The Beyhive was right: Beyoncé attended the MTV VMAs not just as a guest, but also as a performer. The singer took center stage at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night for more than 15 minutes, with a surprise medley of Lemonade cuts that included "Pray You Catch Me," "Hold Up," "Sorry," "Don't Hurt Yourself," and "Formation."
It was the showstopping moment of the night. (Don't worry, Kanye is fine with this.) Bey's set, which sought to re-create her wildly popular visual album, featured regal costume changes, flawless choreography, pyro magic, some random photobombing, and, yeah, a friggin' baseball bat. It also ended with a tribute to Prince or feminism. Or both. Watch the full thing above.
