a slideshow of her daughter, Blue Ivy, in the background. Shortly after she finished, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy came on stage to present a tearful Beyonce with the award.
It’s moments like these that separate artists from the greats!
