Beyonce Shut Down The VMAs With A Flawless 16-Minute Medley

Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande may have opened the MTV Video Music Awards with a showstopper; however, no one closes out an awards show like Queen Bey.

Beyoncé shut down the VMAs with an epic 16-minute medley of a dozen of her songs.

It was sexy, sensual, raw, and emotional.Advertisement

It was flawless.

The singer's performance came in lieu of accepting the the Video Vanguard Award, MTV's equivalent to a lifetime achievement award.
