Beyonce may have come into Sunday night’s Video Music Awards leading the way with eight award nominations, but it was her mysterious yet promised big performance that had everyone talking.

The “Drunk in Love” singer did not disappoint either.

Before the night even began it was announced that Beyonce would be receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement.

So, with that in mind, VMA executive producer Garrett English said her performance tonight would be “gargantuan.” He wasn’t joking.

Jay gave his wife the Vanguard Award and called her the “greatest living entertainer.” While she cried, he kissed and hugged her.

“Blue, Blue, I love you, my beloved, I love you,” she told Jay and Blue while accepting the lifetime achievement award.

Last but not least, B gave a shout out to her Christian faith.

“I just thank God for this moment. I love y’all so much,” she added. “Good night.”
