Now, THAT’S how you stand out on an awards show stage. Beyonce blew our minds with her performance at the 2016 MTV Music Video Awards, and we completely lost it. Understandably, the blogosphere could not handle it either — check out the best tweeted reactions to Queen Bey’s insane performance of her ‘Lemonade’ album right here!
August 28 will henceforth be known as Beyonce Day. She stole the show at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY with her medley performance of Lemonade hits, basically treating the world to a mini-concert. “Watching Beyonce live gave me goosebumps,” @JoeyGatto tweeted — um, agreed.
Bey is a pro, so obviously, there were also outfit changes and insane special effects. Renditions of “Pray You Catch Me”, “Don’t Hurt Yourself”, “Sorry” and “Formation” caused Beyonce, as one fan put it, to “SLAY EVERYONE’S LIFE”. Isn’t that the truth?
Here are more of our fave responses:
beyonce's music makes me want to go to a club, set my man's house on fire, start a family, spend all my money, and find God at the same time

I just need the VMAs to stop everything else and dedicate the whole show to Beyoncé. Just her performing the entire formation tour

In short, Beyonce is flawless. She showed off her sick moves throughout her performance, reenacting segments of her music videos while looking fierce as hell the entire time. We’re going to be talking about this one for years to come!
Though she’s a force of nature in her own right, Bey shared the stage with some pretty incredible talent tonight. Rihanna performed multiple times, and Britney Spears knocked ’em dead with her first VMAs appearance since 2007. Kanye West also delivered a typical Kanye rant, and he was supported by his wife Kim Kardashian, who took the stage as a presenter. No shortage of star power at tonight’s festivities!
