Watch: The 2014 VMAs Basically Became A Beyoncé Concert

King Beyoncé took over the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards with a performance of every song from her 2013 self-titled album on Sunday, August 25th.

She may have been the grand finale of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, but King Beyoncé made all previous performers look more like openers for a Beyoncé concert on Sunday, August 25th.

The recipient of this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award took the stage and sang every song from her self-titled album, which released unexpectedly last December.

Bey’s “Pretty Hurts” won two awards for Best Cinematography and Best Video with a Social Message.

She also won Best Collaboration for “Drunk In Love,” featuring husband Jay-Z, who joined her on stage with their daughter Blue Ivy to present the Vanguard Award. Enjoy Beyoncé’s full performance above.
