Beyonce closed out the 2014 MTV Music Video Awards with a performance that will perhaps rival her 2013 Super Bowl halftime show as one of her greatest acts on live TV.

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!
