New York (AP) – Beyonce took home the most Moon Men last Sunday night — and she totally owned the MTV Video Music Awards.
The superstar brought the audience to its feet with a show-stopping selection of songs from “Lemonade.” She wore a floor-length white fur to sing “Pray You Catch Me,” then shed the angelic overcoat to reveal a black bodysuit with lace sleeves and her sculpted figure.
“If y’all came to slay, sing along with me,” she said.
It was pure Beyonce (and her dancers) on fire for 16 minutes as she cheekily sang “Hold Up” and “Sorry.” She threw a different white fur over her shoulders and a snarl on her lip to perform “Don’t Hurt Yourself.” She closed with her anthem “Formation,” her dancers shaping the symbol for woman.
Beyonce won best female video for “Hold Up” and “Formation” took the night’s top prize, video of the year, along with awards for choreography, cinematography, direction and editing.
“I’d like to thank my beautiful daughter and incredible husband for all of their support,” she said as she claimed the evening’s final award. She also thanked the team of directors, choreographers and other pros who helped her make “Lemonade.”
She dedicated her award to “the people of New Orleans.”
“God bless you guys,” she said. “Thank you.”
